My Story

SF Bay Area-based saxophonist, producer and composer Lincoln Adler can be heard on tracks by Katy Perry, Killy, Funkadelic, Gift of Gab, Zion I, Jeff Goldblum, K. D. Lang, The Jets and Olivia Newton John as well as his own band, Times 4. As a producer/songwriter he’s had songs on the charts in the U.S. and U.K., and as a composer, his music is included in movies, national TV commercials, industrials and on numerous albums.

His boutique production companies – Groove Tonic Media and Executive Branch Productions – help talented artists realize their creative artistic recording potential. He’s profoundly interested in all aspects of creativity, in what makes us tick as both individuals and as artists, and in how to lead a life of success and happiness in the modern world.

“Characterized by cohesive improvisation and filled with the spirit of hip-hop rhythms and a groove-based approach, the music surges with a mesmerizing power and charms accordingly.”

Featured Music

I’m celebrating the release of a new album – Tabula Rasa. It’s dedicated to the idea of starting fresh, a new beginning, with a blank slate. And it features the single, Alchemy, about how getting the mix of ingredients just right ends up creating a whole that’s so much more than the sum of the parts. You can hear the whole album below, or check it out on your favorite streaming service. I hope you enjoy it!
