A Fellow Creative
Trance Blackman is a singer, songwriter, composer, and producer. He loves photography. In film/TV and media production he’s been an actor, editor, writer and producer. He’s enjoyed ventures into theater, and performs as a voiceover artist.
Trance speaks his mind through thought-provoking, observational journal entries, interspersed with poetry, and of course, his music. His contemplative perspective explores and synthesizes elements of philosophy, psychology, spirituality, science, the arts, and the esoteric — with an aim to contribute to and inspire personal and collective enlightenment and transformation. He’s written over a thousand articles over the past fifteen years, though has on occasion “reset” the catalog to start afresh; artistic and creative expression, as it is with science, is ever-evolving, adapting and is never complete.
Let love lead you.
Trance Blackman has been surrounded by, influenced and immersed in all kinds of music, for all of his life.
His father, also a musician, got him started on a two-tiered Farfisa organ, which featured bass pedals that he wouldn’t be able to reach until he was several years older. Throughout his formative years, Trance focused primarily on keyboard instruments and drums, eventually finding his singing voice as a teenager. He then taught himself to play guitars, favoring a nylon-stringed Fender classical, and later fell in love with a five-string bass he’d acquired on a trip to Wales.
By his mid-teens, Trance had begun composition of original songs and arrangements, summoned through the fervent passion of countless hours of practice, exploring the sounds and rhythms of numerous models of music machines.
His first released album was Runaway, which was quickly followed up with Runaway Revisited, featuring remixed, alternate versions of the original recordings. His latest release, and 10th self-produced album, is Fleshwound.
Trance strives to create emotive, considered, meaningful music. He regularly has several album projects in development and production, exploring as fully as he can his genre-blending methods and creative ingenuity.
Music is life.
