Memories of Antoine Knight
A 1981 graduate,Antoine Knight wants you to know one thing, he’s not just trying to talk the talk - he can really Walk Da Walk! That’s the soul inspiration and concept behind the Atlanta based saxophonist’s highly anticipated follow-up to his 2004 debut project In The Red. A deeply spiritual person and musician, Knight creates an inspiring yet melodic chronicle that serves as an engaging testimony of where he has been in his life. Born and raised in Pensacola, Florida, Antoine Knight began playing sax at age 11 and enjoyed a childhood filled with incredible sounds—starting with an 8-track tape his aunt had of Jr. Walker and continuing on through his dad’s John Coltrane and Cannonball Adderley albums. While Knight played sax throughout his school years, it was at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church where he performed with Jennifer Holiday, and Yolanda Adams. Since then he has shared the stage and played with Angela Bofill, Vesta, Miki Howard, Najee, Ronnie Laws, Kim Waters, and Marcus Johnson. Upon entering college at Florida A&M University he began focusing on two other disciplines; majoring in engineering and minoring in military science. Knight worked as an engineer and is presently a Major in the U.S. Army Reserves, but his love for music brought him back to performing. Knight is a versatile performer and musician, doing hundreds of private parties, weddings and corporate events. He also played in the house band for the Atlanta Falcons football team in the early 2000s, performing regularly for hundreds of VIP's.Antoine was Atlanta’s first independent artist to get picked up by Radio One Broadcasting, on the station formerly known as WJZZ 107.5 FM.Since the release of his 2nd album"Walk Da Walk, Antoine reieved the Letter of Proclamation from the Mayor in his hometown of Pensacola,FL.
