Biography

“It’s all about The Vibe” Dayve Stewart, Saxophonist:

Picture yourself with a silky beverage on the coast. You are on a vacation and the day is flawless with not a cloud in the sky.

You are sitting in a comfortable lounge chair coated in dark red velvet. Suddenly you notice the gentle glance of that special someone. Your eyes meet briefly, a shy smile – that special sizzle in the air.

The music in the background matches the situation perfectly. The warm and smooth saxophone sound seems to know exactly how you feel in that very moment. Excitement, that tender warmness that fills your heart – you close your eyes, listen to the music and smile.

Do you feel The Vibe?

Whoever listens to the distinctive sound of this world-class saxophonist, will immediately be taken on a musical journey through several styles and times. Intuitively he connects with his audience and makes them feel “at home” in every single note. It doesn’t matter how old you are. If you are looking for music that takes your mind off your daily routines and allows you to feel special the way you are – then look no further.
At the age of 11 Dayve already knew that his purpose was to bring joy to live music lovers. Born to a Cuban mother and a Jamaican father, he learned early on what it means to “stand out from the crowd”. Extremely disciplined and always eager to add more “specialness” to his music, he has always known how to inject unique styllings to his performances.
It was not long after he had started learning the sax, when his talent was discovered and promoted by educational institutions as well as fellow artists.

Today Dayve Stewart credits many world-class musicians he has worked with along the way for laying the foundation of his skill. These include jazz pianists Marcus Roberts and Jason Marsalis. In addition, he was one of three saxophone players chosen in the US to study at the Vail Jazz Festival where he worked with Terell Stafford, The Clayton Brothers, Bill Cunliffe as well as Craig Handy. Just to name a few.
Dayve captivated fans across the world for more than a year with his show-stopping solo performance in the production, “I Can’t Stop Loving You” dedicated to the late great Mr. Ray Charles.

Over the course of his still early career, Dayve’s name has become increasingly familiar among Music’s elite performers. Dayve has been featured with world renown musicians such as Jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater, Wynton Marsalis, Brian Culbertson, Kirk Whalum, Stokley Williams (Lead singer of Mint Condition) and actively tours with the Legendary Al Green.

Also a stellar leader, Dayve Stewart started his own band in the summer of 2005 named Dayve Stewart and “The Vibe”. The band currently keeps a busy schedule of exclusive performances Nationally and abroad. This is just the beginning of Dayve’s venture to conquer the hearts of live music lovers around the world.
