a fellow creative
trance blackman is a multi-faceted singer, songwriter and producer. he loves photography, and has worked creatively (actor, camera, editor, sound design, scoring, even set construction) in film/video/media production. he also enjoys occasional jaunts into theater.
he speaks his mind through his thought-provoking, observational, and often very personal journal entries, which are interspersed with poetry, and of course, his music. trance’s contemplative approach is of a conscious, truth-seeking, spiritual genre, exploring the areas of philosophy, the esoteric, mindfulness and self-awareness to further both personal as well as interpersonal growth and transformation.
courage, curiosity, authenticity and vulnerability… cornerstones of a life well explored, deeply engaged, and felt with all of who and what we are.

trance blackman has been surrounded by, influenced, and immersed in all kinds of music, all of his life.
at around 3 years of age, his father got him started on a Farfisa organ – a classic instrument, which featured bass pedals that trance wouldn’t be able to reach until he was several years older. throughout his formative years, tb was focused primarily on keyboard instruments, and drums, then dabbling with woodwind instruments, and finally, finding his singing voice. later, he added guitars into the repertoire, eventually favoring the nylon string (classical) guitar, and the 5-string bass.
by his mid-teens, trance had begun composition of original songs and arrangements. naturally, the music and lyrics serve as avenues of expression, providing an outlet to share thoughts on love, fears, hurt and healing, society, philosophy, consciousness, and spirituality.
his first self-released album was Runaway. trance strives to create strong, meaningful music. he regularly has several album projects in development and production, exploring as fully as he can his genre-blending methods and creative madness.
music is life.
