GHOST NOTE - ghost-note.bandcamp.com
This is one serious act to watch in coming years. They’re taking the best of today’s modern sounds, genres and technology, experience in playing with the majors, and blending them with the masterful musicianship of jazz. It’s no surprise they are employed by some of the worlds best. Together, these musicians fuse worlds of percussion with neck breaking and booty shaking rhythms, creating an explosive pulse and a night of energetic, unforgettable musical madness.
Robert Sput Searight is the most accomplished of the group. 6 time Grammy Award recipient, the last two for his work on Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly”, and was voted in the Top 10 Living Jazz Drummers today by Drummerworld Magazine. Artists like Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake, P Diddy, Timberland, Myron Butler, and Kirk Franklin employ Searight’s talents regularly.
