Event Details

Tony Exum, Jr., National Recording Artist’s saxophone style brings to mind the sultriness of Grover Washington, Jr., the soulfulness of David Sanborn, the silky smoothness of George Howard, and the tender passion of Ronnie Laws. Thomas “Tony” Exum, Jr. was born in Colorado Springs, CO. He spent much of his childhood travelling from Germany, to Mississippi, to New Orleans, and back, due to his military upbringing. As a child, as early as age 3, Tony’s interest in “grown up” music was extensive. For Christmas, at the age of 6, Tony received Parliament-Funkadelic albums, but by then, he was already a huge fan of Slave, the Jacksons, S.O.S. Band, RUN DMC, LL COOL J, and of course, New Edition. He not only could recite the words to his favorite tunes, but could also identify any instrument! At the age of 11, Tony picked up a saxophone given to him by his uncle Larry, a U.S. Army musician for Fort Carson, for the first time and soon developed a love for it. He later developed a passion for the sounds he could create with the saxophone, even being asthmatic; and this is where his journey began. “I knew I would be a musician of some sort. The saxophone intrigued me and quickly became the way my heart wanted to express itself musically.” says Tony Exum, Jr. Tony Exum, Jr. attended the highly-acclaimed, prestigious Lamont School of Music, University of Denver, and believes that this is truly where his career began.

By the mid 80’s, Monty developed into a multi-faceted, producer, keyboardist, songwriter and vocalist and was soon noticed by the legendary Quincy Jones who signed him a staff songwriter exposing him to great writing and producing opportunities. He temporarily placed his aspirations as a solo artist on the back burner to pursue those opportunities which lead him to write, produce or perform with such notables as Kelly Clarkson, Tyrese Gibson, Oleta Adams, James Ingram, El DeBarge, Ingram, Lakeside, Deniece Williams, Diana Ross, Michael Bolton, Kashif, Randy Travis, The Jacksons, New Kids On The Block as well smooth jazz legends Hiroshima, Paul Jackson Jr., George Duke, Stanley Clarke, Gerald Albright and many more. Amongst the many singles of Monty’s to hit the billboard charts is the classic soulful gospel tune “Say Amen”, sung and co-written by his long-time writing partner, Howard Hewett. He recently shared the stage with Larry Graham at the Cancun Jazz Festival and with Adam Hawley who happens to be featured on his cd. His talents as a music producer and songwriter have awarded him many top ten singles and tens of millions of cd’s sold with many awards to follow including an Emmy nomination, ASCAP awards, Annie nominations and many film and television credits as a writer and producer.
