“It’s about helping the younger generation be better than you were.”
Wow, what a powerful statement by Robert Sput Searight, drummer for Snarky Puppy and Ghost-Note and 6x Grammy winning producer, musician, composer and arranger! Robert has his own label RSVP (Robert Searight Virtuoso Project) and has worked with artists like Kirk Franklin, Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg, Celine Dion, Timbaland and Eryka Badu. Not only is Robert an exceptional drummer and keys player, but he is also a very humble man of God! We had the opportunity to sit down with Robert when he was on tour in Holland in November 2016. We had a wonderful conservation about growing up with music, his relationship with God, the importance of community and relationships, having mentors, tuning drums, playing with Nate Werth in Snarky Puppy and working with Bishop T.D. Jakes. His best advice: “Utilize the opportunities to practice when you’re younger and learn more about your business!”
Amazing interview with Scott Davis about his playing on Kim Walker’s album ‘Wild Heart’.
‘There’s a lot of fear and anxiety in our society right now, people are afraid of this virus, they’re afraid they are gonna loose their job or not, what’s gonna happen to them, all these things, and I think some of the lyrics of this record ‘Wild Heart’ really speak to that and how God is good and He’s gonna take of you and that we can trust Him.’
