I haven’t recorded anything with Johnny Griffin yet, but I’ve gotten the chance to sing back-up vocals for him in concert.
I met him because we both play music for yoga classes at Studio Bliss in Montreal. The boy can sing. It’s worth a listen. Here’s his latest EP released – John Jacob Magistery – Narcissism Unto Loneliness.
I ended up opening for his album release with my vocal loops. I had three women in costume creating an interpretive dance in front of me and two men on stage on either side of me. He was holding a lamp and meditating with it and Johnny was sitting in a chair meditating and getting into the zone for his show. They were both holding space for the music and dance. It was beautifully bizarre. I will try to track down the video for you.
