Combining their respective musical background and influences, saxophonist Daniel Séguin and bassist David Marion began collaborating in the fall of 2006. The result of this tasteful collaboration is their much anticipated debut album "Back Alley" that they both composed, recorded and performed at SonicBox Studio in Vancouver, Canada (with guest vocal performance by singer & songwriter Myra Maud on the beautiful ballad "For You").
Featuring eleven original compositions in an array of styles from Soul, Jazz, R&B to African vibes and Latin, "Back Alley" will certainly appeal to many contemporary Jazz-Rock, Soul and Smooth Jazz lovers.
Berklee College Of Music scholarship recipient and alumni, David Marion has influences deeply rooted in Gospel music, Funk, R'nB and Rock. He also studied with Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey and Adam Nitti at the Bass/Nature Camp in Nashville, TN. David Marion played and toured around the world with many acts including Latin Grammy Award winner Alex Cuba and Canadian Smooth Jazz winner Gabriel Mark Hasselbach. (www.bassmarion.com)
