Jack Sheehan
 
Saxophonist, composer, recording artist, educator & entrepreneur, Jack Sheehan, is slowly making his mark on the music industry. The 25-year old instrumentalist has become a growing force on the alto saxophone, having already performed alongside artists such as Terence Blanchard and John Clayton, to name a few. His passion for the music, as well as his personality on his instrument, come together to create the explosive, creative, fiery, yet most delicate style of playing.
 
Originally from Long Island, NY, Jack spent most of his youth in Jensen Beach, FL. At only the age of 6, Jack began taking classical piano lessons where he molded his foundation of music. By age 11, Jack was showing strong interest in wanting to play the saxophone. Throughout his middle and high school years, Jack grew to love jazz where he began to excel rapidly. By 13, Jack was gigging 3-4 times per week. A pinnacle moment in Jack’s youth was when he was asked to perform with Grammy- winning flautist, Nestor Torres. From that moment on, Jack felt as if he had been given confirmation from the universe to continue with his journey in music.
 
After graduating from Jensen Beach High School, Jack began attending Berklee College of Music in the fall of 2012. There, is where he studied with teachers such as George Garzone, Jim Odgren, Shannon LeClaire, Ralph Peterson, Tia Fuller, Greg Hopkins, Dave Santoro, to list a few. Aside from being a player, Jack was eager to learn about a different side of the music industry; business. Throughout his time at Berklee, Jack took classes within the Music Business major. In May of 2016, Jack graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor’s degree in Performance.
 
Jack has performed with artists such as Terence Blanchard, John Clayton, Kendrick Scott, Aaron Spears (Usher), Sinbad, Jesse Colin Young, Luis Conte, Keith Lockhart, Nestor Torres, The Family Stone and many others.

Since then, he has performed with some of the most celebrated artists in the American music scene, including Grammy Award winning Phil Woods, Sean Jones, Esperanza Spalding and Legendary Indian composer Vijay Prakash among others.
 
After graduating from Berklee College of Music, Warburg moved to New York City, where he worked for a year as an assistant sound engineer in the legendary ‘Avatar’ studio (now known as ‘Power Station at Berklee NYC’). There he experienced working under some of the most prestigious productions, artists, composers and sound engineers (such as Disney, Chris Martin, Ryuichi Sakamoto, James Farber etc.).
