“Silverstein Works Ligatures provide me the versatility and tonal control I need to shape my sound. Truly, the best ligatures I’ve ever played”
I uncovered my passion for music when my grandmother bought me my first alto saxophone in 1997. From that point, I knew I had found my calling and followed my dream from California to Nevada. I’m a self taught saxophonists and have developed my ear by listening to some of the greatest musicians of all time. In the early 2000’s, I opened up for Starship and played a cool show for Arnold Schwarzenegger. From 2000 until now I’ve played corporate events, weddings, wineries, fine dining restaurants, hotels, etc. I’ve always been around music since I was a young kid. My grandparents, mother and auntie sang in the church choir. What’s strange is, I had no idea what jazz was and actually listened to heavy metal bands like Metallica in high school. In 1996 or so I heard Kenny G and Grover Washington for the first time on a pop radio station called 102.7 Kiss FM and really enjoyed the music. From that point, I became mesmerized by traditional jazz. Blues, R&B, Soul, Motown, Contemporary Jazz and the rest was history. I would consider my style of play melodic and soulful. I really love melodies that bring our emotion while I’m playing in front of an audience. I write most of my own music and produce from my Las Vegas home studio. Music unites our hearts and is healing. I find inspiration all around me. My music influences stem from Curtis Mayfield, James Brown, The Isley Brothers, Barry White, Al Jarreau, Grover Washington Jr and Kenny G.
