Vince Wilburn, Jr., nephew of late jazz icon Miles Davis, oversees Miles Davis Properties, LLC, along with Erin Davis (son of Miles) and Cheryl Davis (daughter of Miles). Wilburn, Jr. is a highly accomplished drummer and producer, who has both toured and recorded with Miles on many legendary recordings from 1984 through 1987, including: The GRAMMY-Award winning album "AURA" -- which he co-produced; "Decoy" - which he also co-produced; "You’re Under Arrest", and the 2008 GRAMMY nominated "Miles From India" – which hit #8 on the Billboard jazz charts. Wilburn, Jr. also toured internationally with the All-Star “Miles From India” ensemble to sell-out crowds.
More recently, Wilburn, Jr. performed with the Miles Electric Band at a sold-out Hollywood Bowl event in June 2012, to celebrate the launch of the USPS and La Post (France) issued Miles Davis/Edith Piaf Forever stamps. The stamp has sold more than 23 million units to date, and is by far the top selling celebrity stamp of 2012.
Wilburn, Jr. is a key participant on industry panels taking place at the GRAMMY Museum, SXSW and CMJ, in addition to partnering with Apple for their “Meet The Musicians” series at Apple SoHo. He recently co-hosted Miles Davis House at SXSW with Erin Davis, featuring the widest cross genre of emerging buzzbands hitting Austin.
In 1989, he founded Nefdrum Productions and has been busy with numerous projects, featuring all-star performances by music icons Billy Preston, Ray Parker, Jr., Darryl Jones, Charley Drayton, Ivan Neville, Wah Wah Watson, Freddie Washington, Randy Hall and Phil Upchurch among others.
He is currently assembling a full length hip-hop, remix tribute to honor the classic recordings of Miles Davis. This was influenced by the great success of a re-mix EP that he co-produced with Nas and Santana called “Evolution of the Groove.” He serves as Executive Producer of the forthcoming Miles Davis motion picture starring Don Cheadle, which will be directed by Antoine Fuqua, and Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter will score the film. Wilburn, Jr. is also an active member of NARAS,
