Biography

The complexions of our emotions told through soul; the rhythmic seduction for sweet surrender illustrated by pitch and tone…simply the spiritual potency of the saxophone. The sax plays our pain and stirs our hearts with a breath of sonic truth. A soulful rhapsody of a singer, musician, and actor within one sublime talent, that of Demo Cates

Cates has earned the respect of Jazz musicians at home and abroad with his visionary method and superlative talents, he now attempts to give his fans more of him with his swooning tunes, inviting you to ‘try something new’ by visiting his website, www. democates.com for the latest pictures, concert dates, and tracks from the acclaimed sax-player giving a sneak peek of his new album titled “Smooth…Try Something New”.

Grown and developed in Detroit Michigan but exposed and revered in Toronto , Cates is a mature Musician and Vocalist from Detroit who in his words, ‘plays on emotions and allows the sax to translate inspiration in smooth and sensuous sounds.’ The “7 Mile”, Latin and R&B Music inspired Detroit native, sources the Motown era as his constant source of motivation for his first band, The Fabulous Counts , a 4-piece band that opened for greats like Al Green and Stevie Wonder.



Having honed his craft since the age of nine, Cates mesmerized audiences with his skills with the sax, but it was musical stage productions that challenged him in all areas. From early years in training at the Lee Strasberg Acting School , to playing “Mufasa” in the Broadway production of Disney’s, “The Lion King”, Cates has had the opportunity to fully showcase his musical and vocal gifts.
