Jammin’ With a Rock Star

Paul Hemenway was described in an Illinois Times news article as a “punk rock pastor.” Over the course of his career, he has always been dedicated to his faith, music, and service to others.

During the 1990s, he played in a the 8-piece punk rock band Black Happy. The group enjoyed reunion tours in both 2010 and 2018.

I was thrilled to have a jam session and record with this phenomenal rock star. I love it when musicians branch outside their normal genres (in my case, classical) and experience other types of music.

Check out my interview with Paul Hemenway, lead singer and guitarist of Black Happy, where he shares his thoughts with people interested in pursuing music as a career.
