E.J. Strickland & Transient Beings Residency
"We are all Transient Beings.  As far as we know, all beings on this earth have a temporary existence on this planet in our present form.  This common fact unites us all, because it is just one of the many things we all share.  Thus, we're all together in that sense."

When drummer E.J. Strickland founded the electric group Transient Beings in 2015, it was his intent to unite everyone through the music in that same sense.  This group's sound is one that can be appreciated by all.  This music has uplifting & insightful lyrics that speak to the human condition.  Jazz, Afrobeat, Hip Hop, Funk, Fusion, etc.  You'll hear it all in this music!

Part of what gives this group it's unique sound is it's instrumentation.  There are vocals that often times have effects throughout.  There are 2 guitars which play different but equal roles in the group:  one may play 2nd line harmony or counter melodies while the other plays more of a rhythmic or atmospheric role.  There's an electric bass always providing a funky foundation and movement.  And, finally the drums which provide a series of grooves without losing interaction with a jazz sensibility.

Personnel:  E.J. Strickland - drums, Imani Uzuri - guest vocals, Nir Felder - guitar, Tom Guarna - guitar, & Rashaan Carter - bass.
