Darren Rahn live @ Mallorca Smooth Jazz Festival 2013

A master’s level jazz graduate from the University of Northern Colorado, Canadian born saxophonist Darren Rahn at his age has already achieved more than most musicians dream possible over the course of a lifetime. As one of the contemporary and smooth jazz genre’s hottest producers, Darren has worked with many notable artists such as Jonathan Butler, Bob James, Kirk Whalum, Jeffrey Osborne, Phil Perry, Jeff Lorber, Michael Lington and many others, including the #1 chart productions for Dave Koz, Eric Darius, Tim Bowman, Najee and Wayman Tisdale.

Rahn began working behind the scenes in the mid-90ies producing and programming tracks for other artists. It was his work with Wayman Tisdale in 2004 that would bring Rahn to the forefront of the music industry. Since then, he has become a staple of the genre and been a dominant force on the charts over the past decade with more than 20 smash hits.

As a solo artist, he has scored three top five hits in the Billboard Jazz Song Charts, including his #1 smash hit “Talk of the Town” which happens to be the title track of his CD in 2009. His forth and latest solo record “Speechless” was recently released and is available in the stores now.
