R.L.Walker-Meet the Artist

smoothnsaxyHailing from the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia) area, Smoothnsaxy (R.L.Walker) smashes his way onto the Smooth Jazz scene with a collection of tunes that are sure to sooth and please all listeners . Walker has been playing and performing on various musical instruments for as long as he can remember. However, he has really come to love the saxophone, performing on both the Alto and Soprano saxophones.

“Sax-ed or Sax-d” The Smoothnsaxy Experience: Walker’s self defined term for the feeling one gets once they have been thoroughly relaxed by the smooth sounds of the saxophone. He presents an almost therapeutic, meditating, calming and relaxing sound on the horns which quite frankly melts away any stress and/or troubles of the day. When asked who he draws most of his influences from he almost immediately responds with artists such as Kim Waters, Najee, George Howard, Art Porter and so on.

Be sure to take a listen to the sounds of his debut CD "Ear Relevance".  With it's highlighted track, titled "Summer Swag".  Grab a glass, some wine, that special someone or just good friends and enjoy.
