IRWIN HALL is an award-winning internationally renowned saxophonist, flutist and clarinetist. He got his start in public school and quickly fell in love with music. He attended Princeton University on a full ride to study East Asian foreign relations, unsure that a musician's life was the right way forward. He learned Japanese and after graduating moved to Tokyo, Japan to work as a research assistant to the Editor-In-Chief at a major Japanese newspaper. Not long after, while at the Tokyo Jazz Festival, he ran into songstress Melody Gardot who heard him play and immediately hired him to tour with her band. He quit his job, packed his bags and went on back-to-back international tours as the featured soloist with Melody, earning rave reviews and write-ups around the world. He has since gone on to tour, perform, and record with 3x Grammy/Tony Award winning NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater, soul icon John Legend, bass virtuoso Charnett Moffett, and countless more. He has performed in cities around the world including London, Tokyo, Prague, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Paris, Pori, Shanghai, Melbourne, etc and continues to perform and lead his own band. Irwin will be releasing his first solo album in 2018 entitled, "Smile, For Your Lover Comes."
