Tommy Proulx is an example of one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. From high school band-geek to internationally acclaimed instrumental pop star, Tommy is the modern model of a self-produced, independent recording artist, a concept that many in the music industry refer to as “the new making it.” As a popular Instagramer and recording artist, Tommy’s success story started with a single Kickstarter campaign that launched an international touring career, taking his shows to over 40 countries on 6 continents worldwide.
With a Masters degree in saxophone performance, Tommy utilizes his classical and jazz training to break through the music industry bringing the saxophone to a new generation of listeners. His high-energy live shows catapult the audience into a world where the complexity of modern jazz meets the infectious energy of pop, hip-hop and R&B. With the release of his debut album, SaxTrax, his youthful, yet sophisticated sensibility redefines the saxophone as a tasteful addition to today’s urban pop sounds. Tommy’s recording credits span across many genres and has recently landed him his first contribution nominated for a GRAMMY award, Marvin Sapp’s “Here I Am.” An inspirational speaker, vlogger, and music educator in his spare time, Tommy uses his story to inspire young musicians to take pride in the very thing that makes them unique - then wait for the world to catch up.
