Antoine Roney

Philadelphia-born tenor saxophonist Antoine Roney grew up surrounded by music. After a short period learning the clarinet, young Roney took an interest in the saxophone, after his older brother - renowned saxophonist Wallace - introduced him to John Coltrane's Live at Birdland album.

Inspired by what he heard, the young musician pursued studies in both alto and tenor sax, and in 1992 released his first album, “The Traveler”. After a few years of touring, he issued a second album, “Whirling,” in 1996. In 2006, Roney self-released two more albums, including a duet with Daniel Moreno.
