Saturn is an Award-winning Out and Proud music artist who has been writing, producing and performing his own original style of alternative urban pop since 2003. It started when Saturn was five: if you awoke early enough on a Sunday morning, you'd catch him on the front porch, his tiny feet buried in his grandmother's high heels, her Sunday hat falling lopsided on his head, belting out his favorite gospel hymns at the top of his lungs. Fast forward twenty years... He's lost the heels and the hat, but he's still singing his heart out ... though maybe not quite like Mahalia Jackson…
The best way to describe Saturn's delicious sound is to "Lightly fold Prince with Depeche Mode, add a couple of dashes of Bowie and sprinkle around the edges with gay hip hop and a bit of sass!" It's mmmm mmm good!
Renowned award – winning musician and editor Robert Urban once said of Saturn, "To experience this handsome rising star croon,rap, dance, vogue, charm and effervesce his way through a live concert is to witness perhaps the hardest-working gay man in show biz."
In 2013, Saturn released his 5th album "Dance and Make Love". The video for the Lead Single "Top of the World" won the RightOutTV Award for Best Electronic/Dance/HipHop/R&B Video of the Year and was named one of the Top Ten Videos of 2013 by the Examiner. His second video release from the album "Don't Come In" also made the Examiner's year end list of "30 Best Songs You Haven't Heard".
His 2010 release "Plastic/Box" heralded the song "Oblivion", whose video was also nominated for a RightOutTV Award.
A performance highlight for Saturn was opening for RuPaul at Baltimore Gay Pride. In addition to performing at a number of Gay Pride events across the country, Saturn has performed at nightclubs, showcases and other events on both coasts.
Saturn has gained rotation on an evergrowing list of stations, including Sirius OUTQ, WCH Radio, Stonewall Society and KPFT 90.1 FM, Houston TX and his song "Saint" was voted by listeners as one of the top OUT songs of 2005 on Sirius OutQ. Along with being featured prominently on the internationally syndicated radio show "This Way Out", WCH Radio called Saturn one of its "top 25 independent artists.
Saturn's 2002 debut album, "The Virgin Poet," received enthusiastic praise for its "highly theatrical" and "emotionally raw" content, but Saturn turned up the heat in 2005 with "Deviant." Baltimore Gay Life said of "Deviant", "...his blunt lyrical seduction is as refreshing as the raw yet refined production of this release [that] oozes with raw sexual energy and rhythms that are dark and hypnotic." Mark Lush of MidwestBands wrote of "Deviant", " It has more artistic merit than 90% of the music you will hear this year..."
