Kevin Hall
November 8, 2021

Growing up on Buffalo NY’s west side, in a very diverse melting pot of cultures, saxman Kevin Hall learned his appreciation for the many styles of music that have helped shape who he is today. From such influences as Grover Washington Jr, David Sanborn, George Benson, Grant Green, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Michael Jackson, The Police, Chicago, Kiss, and Supertramp just to name a few, Kevin’s eclectic tastes have helped to give his Smooth Jazz a freshness and a distinct sound that is appreciated by all who hear him play.

Hall has opened up for Pieces Of A Dream, and has appeared with Fred Hammond & The RFC on the Fox Family Network. Kevin studied music at the University Of Buffalo, and has studied privately with Alvin Sheppard and Buffalo sax icon Dave Schiavone.

Many artists struggle to establish their musical identity, laboriously trying on different musical styles like a piece of clothing, looking to find what fits. But there are others that emerge fully formed, in full command of their craft, their identity and their music. Kevin Hall fits firmly in the latter category. His new upcoming EP, "Why Not", is a captivating and moving debut that heralds the arrival of a gifted and significant new talent in the Smooth Jazz genre, one whose music feels familiar in the best possible way, while striking out on its own territory. So, keep your eyes and ears open because big things are on the horizon for Kevin Hall, and you’re all invited to help him make the journey...
