Thanks for supporting Derek Brown, and helping him share his inspiring, one-of-a-kind music throughout the world! Living on the road, creating high-quality music videos and tutorials, writing and recording music takes a lot of time and resources. Your monthly support will greatly help sustain Derek's creative energy and passion to continue inspiring the next generation of music creators and listeners!

From his 30 million+ views across various social media platforms to his interviews on international television and NPR’s Weekend Edition, Billboard-charting saxophonist Derek Brown has been exploding across the world music scene. Crossing genres from jazz to classical to funk, Brown's unique "BEATBoX SAX" playing style must be seen to be believed.

Derek's latest project is an epic undertaking: his FiftyFifty Tour has him attempting to play at least one gig in each of the 50 states in nine months (Aug. '18-May '19). He'll be living on the road with his wife during the tour, camping out in whatever vehicle they can cobble together.

As described by jazz journalist/historian Scott Yanow, "Brown performs unaccompanied solos that occasionally make one recall Bobby McFerrin in his early prime and the great saxophonist Eddie Harris . . . utilizing slap-tonguing, circular breathing, a wide interest in musical styles and dazzling coordination to create rather unique music."

Derek received his BM in Music Performance (Classical and Jazz) from Hope College in 2006 and his MM in Jazz Studies at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music in 2008. Derek has performed solo concerts throughout China, Russia, Japan, Germany, France, Poland, UK, Norway, Finland, Malaysia, Latvia, Serbia, Israel, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Brazil, Dubai, as well as throughout the U.S.

Derek endorses Legere (reeds), JodyJazz (mouthpiece), P.Mauriat (saxophone), BG France (ligature), and AKG (microphone).

For the price of one latte every month, you can rest easy knowing you're supporting great music. Or maybe you're resting easy because you have less caffeine in your system. Either way: win win!

We couldn't decide between $20 and $25 so we split the difference. If you're ever indecisive about anything in life, this is the tier for you. Don't overthink it!

Let's be honest - you're not using your actual gym membership, so drop it and use that dough to support creativity instead! Derek even promises to do one pushup dedicated to you every month.

Your significant other may not like this one so much, but you can still make the most of it...instead of dinner and a movie with the one you love, stay in, make frozen pizza, and watch BEATBoX SAX youtube videos together. For dessert, eat the satisfaction of knowing you were a part of making them possible.
