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) in film/video/media production. he also enjoys occasional jaunts into theatre, both as an actor, and behind the scenes.
he speaks his mind through his thought-provoking journal entries, which are interspersed with poetry, and of course, his music. trance’s contemplative approach is in a conscious, truth-seeking, spiritual genre, using elements of philosophy, esoteric ideas, and self-awareness to further both personal and interpersonal growth and transformation.
daring, openness, authenticity and vulnerability… these are the 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 older. throughout his formative years, tb was focused primarily on keyboard instruments, and drums, then dabbling with woodwind instruments, and finally, finding his voice. later, he added guitars into the repertoire.
by his mid-teens, trance had begun composition of original songs and arrangements. as with most artists, the music and lyrics serve as avenues of expression, providing an outlet to share thoughts on love, pain, society, philosophy, consciousness, and spirituality.
his first major project 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.
