On February 26th of last year, I was blessed to be a part of my son in ministry, Elder Damien Sneed’s debut recording project Introspections LIVE, which was recorded on Friday, February 26, 2010 at Columbia University’s Miller Theatre. The double disc project is a collection of the most memorable moments of Damien’s life that have shaped his musical artistry.
Introspections LIVE features songs from his childhood, songs he heard growing up in church and also songs he composed and wrote in the broken places of my life thru music from various seasons of his development as a musician, artist and human being. The project is inspirational and is expressed in several different genres including jazz, classical and gospel. Several stellar artists and special guests came out that evening and are featured on the double disc project including: Kenneth Whalum III (saxophone) the nephew of Grammy Award winning gospel jazz instrumentalist Kirk Whalum, Ali Jackson (drums) from Wynton Marsalis’ Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Dezron Douglas (upright bass), Tekesha Russell, Charles Wesley Evans, Audrey Dubois Harris from the Juilliard School, Chenee Campbell, Chorale Le Chateau, Timiney Figueroa-Caton who is one of the Kurt Carr Singers and a long-time soloist with Bishop Hezekiah Walker, David Bratton (organ) the music director for the late Pastor Timothy Wright for over 20 years and who was nominated for song of the year at last year’s Dove Awards, Jermaine Parrish (drums) who performs with many mainstream artists including Alicia Keys, Brian Cockerham (bass) who performs with Emily King and PJ Morton, Leon Lacey (acoustic guitar), Rev. Darius Thomas, Cherub Ruth, Arcell Vickers (organ), Melonie Daniels, Anaysha Figueroa who sings with Kirk Franklin, San Franklin one of featured soloists for Walter and Edwin Hawkins, Bettina Pennon, Nikki Ross who sings with Kirk Franklin, George Huff from American Idol, The Levites (Cassondra Kellam, La Shaye Paschal, Chenee Campbell, Melaine Rochford, Tiffany Stevenson, Cherub Ruth, Darius Thomas, Linny Smith & Djore Nance) and yours truly.

Check out this quote from Karla Scott of the Vocal Spa Network in Washington, DC about the project:
Have you gotten your copy of Introspections LIVE? Jazz, classical and gospel songs are woven into a thoughtful, poignant and joyful tapestry of sound. Damien Sneed is one of the most well trained, creative, intelligent, anointed musicians I know and have had the pleasure to work with. I’m not alone- greats from Jessye Norman to Wynton Marsalis to Karen Clark-Sheard and so many more have sought him out for these very reasons.
