This week Scott is joined by Lee Jennings of The Funeral Portrait. The Funeral Portrait is a four-piece emotional rock outfit hailing from Atlanta, Georgia. Consisting of Lee Jennings (Vocals), Cody Weissinger (Guitar), Robert Weston (Bass), and Homer (Drums). The band blends elements of rock and roll, punk rock, and theater all under a blanket of pop sensibility as they paint their stories of love, loss, anger, and grief onto a canvas of skillfully crafted songs.
TFP hit the ground running in late 2014 and since then has shared the stage with: Shinedown, Underoath, Issues, Starset, PVRIS, From Ashes To New, August Burns Red, 10 Years, Palisades, Islander and many more!
