Dr. Blackman put the “O” back into O-riginality, when he took his first breath and found how rejection, became the cornerstone of his towering life experience. Having cut his eye teeth in the outback of Australia, he woke up one day floating in the waters of Lagos Dos Bogas, finding romance in an undiscovered rain forest, while looking into the majestic peaks of the Sangre De Cristo mountains. He recorded his first album at Hyde Street Studio, San Francisco, wandering through His unhewned masterpiece “Master of Wood”.
“Xmas Town” harkins remotely to Gershwin, but threads the needle with a haunting, satirical meandering with a acoustic edge and a hip hop fusion sound. This is Dr. Blackman’s signature sound; music to heal the heart and soul.
