Skip Pruitt

Hailing from the birthplace of Motown, Detroit Michigan; Skip has been playing the saxophone since the tender age of six. Although influenced by such greats as, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker and Grover Washington; it was hearing his father, the late Benjamin Pruitt, Sr., who inspired him to play the saxophone. One thing, Skip loves about playing the saxophone is being able to reach into someone's soul and touch their life in a special way.

Skip has performed at a wide range of venues from the Capital Jazz cruise, Kennedy Center to various international arenas and even Carnegie Hall (Live recording with The Winans)! Skip has enhanced the sounds of notable artists such as: Luther Vandross, Toni Braxton, Phyllis Hyman, KC of Jodeci, Elle Varner, Avery Sunshine, Jennifer Holliday, Keith Washington, George Duke, Chuck Brown, Will Downing, Earl Klugh, Phil Perry, Eric Benet, Joe, Lelah Hathaway, Alex Bugnon, Chante Moore, Chrisette Michele, Raheem Devaugh, Eric Roberson, Ledisi and Diane Shuur. He has performed with renowned gospel artists, The Winans, Fred Hammond, Commissioned (Number 7), Jonathan Butler, Richard Smallwood, Marvin Sapp and Ty Tribbett.

He has released three projects, all of which can be heard on various media outlets: “Eternity”, a contemporary mix of R&B and Jazz instrumental and vocals. “The Anointing” is a collection of standard gospel hymns, and “Do You Hear What I Hear”, an ensemble of his favorite Christmas songs. Fans attending Skip’s performances characterized his style as “soulful, magnetic and captivating”. His original music and unique renditions make it impossible to stay in your seat.

Skip earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff (UAPB); where he studied Business Administration and Music. Look for new music from Skip in the coming months!
