Report Music: I Give Myself Away - Seyi Alesh (Saxophone Version)

Seyi Aleshinloye, also known as Seyi Alesh, is a worshiper that loves God  & displays his heart with the vocal breaths he infuses into his saxophone. The current Los Angeles based musician was born in Kwara State, Nigeria. He organizes  an annual concert known as "Seyi Alesh and Friends in Concert" (SAAFLIC)  and is hosting the next one in Nigeria for 2014. 

He studied the Theory of music and majored in the Saxophone at Lagos State University  and Muson. Later, he furthered his education with ABRSM, London and is presently  studying music through Berklee College of Music, Boston, U.S. He has worked with well known-artists Kunle Ajayi, Sammie Okposo, Tope Alabi and many  more in Nigeria,and played on the same platform with popular artists Kirk Franklin,  Donnie McClurkin, Hugh Masekela & Israel Houghton. 

He loves the sound, the emotions, as well as the expression that the saxophone exudes. He also plays the piano and the drums, but believes neither of those instruments move his  heart the way the saxophone does. He states: "With the sax, I am able to breathe life into the instrument in order to produce its sound."

The song "I give myself away", originally written by William McDowell, is full of power and has such a great message about worshipers and surrendering to God in worship. So many people who love the saxophone need to hear this song rendered as an instrumental from another worshiper who has been touched by its message. Hence Seyi's decision to  record this one. 

May it be a blessing to you and yours.
