Sean Payne

Alto Saxophone

This event is part of our Young Musicians Series, supporting the artists of tomorrow.

Growing up in a musical family, Sean Payne started learning the saxophone at the age of 8. In 2014, at just 13, Sean was the youngest ever finalist in the first ever BBC Young Jazz Music of the Year Award. Sean currently lives in London and plays regularly with Clark Tracey’s new quintet, who recorded their first album in April 2018. In September 2018 he formed the Sean Payne Quartet, playing original music, and most recently in August 2019, Sean was a semi-finalist in the first ever Michael Brecker International Saxophone Competition held in Eilat, Israel.
