Batie is an exceptional and gifted instrumentalist, who has come to take music, as we know it, to a new level.
Born in St. Augustine, Florida, Batie started playing the saxophone at the age of six. Because his father served in the US Army, the family moved often. While on tour, music became one of the few constants in his life. By the time he graduated high school in Heidelberg, Germany, Batie could play several instruments. .
Batie honorably served in the US Air Force after high school. He gained serious performance experience appearing at fundraisers, political functions and military ceremonies.
Batie has performed in major cities in Europe and Canada and is making a name for himself in New York, Atlanta, New Orleans and Washington D.C. The highlight performance of his career thus far, was at the world famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York, where he received a standing ovation.
Batie currently performs locally around the Miami area and various spot dates around the US and Europe.
