Jeff Stevens, my childhood friend from my Colorado days has been with his band Testing Tomorrow with Jesse Dean for the last 4 years and have become very popular in the L.A music scene. Recently they added 2 new members to the mix GroM who is a very powerful drummer with some awesome accolades under his belt and experience touring in Europe and the US extensively. Andrew is the new bassist and moved from Hawaii to work with the band, both these guys are characters and have very awesome and unique styles. They've recently made some big moves and are recording another awesome album - Jeff plays the scratch tracks for me anytime I'm up in L.A and need some motivation. Jeff and I played in a band in high school together so it's always a treat to hear their new stuff and talk about what I love about his music. Yes, Im guilty of being a has-been drummer. What a week! 4 shoots this week and 3 more next week. It's a very busy pace, but I'm really taking a lot in and learning from these great experiences. As always, I've got Ryan Loco with me. He put together this awesome video of the action. Jeff Stevens guest edited the photos and I shot 'em.
Enjoy and don't forget to check out TESTING TOMORROW now.
