Blake Bartz is the kind of drummer that gives a front man a little more confidence.

The day when Fully Fullwood showed up to our show at Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach to sit in. Summer of 2019, Jah Mex, Blake Bartz, Eaux Bain, Fully Fullwood and Albert Hurtado.
I'll never forget this day. Stevie Wonder decided to sit in with the band I play keyboards for, Lesterfari and Kings Music at Simply Wholesome in L.A. Can't say it was a dream come true because I would never have been able to dream something crazy like this, especially with that crazy machine he's playing music off of here.

The studio personnel for Soul Garden Roots Version: (from left to right) Fully Fullwood on bass, Tony Chin on guitar, my self on keys and vocals, Santa Davis on drums and Rock Deadrick on percussion.
Another driving force in my life, food. I love to cook for my family and friends. #jahmexfood
On keys with Eek A Mouse in Sweden, 2003.
At Reggae Rising about 6 years ago, playing keyboards for Marcia Griffiths. She's no joke when it comes to musicians playing her songs correctly. It was a joy to work with her on this gig.
Was blessed to be a fly on the wall while Earl Chinna Smith recorded his legendary guitar leads with his band mates from Soul Syndicate Band. First time they have recorded together in a few decades.
Live at Belly UP with New Leaf
Artwalk in Laguna has a lot of things happening the first Thursday of every month. This was the first time a band has ever jammed out front of The Sound Spectrum, an independent record store in biz since the late 60's.

Tony Chin dubs you very much

Still to this day, Gentleman, reggae artist from Germany, is my favorite modern reggae artist. Thanks to my friend Justine Ketola, I got the opportunity to play keys in his music video for "Different Places"
With my mentor, Fully Fullwood.
