He doesn’t want to be caged or boxed in musically – and anyway, it would be hard to do so. His latest CD – his first release via his own label, SagiDarius Music – melds again many elements from Hip-Hop, to R&B, Pop, Rock, Gospel, Funk, and Reggae. The artist, who is fearlessly pushing all musical boundaries, is called Eric Darius. He was born in New Jersey, raised in Florida, and now resides in Los Angeles. His whole family is into music: his Haitian father is a bass player, his Jamaican mother is a singer and piano player. His older brother plays drums and trumpets, his sister sings and plays clarinet. Eric himself fell in love with the sax at the age of 9. Aged 11, he started touring worldwide with Sonny LaRosa and America’s Youngest Jazz Band and aged 17, while still in High School, he recorded and released his first album. Later, he attended the University of South Florida where he studied music and business. By now, the energetic saxophonist, who has shared the stage with artists such as Prince, Mary J. Blige, George Benson, Carlos Santana or Marcus Miller, has long made his mark internationally.
