For Eric Darius there are no limitations when it comes to breaking new ground. Internationally known as an elite Jazz/R&B Saxophonist, Songwriter, Producer, and Performer, Darius most recently dropped, Summer Feelin’ Featuring Paul Jackson, Jr., the first single from his upcoming album which became a rallying anthem of hope during the pandemic, capturing the feeling of togetherness. He is now slated to release his second single, That’s My Jam Featuring Justin Lee Schultz on March 25th.
This upbeat, feel good song captures the exhilarating grooves and high energy of his legendary live show and is sure to be his next Billboard chart-topping hit! That’s My Jam is a song that Darius wrote that pays homage to one of his closest friends who recently passed, Willie Payne. “He always lived life to the fullest and was the life of the party everywhere that he went! Any time he heard one of his favorite songs, he’d yell out: ‘That’s My Jam!’ and hit the dance floor. This is one of those jams that captures his infectious energy that I know he would’ve loved, so it felt right to name the song after one of his favorite past times…living it up and dancing like no one is watching! With so much going on in the world around us today, this song is about inspiring others to live their best life and just dancing to the rhythm of life.”
As for Eric’s upcoming album, this project will be his second release via his own independent label, SagiDarius Music. His most recent album Breakin’ Thru released in 2018 was a huge commercial success, yielding four #1 hits on the Contemporary Jazz charts, however, this upcoming project due this Summer promises to be his best to date!
Produced by GRAMMY award-winning musician, Philip Lassiter (Prince, Kirk Franklin, Ariana Grande), this album features collaborations with Paul Jackson, Jr., Justin Lee Schultz, Mononeon, and many others, musically blurring the lines between Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, Funk & Pop! A worldwide tour is also in the works to promote the new album.
