One of the premiere saxophonists in the world, Marcus Anderson is not only a sought after solo artist, with eight albums to date, who performs to audiences all over the world, and who accompanies other great artists such as CeeLo Green and Judith Hill, but he is also known as being a featured saxophonist with the late Prince’s New Power Generation. In addition to being a sax maestro, Marcus plays the flute, sings, writes, dances, produces and arranges music; his talent is undeniable to most audiences and to his peers. As if that wasn’t enough, his recent accomplishments include ranking #1 on Billboard's Smooth Jazz chart.
Marcus Anderson recently became a key contributor to CeeLo Green’s tour band, traveling internationally with the Love Train Tour. Marcus is no stranger to notoriety touring often with his own band both as a recording artist and performer.
Marcus Anderson has played with several headliners during guest appearances on well-noted shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Arsenio Hall Show, Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show. He is a veteran and audience favorite at such notable festivals as the Essence Music Festival, Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival, Seabreeze Jazz Festival, Capital Jazz Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival, and more.
As a solo artist, Marcus has been honored to open for and join on stage artists such as Ledisi, Lalah Hathaway, Brian Culbertson, Esperanza Spaulding, Peter White, Boney James, Kirk Whalum, Gerald Albright, George Duke, Wynton Marsalis, Alex Bugnon, Nnenna Freelon, Jeff Lorber, Bob Baldwin, Jennifer Holiday and The Sax Pack.
