Tony Exum Jr. Bio
Tony Exum Junior is a wonderfully talented Jazz musician whose distinctive saxophone style has regaled audiences for twenty years. Gifted a saxophone at age eleven, Exum soon developed a love for the instrument’s relaxing, sultry, sound. “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.”
Exum attended the renowned Lamont School of Music where he earned a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies. In his developing years, Exum performed in stage plays, and as a side-man in various shows across Colorado. He quickly became a highly sought musician, performing more than 100 shows per year. Tony credits his success to the “greats” with whom he’s had the pleasure of sharing a stage: The Temptations, The Four Tops, Dennis Edwards, and Special EFX to name a few.
As a live performer, Exum’s smile and sense of humor perfectly complement his amazing ability to blow a soothing and soulful tune and easily connect with his audience. He exudes the unique chemistry evoked when passion and seduction coalesce. Exum commands the stage with an air of confidence, ownership, and humility which is both engaging and pleasing to behold.
In 2018, Exum was signed with TK Productions and has since recorded collaborations with Innervision Records, jazz vocalist Preston Smith, R&B vocalist Travis Malloy, and platinum rap artist CMG of the Conscious Daughters.
Today, Exum spends his time hosting a radio show on Colorado Springs’ jazz station, Jazz 93.5 FM and performing shows on a regular basis. His journey continues with no end in sight. “My journey in music is not a sprint. It’s a marathon.” The world awaits with bated breath.
