280328984_4859805364118472_1850326239537617002_nJason Peterson Delaire, a member of the Peterson family of Minneapolis, is known as a prolific saxophonist, keyboardist and singer. He toured with such artists as Oleta Adams, Prince, Alexander O’Neal, Richard Marx, Solo, Donny Osmond, and Cherrelle and recorded with Michael Bolton, Alexander O’Neal, Prince, Donny Osmond, as well as Bobby Brown, Ben Sidran and Flyte Time Productions.

Designated as a smooth jazz musician his solo project In My Life (2009) is although pure R&B. Well, the influence of Prince on DeLaire’s music is undisputable. His newest project is the EP After Hours (2022). DeLaire’s multi-faceted five track EP showcases two distinct sides of his artistry. First, there’s his blistering funk sax vibe on the high-octane radio airplay chart hits he scored with veteran guitarist Chris Camozzi, with titles that collectively tell a story of a fun night on the town. He balances those with his sparkling magic as a singer/songwriter, including a universal love anthem featuring Oleta Adams, Jarrod Lawson and Rockie Robbins) and a gorgeous, romantic ballad.
