8 Bermudian Artists to Watch

Pink Sand Entertainment 

 

The man can play his behind of! I’ve heard him a few times, alone playing his alto sax and with his band, and I’ve enjoyed it every time. He is able to move so easily between gospel and pop music, not once losing the integrity of the piece or of his performance. He’s a pleasure to watch perform and to listen to.

If you think your Christian faith might hold you back from a successful career in entertainment, think again. Saxophonist Gianluca Gibbons said God has opened more doors for him in Los Angeles than he ever thought possible. “I’ve been able to accomplish more than I could have ever imagined in my four-and-a-half years here in California,” the 24-year-old said. “Since last September alone I have played about six shows in Hollywood, collaborated with multiple talented industry artists and had a meeting at a local recording company." 

 

“The most recent door God opened was this past week. Theo Wanne Mouthpieces decided they wanted to endorse me. The company represents some of the best saxophone players in the industry, including Marcus Anderson and Adrian Crutchfield, both of whom have toured with Prince and living jazz legend Gerald Albright. The opportunity really is a dream come true.
