I have a smooth tone, a raspy growl, and a versatile approach. I play many genres and strive to be as flexible as possible with my collaborators. I'm a seasoned saxophonist, playing since the age of 8, so I have plenty of experience performing/recording soulful music. I'm looking forward to working with you.
I am a session Sax player. I currently record with a YAS 62.
Since I'm newer to SoundBetter, I'm offering my session recording services at a competitive price. I'm looking to build strong relationships with other great musicians, and create amazing content with you.
Most of my experience over the last 8 years is in the Soul, Funk, and R&B genres, but have branched out to other genres as well.
I partner with a local recording artist, who captures my instrument beautifully (take a listen to my demos!). I'm grateful to be working alongside him, to bring artists an excellent-quality product for their music.

Vincent is amazing! He was very committed to making sure that my sax stem that I needed was perfect! If you need a sax player hire home to do it for you!
Vincent was great to work with. Very receptive to feedback and happy to work together to get the parts right. Looking forward to working together again.
Vincent's saxophone sounds really nice and he is very easy to work with. I highly recommend of Vincent if someone is looking for an excellent saxophone player.
Vincent was great to work with! He was very responsive right from the beginning in addressing all my requests and delivered a clean track right when he said he would! This was the very first time I have worked with a saxophone artist on any of my projects, and I will say it was a great decision to invite Vincent to work on my project. The artistic sax lines he added brought my song to a whole new level! Highly recommended!
Another session finished. Vincent is very easy to work and his horn always sounds great!
just finished up another session with Vincent and I am very happy with the performances and the turn around time. I look forward to more future projects with him!
Vincent has great chops on the sax.
Vincent just finished up another job for me. He gave me everything I needed, on time and the quality of his horn and recording are great!
It was a pleasure working with Vincent. He gave me what I needed for my song. His horn sounds good and his playing is smooth! I'm looking forward to doing more with him.
I REALLY ENJOYED WORKING WITH VINCENT , REALLY GOOD SAXHOPNE PLAYER AND GREAT GUY TO WORK WITH,FAST AND PRO, GONNA WORK WITH HIM AGAIN FOR SURE!
I work with a lot of artists and also write/produce for sync. When working with top level brands like NBC or MTV it’s imperative that I don’t waste time on the back and forth when I’m searching for the right vibe on a top line melody or hook. Vincent is young, and since I’m all about helping new talent get discovered, I sent him a few songs without any direction just to see if he might surprise me. Wow! He sure did. His tone and choice of licks is very seasoned. You would swear it was an old soul playing if you didn’t know. I highly recommend using him and will be doing a lot more with him.
