Eddy Nubine, gospel saxophonist extraordinaire, has been blessed with a gift from God to redefine the parameters of gospel and jazz music as we know it. Nu Flava Magazine nominated him, as a Top Ten artist in the jazz category for a song he performed off of his “Put Your Trust in Him” CD. He has performed as a show opener for numerus artists. Elder Nubine is revolutionizing gospel instrumental music with the perfect mix of John Coltrane and Kirk Franklin, and he is beautifully blending the creativity and intuitiveness of jazz with the praise and devotion of anointed gospel music without compromising the gospel message.

Eddy’s third CD project release titled "Time With The Father" is a CD project that features some of Eddy's best arrangements as well as original compositions that leave a lasting impression. There are 15 tracks on this project that range from ballads to up-tempo tunes. This is a nice mix of gospel jazz, and urban gospel. Eddy’s fourth and latest release titled “Bridging The Gap” is not just a CD it is a movement. This project has been birthed based on a passion Eddy has, to see visible change in local communities and the world at large.
“ There is a Gap between God and man. There is a racial gap, a generational gap, a gender gap, a gap between the rich and the poor, there is an education gap, and many more gaps seen and unseen. In order to bridge these gaps we must be willing to make changes and even sacrifices on a personal level. We should not only expect change but we should also accept change. For those who have no relationship with God may I suggest that you start by saying this simple prayer: Lord, I know I am a sinner and I have not lived a life that would please you. I believe that Jesus suffered and died on the cross on my behalf and was raised from the dead again on the third day. I am sorry for the sins I have committed and I ask for your forgiveness. I accept you as the Lord of my life in Jesus Name, Amen! If you have prayed this prayer you have now crossed over the first and ultimate bridge of change. Now you are a new creature. Treat people you meet with respect regardless of their race, age, gender, or social status. This is the starting point. Let us move forward with the help of the Lord to Bridge The Gap!”
Eddy plans to continue traveling and ministering the Gospel through preaching and music.
