All the members of TRANSCENDENCE have been keeping themselves busy while patiently waiting the release of the group’s new CDs. There are three now rumored to be in line to come out this year – including a new rarities and unreleased collection. The band’s drummer Bill Sommer trekked off to the Big Island of Hawaii to voluntour on an organic farm for a month, while singer Ed Hale has been jetting around the globe playing goodwill ambassador and finishing a new book. Bassist Roger Houdaille released his first solo album Ginger Baby under the name Father Bloopy, and guitarist Fernando Perdomo has been burning the candle at both ends musically lending his hands and ears to several projects.
He recently completed composing music for a French short film entitled “Gri-Gri” along with Marc Charioud, and Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Jorge Moreno. The film is the acting debut of superstar rapper Diams. Fernando co wrote and played Guitar, Bass, Moog, and Drums on the theme song “Gang Star”.
Perdomo is also currently producing the English language debut of Moreno — tentatively titled “The Great Tribulation”
Broadway’s Cry Baby star James Snyder’s debut album “L. A. Curse” is out on Lion’s Gate records. Perdomo also lent his talents to this project – playing lead guitar and bass, and arranging the album’s horn parts, and choir parts.
