As his name would suggest, Langston Hughes II creates beauty. However, rather than a pen, Hughes’ instrument of choice is the saxophone. The rising star’s artistic mission is to develop a voice that has a profound spiritual and emotional impact on his listeners.

The young saxophonist, flutist, bandleader, and composer already has many impressive credits and awards to his name.

Hughes is currently studying jazz saxophone at Howard University under the tutelage of esteemed professor Charlie Young III.
