Life as a side musician, hired gun, live band artist, or whatever fancy name you want to put on it for the day can be equally rewarding and frustrating all at the same time. Sometimes we sit and wait and sometimes we are going non-stop! I am currently playing with an amazing artist, Lindsey Saunders, and have played with some amazing artists in the past. Looking back at this: 2009 through 2010 while playing with Interscope artist Matt Morris, we performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The CBS Early Show, The David Letterman Show, and The George Lopez Show.
Meshell Ndegeocello, Tim Commerford, Billy Sheehan, Aston ‘family man’ Barrett, James Jamerson, Flea, Christian McBride, Cliff Burton, Pino Palladino, David Ellefson, Victor Wooten, and Marcus Miller!
Reflecting back today in regards to the church and worship and was reminded that I have been able to play bass with some of the cutting edge leaders in worship over the past years. I have performed with Darrel Evans, Integirty Music artists Rita Springer and Daniel Bashta, Kim Walker, Burn 24/7 artist Sean Feucht, Josh Garrels, Come&Live artist Loud Harp, Ellary, Todd Warren, Resound Worship artist Aaron Strumpel, and others.
To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable.Ludwig Van Beethoven
There is so much freedom in actually knowing your material frontwards and backwards that you are performing live. Let’s rawk!
April 12th w/ Lindsey Saunders Band @ Twisted Pine in Boulder, CO @ 7:00 pm.
