Jemez Mountain Hawkz's D. Lee Waggoner Unplugs For PBS
The group, featuring D. Lee Waggoner (Scared of Chaka), Dave Hernandez (The Shins), guitarist Ian Moore, Drew Church (Little Cuts), and Steven Barci (Chasers), release the new single "California Bound" recently.
Following the release, D. Lee performed a live acoustic version of the song on KCET's Los Angeles-based television show ArtBound.
KCET invited D. Lee to close one of the latest episodes of ArtBound, the station's arts and culture program that explores the diverse artistic landscapes of Southern and Central California.
In ArtBound's third episode, they invited D. Lee to close the show with a beautiful black and white solo performance, filmed in the style of William Shatner's famed live rendition of "Rocket Man."
D. Lee describes the song as being about, "leaving the comfort and confines of your home town, and following your dreams even if it means leaving everyone and everything you know behind," which reflects his own personal journey of venturing out to LA to pursue his music career.
