Saxappeal: The name itself brings a new image to the music arena. The young saxophonist, born and raised in Detroit, has been playing since the age of 7. In fact, this young bird, barely able to stand on his own two feet, let alone fly solo, was pushed out of the nest (musically speaking), after a mere 6 months of playing his horn. Now, the extraordinary 26-year-old musician brings anxiety, joy, love, pain, passion, and so many more sensations to the stage while performing. Comfortably known as 'SaxXy', he has scoped out his flying territory and has set his sights high.

This ambitious young artist has traveled from coast to coast, performing in small venues in Detroit, to large events in Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, and Europe, just to name a few. His first to New York was to perform at the legendary Carnegie Hall at the age of 17. Saxappeal has also been performing with Virgin Records recording artist, Dwele (also a Detroit native musician) since 2005. To add to his list of accomplishments, Saxappeal has formed a highly energetic band of his own, duly named 1oh1. In efforts to form his own style, which he calls 'SaxSoul', Saxappeal's music is diverse with a blend of jazz, hip-hop, soul, and R & B. This young artist has truly been humbled by his opportunities and eagerly awaits more.

Saxappeal's mission is to rekindle the flame between people and music; which is, unfortunately, flickering dim. His hopes are to touch people through his music, in ways they've yet to be touched. With focus, determination, positive energy, love, and a passion deeper than anything he can explain, he uses his horn to tell stories, state his opinions, and celebrate the gift of music through love. He is truly an illustrator of life, with such a potent message in his music that promises to leave his audience as high as he will soar.
