To the people at Leeward Community College, Christian Bautista may look like an average student. However, this student doesn’t just take classes.
He’s also the drummer in the local band Talk To You Music. Inspired by local/homegrown bands such as Natural Vibrations, Fiji, and the Green, TTYM plays a soulful blend of R & B and progressive reggae music. In addition to their original songs, they put their own spin on tracks by artists such as Bruno Mars, the Kings of Leon, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Jason Mraz, and Jack Johnson.
