LUKE WEATHINGTON - VIDEO GAME ALLIANCE
One of the great pleasures (and big learning experiences) I’ve had during pandemic has been recording drums from home on some very cool projects. Luke is an amazing saxophonist, musician, and educator who I’ve had to pleasure of touring and playing in groups with for over 8 years now. Check out his newest project featuring Tim Aucoin (bass), Patrick Arthur (guitar), John Boulware (fiddle), and myself on drums.

When My Minds Quiet
I’m incredibly excited to announce the release of my first single as leader! “When My Mind’s Quiet” looks inward and acknowledges that human’s best performances, clearest thoughts, and most productive moments occur when we can quiet our minds of all other thoughts & distractions and allow instinct and flow to happen.
I’m joined on this song by amazing musicians and friends:
Jason Collier - Trumpet, Luke Weathington - Alto Sax, William Hollifield - Tenor Sax, Brandon Boone - Bass, Jonathan Mills - Vibraphone and Drums.
