Biography

Lenair’s love for music began at the age of eight in his home in the Washington DC area where he grew up. His most profound influence came from his dad, who also plays the saxophone. His first music instructor in junior high school, Bruce Tyler, also encouraged his love for music. Brian credits the works of jazz greats Grover Washington, Jr. and Stanley Turrentine for inspiring him to play as well.

Although Brian began his studies at the University of Maryland as an architect/interior designer, his love for music could not be contained. It wasn’t long before Brian formed his first band called 41/2 Hours. He remained with the group for four years as they established a name in the DC area.

Brian eventually left and in 1990 joined a new group called Spur of the Moment. As the front man for the Washington DC based band, they astounded audiences with their mixture of jazz and R&B sounds for over 15 years. During that time, Spur of the Moment recorded two CDs entitled Sporadic and Out of the Shadows, which greatly features Brian’s talent as a saxophonist and composer.

Despite the success of the group, Brian felt the need to move forward to pursue a solo career. In 2004, Brian cut his first CD entitled The Journey. Creating this CD gave Brian the opportunity to express his God given gift as well as showcase his talent as an incredible saxophonist, producer and songwriter. “I was fortunate enough to have a great deal of creative input on my first solo album,” say Lenair.
