Seattle entrepreneur launches award-winning music-accessory business, industry taking note

A mix of clever innovation, determination and DIY entrepreneurship led musician Rulon Brown to solve a sticky problem that had dogged him since he picked up the saxophone in elementary school. Brown, a saxophonist and music teacher, launched Key Leaves from his Issaquah garage in January 2018. The startup’s most notable product is a little leaf-shaped silicone device that presents a unique solution for sticky saxophone pads, a common and costly mechanical problem for players. Placed between the keys, the gadget protects the instrument from water damage by leaving the keys open to air dry after play sessions. Only thirteen months after launching, Key Leaves won two prestigious awards at the 2019 National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show in Anaheim, Calif.: Best in Show and Best Instrument Care Tool. The awards are among the highest honors for music instrument accessory makers at NAMM, the music product industry’s largest gathering.
