The WiMN is thrilled to announce saxophonist, singer and songwriter Mindi Abair as its first selected award recipient at the upcoming 2015 She Rocks Awards! “What an honor to be recognized with a She Rocks Award,” Abair said. “I think back to my childhood and I’m so thankful that no one told me it was odd for a girl to rock the saxophone until it was way too late. What an incredible journey my saxophone and my music has taken me on.”
One of the most dynamic and accomplished performers in music today, Abair’s seventh solo release, Wild Heart, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Jazz and Contemporary Jazz chart. In addition to her acclaimed solo work, Abair was the featured saxophonist on the 2011 and 2012 seasons of American Idol, jammed with Paul Shaffer on the Late Show with David Letterman and joined rock legends Aerosmith for their 2012 summer tour. More recently, Abair received a 2014 GRAMMY® nomination in the Best Pop Instrumental Album category for Summer Horns, a #1 recording with her friends Dave Koz, Gerald Albright and Richard Elliot, four of the most preeminent saxophonists in contemporary music. www.mindiabair.com
