In 2014, he collaborated with James Lloyd (Pieces of a Dream) on to release his first top 10 BILLBOARD song "Play It Forward".

Washington, DC’s saxophone phenomenon Brian Lenair is a musically gifted sax player who treats the saxophone as an extension of himself. His love of music began at the age of eight with his most profound influence, his Dad, who is also a talented saxophonist. His first music instructor encouraged his passion for music and thus began the career of “SAXYB”! Brian joined “Spur of the Moment”, a popular Washington, DC-based band as the front man for over 15 years. Despite the growing success of “Spur of the Moment”, Brian moved forward to pursue a solo career. In 2004, he produced his first CD entitled “The Journey”. Creating this CD gave Brian the opportunity to showcase his talents as an extraordinary saxophonist, producer, entertainer, and songwriter.
