An incredible fusion jazz artist with ten studio albums on his list of accomplishments, saxophonist Marcus Anderson brings R&B, Pop, Rock, Latin and Funk to make music that puts listeners in another atmosphere. Charting number one in both categories of Billboard’s Smooth Jazz and Sirius XM’s Watercolors with his exceptional hit “A Cup Of Joe” from the album And Coffee, the Spartanburg, SC native is delivering major music in a humble way. His work with the late Prince and the New Power Generation led him to join stages with the likes of Ceelo Green, where he has become a key contributor to Green’s touring band.
Whether he is performing for dignitaries such as President Barack Obama, Jesse Jackson and Hillary Clinton or blazing the stage with Sheila E., Anthony Hamilton or Judith Hill in a collaborative effort, Anderson delivers stellar musicianship every time. Lalah Hathaway, Esperanza Spaulding, George Duke, Jennifer Holiday are just a few of the numerous world-renowned artists that Anderson has opened for and with whom he has shared the stage.
Both near and far, audiences of all musical tastes have made their way to hear Marcus Anderson. He not only plays the sax but sings and performs choreography as well. High-spirited and welcoming, Anderson is a multi-instrumentalist who is not afraid of “showing out” and is a fan-favorite at highly recognized festivals and on top-ranking shows like The Tonight Show, Arsenio Hall, and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
