MULTi-iNSTRUMENTALiST JASON HEMMENS
AND HiS DEBUT CD WELCOME TO REALiTY
For the past several years, multi-instrumentalist
HEMMENS has been to go-to-guy for any artists seeking back up on stage
the studio. The likes of STEVIE WONDER, TEVIN CAMPBELL, members of GUNS
ROSES and POISON have benefited from his dexterity on the saxophone,
piano, and bass. Despite having studied music at the University of New
music always came naturally to HEMMENS. “The first instrument that I
learned to play was the harmonica.” says HEMMONS “I picked that up when
fifteen. I was home on vacation form school and this harmonica was
around. It was actually my brother’s harmonica and I just picked it up
started fooling around with it. It was pretty much an instant
could play pretty easily and form that moment on, I never looked back.
later, I picked up the saxophone and from there, the keyboards and
that I could get my hands on.”
