Transmute and Rockwood Performances
"I CAN RESIST EVERYTHING EXCEPT TEMPTATION." - OSCAR WILDE
Did you get my lil April Fool's joke yesterday with my air guitar lessons offer? xx
There was a lot of rehearsing and performing this weekend!
I performed my new song Shoulda Never Letcha for the first time and also performed my song Running. I'm sad that these 8 weeks are over, but there will be more Transmuting to come.
>>> WATCH MY FINAL TRANSMUTE PERFORMANCE HERE
My buddy Jules Jennsen (on the drums in these pics) from Transmute invited me to join Jackson Whalan and his live band at Rockwood on Saturday night.
Jackson is an incredible lyricist, rapper, producer, and artist.
The musicians were TOP. I'm honored to have joined them. It was super chill and fun, too. I'm a big fan.
Check out Jackson Whalan at his site jacksonwhalan.com and on Spotify.
