Adrian Crutchfield started his musical journey at age four when he received his first saxophone during a concert in Roanoke, Virginia from acclaimed jazz artist, Kenny G; who noticed Adrian’s interest from the audience, stopped the show, and invited him to the stage, playing a childish melody, and finally bestowing the sax to young Adrian.
Adrian graduated from Florida State University with a BA in Music with a concentration in jazz, contemporary media and commercial music. Adrian has had the privilege of performing with some of today’s brightest stars such as Anthony Hamilton, Fantasia Barrino, KC and JoJo, Adina Howard, Regina Belle, Young Jeezy, Lionel Richie and Prince. Adrian has been featured by names such as Kim Waters, Alex Bugnon, Branford Marsalis, Fourplay and The Gap Band.
Only in his twenties, this saxophone aficionado is poised and ready to become one of his generation’s most prolific and successful professional musicians.
Adrian is touring this past year with Lionel Richie and Prince.
Adrian is using Antigua Power Bell alto saxophone- AS4240CN.
