ABOUT

Known for his smoky, expressive, velvet-like vocals and dubbed as "The Duke of Jazz Noir", Bunny Sexton is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter and producer – an avant-garde composer creating a musical cocktail mix of what he calls JazzHop and Lo-Fi with a dash of Soul.

"As an artist, I've only ever written my own music", says Sexton. "I'm not interested in covering other jazz artists and paying tribute to the greats. They're already great; there's nothing more I could possibly add to what they've done. I've always been more fascinated with blazing my own trail and being an original artist rather than trying to recreate something from the past – how boring and unimaginative. Although, I do sometimes like, to what I call, 'organically sample' from a tune. You can hear an example of that on my song called 'We Call This Love', where I tastefully borrow a sample from Mile's So What".

After an 8 year contract under the EMI and Warner Bros. Music umbrellas, respectively, Sexton took a 4 year sabbatical from music, but is now returning independently with a compelling original collection of songs that will be released as singles and available on all digital platforms, iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify and more. Coming soon.

Sexton’s distinctive style has been a passport to sharing the stage with many great artists including, 2X GRAMMY® Winner John Clayton, Jeff Hamilton, GRAMMY® Nominee Anthony Wilson, GRAMMY® Nominee John Beasley’s Monk’estra, 5X GRAMMY® Winner Billy Childs, GRAMMY® Winner Bill Cunliffe, 3X GRAMMY® Winner John Daversa, to name a few, and has toured the globe performing on stages worldwide. His music has been licensed in film and television throughout Europe, Asia and America, including shows on HBO, NBC, TBS, Discovery Channel and Showtime, to name a few.

Along with long-time friend and world-renowned trumpeter, Bijon Watson (Michael Bublé, Diana Krall, the late Natalie Cole, The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, Alicia Keys, Harry Connick Jr.), Sexton is the co-founder and co-producer of the popular Jazz Eclectic Concert Series that occurs regularly at The Smith Center of The Performing Arts in Las Vegas. As one of the coolest and most influential presenters of the new jazz age, The Jazz Eclectic Concert Series presents an eclectic blend of world renowned artists including GRAMMY® Award-Winning and GRAMMY® Nominees that embody originality. "Bijon and I are bringing jazz to the forefront of the mainstream market – that place where jazz and pop meet," explains Sexton. "For those with a low tolerance for jazz, we've taken a genre-bending approach, or what we call a Jazz Republic, eroding the boundaries between pop and jazz, writing and performing original music in a vocabulary that combines elements of both."

As a Record Producer, Sexton has been credited on many different records and has also collaborated with a variety of artists in genres ranging from jazz, country, electronic, and pop. Bunny Sexton's production team includes long-time friend, 6X GRAMMY® Award-Winner Bonzai Caruso (Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Damian Marley, Mary J. Blige, Puff Daddy, to name a few), co-producing and writing for major signed artists in the mainstream market.
