Los Angeles saxophonist Dante LaShaun plays with unbounded soul and a musical vocabulary that flows elegantly across multiple genres. After a successful career as a session player and sideman, Dante has emerged as a solo artist and is reaching new heights in adult contemporary music.
Dante believes that “art and music go hand and hand.” As such, his love of music intertwines with a passion for photography. Two years ago, while traveling in The Republic of the Gambia in West Africa to shoot photos for Jermaine Jackson and the “This Is It” band, Dante met Rex Salas, Grammy-nominated producer and former musical director for Janet Jackson. This unexpected meeting proved fortuitous. The two are now collaborating on a project, writing and recording new music for Dante’s debut release, which is scheduled for December. With the launch of his solo career, Dante feels a renewed sense of focus and purpose: “I find serenity in the music. It always comes back to the music.”
