Kobie is a composer, musician, and educator of jazz music. In his youth, he toured with many artists, in addition to working for artists on Warner Brothers and Philadelphia International records. He has had music aired in various programs on PBS, as well as radio stations, and independent projects in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles. While you might not have heard his name, it’s only because he has just recently returned to his love music after retirement from SEPTA. But, make no mistake, he is a gifted musician, composer, and educator who is not to be missed. You can check out his music at http://jawanzakobie.com.
