DARCY HEPNER
Darcy Hepner is a dedicated performer, composer, and educator. His musical experience runs the gamut from B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, Blood Sweat and Tears, Buster Poindexter, the Artie Shaw Band, and the Berlin Contemporary Jazz Orchestra. He is first and foremost a jazz man playing alto and tenor saxophone; however, early influences such as studio legend Tom Scott and R&B saxophonist Edgar Winter opened him up to the beauty of the woodwind family and the hard edged soul of the saxophone. This complex background has led to Hepnerís diversity on all saxophones, clarinets, flutes, EWI, and recorder. Darcy completed a Bachelors Degree in Music Education at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada; his Masters Degree in Jazz is from the University of Miami and he pursued saxophone and composition studies from Lee Konitz and Bob Mintzer through New York University. Darcy began teaching full-time at Berklee College of Music, Boston and went on to become the Founding Department Head of the Selkirk College Music Program in Nelson, Canada. Darcy Hepner is a full-time musician and lives in Brooklyn, New York with his wife Astrid and daughter Camilla.
