Hill has recorded a new CD entitled "Under the Influence." The CD is a collection of classic rock covers from the 70’s featuring hits from iconic bands such as Aerosmith, Queen, and The Police. Warren Hill is revisiting his roots applying his dynamic style of sax to songs that influenced his musical upbringing. His incredibly dynamic live show has brought him to over 25 countries performing over 1,500 shows.
Highly sought after Grammy-winning guitarist, Norman Brown has made a career of churning out good music for over two decades. His unique elixir of urban contemporary jazz has allowed him to garner a devoted international following and an impressive career as a leader. “Let It Go” is his first solo album in five years. This release is a sonic canvas of 12 mostly original soul-stirring and thought-provoking compositions that celebrate the spiritual and personal journey within each of us.
