Born and raised in CA, Adrian started playing Sax at the age of 10, where he immediately tossed aside grade school music by trading Mary Had a Little Lamb for the work of Stan Getz and the Funk of Motown. He learned to play these songs by ear front to back.
Later, what caught his attention were sax greats Lennie Pickett, Maceo Parker, and rock sax players Bobby Keys and Clarence Clemons. Combined with music from guitar players Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimmy Paige, and Keith Richards, Adrian created a powerful, melodic style of his own.
Adrian plays music that is IN YOUR FACE. Music that makes people feel free, delivering energy and soul to the listener.
Touring since the age of 19, he has played everything from swing, rock, latin and funk, to blues, soul, jazz, hip-hop, and reggae. He has performed with established bands and has built a following.
Adrian has a passion for working in the studio. He has recorded on numerous occasions with late legendary classic rock producer Andy Johns, and current hit maker Lewis Richards. He also is a successful studio harmonica player.
You can hear Adrian and his famed saxophone on singles by Alice Cooper, Micah Brown, Iration and of course his own solo work “AO”. For the last few years, he has had steady studio work from Epic and Sony Records. Catch him live with Iration, AO and others.
