I don’t know if I’ve formally shared this with you guys or not, but I’ve recently started playing with Grammy nominated artist Anthony David. The ride has been incredible so far and some major things are coming through the pipes very soon! Until I can share more with you, check out this video of our performance in Hunnington Beach at the BB Jazz Festival back in September this year.

I forgot about this video! Here’s me and the Sadowsky backing up Yahzarah a.k.a. Purple St. James in Atlanta at the Apache Cafe in 2009! We had a lot of fun that night!!
I just got back from the electrical atmosphere that is NAMM! Words just cannot explain how incredible the experience really is! A whole convention center full of the world’s brightest and best musicians and manufacturers all there to hang! I already plan to go back next year! New friends were made, a couple of musicians lost respect (more on that in a later post), and I learned about a side of this music business that I really didn’t pay much attention to – the merchant side of it all. At NAMM everyone displays the best that they have to offer in hopes to woo new customers and raise the bar on instrument manufacturing. All of the craftsmen present their take on age old instruments and the attendees have the opportunity to try everything out! Great Experience!!
It’s nothing to walk down any isle and hear incredible musicianship. Here’s a video of my bro’s Jermaine Hall and Oliver McEwan in an impromptu jam session at the TC Electronics booth. They’re jamming to MJ’s Human Nature. Enjoy!
I recently did a gig in Atlanta with the Brien Andrews Band and during the set we performed “The Chicken”. He gave me a solo. The vid may be a little weird, but check it out!!
My homie Jahah is a Hip Hop / R&B artist based in Atlanta, GA. A little while back I had the opportunity to organize some of my musical buddies and put together a band for a show supporting the release of his new project entitled “Nostalgia”. The band featured Carlos Simon on keys, Larry Newson on drums, Rod Harris on guitar and yours truly on bass. Check out the footage from the live show!
I also had the opportunity to play bass on and co-produce a few tracks on the album! In Jahah’s own words:
“For those of you who miss the “golden era ” of hip hop (Biggie, 2 Pac, Nasty Nas, Jay-Z, A Tribe Called Quest, KRS-One, Gang Starr, Black Moon, Wu-Tang etc) my project Nostalgia RED is for you!”
The album is available on iTunes and Amazon or you can download it for free!
I had a really cool gig a couple of weeks ago! I traveled to Warsaw, Poland to perform with Angie Stone in a concert series celebrating Poland’s new Presidency of the European Union. This is an incredible honor that rotates throughout members of the EU every six months. An estimated 20,000 people were in attendance and the concert was broadcast live throughout the country!
