trance blackman is a multi-faceted singer, songwriter and producer. he also loves photography, and works creatively (actor, camera, editor, sound, score) in film/video/tv production, with occasional jaunts into theatre, both as an actor, and even building and painting stage sets…
speaking his mind through his musings, observations, and music, trance’s focus is a humanist, spiritual genre, blending elements of philosophy, politics, ‘new thought‘, and awareness. the motivation, intention, and stuff that makes it all go is love.

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, humanism, philosophy 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, as his genre-bending methods need room to be expressed.
the logo is many things in one. it has become more than i thought it was originally. basically, it’s a cross (a symbol of many meanings, but primarily the intersect between the human and the divine/non-physical) melded with half a heart. this, to me symbolizes our connection to Source, the Universe, God, Love or Life. furthermore, it’s the letters “T” and “B” and also combines the “plus” sign, and a “flat” note in music notation.
it’s fully a symbol that represents who i am, and strive to represent and be.
