Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Darin Smith Jr. was first introduced to jazz as a child where Grover Washington’s CD “wine light” was a fixture in his home. His love affair with Jazz continued with rides in his grandmother’s car where the music invoked the same soothing feeling as it did when he was baby.  At the early age of 7, he knew he wanted to play the saxophone. 


Darin began to master his instrument throughout middle and high school ranking as one of the Top 5 saxophonist in Michigan.  Darin continued to sharpened his skills by joining the world famous FAMU marching band where he played saxophone for the Marching 100’s for 3 years.  After receiving his Bachelors in Jazz Studies he continued his studies at Florida State University earning his masters in Art Administration and becoming a brother of the largest fraternal music society, Phi Mu Alpha.


Shortly after moving to DC to join the burgeoning art scene, Darin joined the prestigious Music and Arts family as a music instructor where he teaches people of all ages and levels woodwinds and percussion. Alongside his trusted horn, Darin performs at parties, clubs, and various events. In his spare time, he works as a videographer and producer to an assorted clientele.  


Darin hails from Detroit, Michigan and is a working musician in the DMV.
