Polished! Soothing! Inspiring! These are among the expressions most often used in describing the music of Christian saxophonist, Courtney Fadlin. One who describes himself as the recipient of bountiful blessings; Courtney seeks to exalt the name of Jesus through a committed Christian lifestyle and engaging musical performances. Concerned that many Christians only consider the voice an instrument of praise, Courtney is determined to change that perception and lead believers to an appreciation of instrumental music as a gift from and a source of praise to our Lord and Savior. The son of much acclaimed Caribbean musician, Jethro Fadlin Sr., Courtney's early musical influences were sound. Beyond the skills acquired under the tutelage of his father, Courtney pursued excellence while attending and ultimately graduating from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition, he is currently engaged in graduate studies at the University of Massachusetts where he aims to complete a Masters degree in saxophone performance. Courtney's musical ministry has taken him to various cities in the United States and Canada, as well as several countries in Europe and The Caribbean. While he has performed for both Christian and secular artists, he has maintained his convictions and never compromises his style. As a symbol of appreciation for his noteworthy talent, he has been invited to and has ministered at the Northern California Blues Festival, for the Governor General of Jamaica, and at a United Nations Conference held in Kingston, Jamaica. Among the performers with whom he has shared the stage are Ben Tankard, Hubert Powell, Melba Moore, Jamaican Reggae group 'Culture' and legendary jazz drummer Louie Bellson. He has performed as an opening act for gospel greats Alvin Slaughter, Angie & Debbie Winans, Willie and the Keynotes and Donnie McClurkin. His exceptional talent landed him a featured interview on the syndicated radio show, 'Inspiration Across America' and he is the recipient of numerous awards from national music competitions. Courtney has released four albums - 'Center of My Joy,' 'I Believe', 'Another Chance' and recently released 'The Journey' on the Acquire Records label. He is very much aware that all good gifts come from God. As such he thanks God for his talent and the opportunities it has afforded him. He has dedicated himself and his gift to the expansion of his Father's eternal Kingdom. As you listen to this anointed musician, may the Spirit of God give you peace.
