Lyman Jerome Alexander II in the Studio

:: “LJ”, drummer for The St. Valentinez, caught my attention immediately ::

He gets so excited, is so focused, it’s pure entertainment just listening to and watching him. His musicality is mind blowing. I had the pleasure of hanging out at Fantasy during their first recording session there thanks to Ray Obiedo’s invitation to check come hear this great band.

The St. Valentinez are a must see, live, their energy is inspiring.

At one point during the session LJ’s headphones launched into space because he was so so so intense and moving so passionately during a take. And, on many occasions he literally left ground, was airborne, while somehow managing to keep high hat and bass drum absolutely tight. I was hoping to witness some of his playful magic in the studio when we did our last shoot. Thanks LJ! Right on time!
