Saxophonist, composer, producer, and vocalist Eric Darius is one of those artists fearlessly pushing all musical boundaries from Jazz, R&B, Pop and Reggae to Hip-Hop, Rock and Gospel, creating a very distinctive, fresh sound and approach that is uniquely his own. Hailing from a musical family with rich traditions in Caribbean music (his father is from Haiti and his mother is from Jamaica), Eric realized his calling for music at an early age. He was “blown away by the soul and emotion” of a saxophone being played at his church when he was only nine years old. By age eleven – after only playing for one year – Eric was chosen to be in Sonny LaRosa’s and America’s Youngest Jazz Band. The group toured the country and even played at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. His explosive arrival as a recording artist at the age of 17 caused a frenzy worldwide. Since then, he has released six solo-albums – including a #1 hit single and Seven Top 10 radio hits on Nielsen’s R&R/Billboard Contemporary Jazz Charts – and has shared the stage with world renown, Grammy Award-winning artists, such as Prince, Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige, Carlos Santana and George Benson, just to name a few.
