Peak Records Signs Guitarist Marc Antoine

Smooth jazz guitarist Marc Antoine has signed a contract with Peak Records and is scheduled to release his first CD with the label in July. Peak was co-founded by Russ Freeman of the Rippingtons and recently signed another smooth jazz superstar, Paul Brown, who releases a new CD titled White Sand next month.

As a solo artist, Antoine has released eight recordings, including his last two with Rendezvous Entertainment, co-founded by saxophonist Dave Koz. His many smooth jazz singles have included four No. 1 Smooth Jazz hits: “Mediterraneo,” "On the Strip," "Mas Que Nada" and "Sunland."

Peak is also home to David Benoit, Eric Marienthal, the Braxton Brothers, Lee Ritenour, Paul Taylor, Norman Brown and Will Downing.
