Maryland-raised saxophonist and vocalist Braxton Cook is a status-quo challenging artist who first broke out in 2017 with the release of his solo debut album Somewhere in Between. Heavily influenced by John Coltrane and Frank Ocean, Braxton mixes the improvisatory elements of jazz and the soulful melodies of R&B into a fresh sound all his own that he calls Future Jazz Soul. His music pulls from his experience as a Black jazz musician in America and his music aims to speak to the margins in society.
While still a student at The Juilliard School, Braxton began his career touring the world with trumpeter Christian Scott. During this time, Braxton recorded and released his first EP Sketch (2014), quickly followed by Braxton Cook meets Butcher Brown (2015).
Following the release of Somewhere in Between (2017), Braxton toured the album internationally performing in London, Japan and across the United States. The album landed Braxton on the cover of Spotify’s The Butter playlist, and four tracks from the album were featured on Spotify's Top 50 Viral in the U.S. playlist.
In the Spring of 2018, Braxton released his sophomore album Somewhere in Between: Remixes & Outtakes, which featured prominent West Coast producers (Swarvy, Kiefer, Allmos).
Braxton is now working on his next project, No Doubt, which is set to release in the Fall of 2018. He embarks on his first international headlining tour in the Fall of 2018 to support the project.
