Elijah Paul is a highly experienced Jazz and Pop Saxophonist, performing regularly both as a solo saxophonist and in several professional bands.
Elijah began playing Sax at the age of 12, and was initially classically trained, achieving Grade 8 after six years. He furthered his studies at Canterbury Christ Church University. Whilst attending he progressively moved away from his classical roots to Jazz studies where Elijah flourished as a respected performer and composer. Since graduating with first class honours in Music majoring in Jazz Performance and Composition, Elijah has made a name for himself as a go-to session musician in the ska/reggae and soul/neo-soul genres, performing across the country and internationally with The Dualers, Mad Yella, Chainska Brassika and Steve Nichol (Loose Ends) headlining on some of the worlds biggest stages (Wembley Arena, O2 Academy Manchester/Glasgow/Birmingham) and festivals (Glastonbury/Boomtown/One Love/Rototom Sunsplash/ Belgium Reggae Festival, Malta Soul and Reggae Festival/Love Supreme).
Elijah is also a passionate solo performer and this comes across in his lively and energetic performances. With a repertoire of over 250+ songs, covering many genres from Pop and Motown classics to jazz and Ibiza House styles, Elijah prides himself on his ability to play proficiently by ear with DJs in any style, as well as creating the ultimate setlist for every party.
As a soloist, he can easily tailor his performance to his client's specific tastes and requirements, allowing them to choose any song they like for their party, even taking requests on the night!
Elijah performs live from memory or by ear and uses a wireless, radio microphone where needed. This enables him to move around the venue or dance floor, creating the perfect atmosphere everywhere he goes.
A solo saxophone performance is a terrific way to add that extra sparkle to your wedding day, party or any other special event. It's unique, classy and fun, and goes a long way towards creating that 'no-expenses-spared' feel without overloading the budget. Solo saxophone music is ideal for wedding ceremonies as well as light entertainment for drinks and dining, and is certain to be a real highlight of the day.
Elijah is constantly seeking opportunities to bring his charismatic sound and solo brand of entertainment to a wider audience, striving to leave his audience on an unforgettable high.
He is able to be booked for Weddings, Private Parties and Corporate Events, as well as studio and session work with bands or solo artists.
