I'm Syl DuBenion, an alto saxophonist from Buffalo, New York. I write a lot of music, a little bit of poetry. Singing is a lot of fun. I like to make people laugh. I’m learning that there are fewer differences in creating than I think we tend to believe, understand. You can read more in-depth information about me here.
When I was a kid, I would imagine myself as a character of my favorite television shows. I would dream I was the person creating my favorite songs. If you have the imagination to create something, don’t let yourself reduce that idea. It doesn’t need to conform. It just needs to exist.
I write a lot of music. Even when I'm passing through a place, I like to take down my ideas and use them later. I wrote this song when I was visiting Boston in December of 2013, but I didn't think my playing the melody would suffice to complete the song. I sent the song to Raquel Rivera the following April and when I moved back to Boston for the summer, we arranged this recording of it. I remember coming back to my apartment one afternoon and being floored listening to the lyrics she came up with. With time, we should have some more music to present to y'all. Recorded at the Berklee College of Music, June 2014. Shout out to Ryan Easter who played earlier in that set.
