Shawn Raiford - Forever
Shawn Raiford Forever Shawn Raiford Sax Productions

A few years ago, before recording his popular debut album MAN WITH A HORN, Shawn Raiford was asked by renowned bassist Derek “DOA” Allen, “Who is Shawn Raiford?” The multi-talented musician’s response: “I’m just a guy with a saxophone who wants to play for the world.” Leading the SRE (Shawn Raiford Experience), he’s been a beloved fixture in the Sacramento area for over a decade. After slyly seducing us this past holiday season with a tasty cover of “Santa Baby,” Raiford sets the stage for his sophomore collection THE NEXT STEP. The project rolls out with the first single, “Forever” – a sultry, infectious and uber-melodic romantic ballad featuring a hypnotic/exotic drum groove, sizzling horn textures with backing support by Andre Delano, a snazzy sax-guitar conversation and Quintina Paris’ dreamy female background vocals that float above the sparkling magical cool.
