Saxophonist, composer, recording artist, educator & entrepreneur, Jack Sheehan, is beginning to make his mark on the music industry. The 23-year old instrumentalist has become a growing force on the alto saxophone, having already performed alongside artists such as Terence Blanchard and John Clayton, to name a few. His passion for the music, as well as his personality on his instrument, come together to create the explosive, creative, fiery, yet most delicate style of playing he is known for. Book now to see this young virtuoso in person!
At only the age of 6, Jack began taking classical piano lessons where he molded his foundation of music. By age 11, Jack was showing strong interest in wanting to play the saxophone. Throughout his middle and high school years, Jack grew to love jazz where he began to excel rapidly. By 13, Jack was gigging 3-4 times per week. A pinnacle moment in Jack’s youth was when he was asked to perform with Grammy-winning flautist, Nestor Torres. He later graduated from Berklee College of Music, and has performed with Terence Blanchard, The Family Stone, Usher and more.
