Life after transplant is good for ex-painter turned musician

Prince White played bass last night with his band, Revolution Heroes, for over three hours. Today, at a coffee shop, like many artists after a performance, he can easily critique the high and low points of the show. But it doesn’t last long. He can’t help but smile. “We sounded good,” he said. “That’s my element. It’s where I’m meant to be.” Bands play in bars and clubs every night. But for White, music is his purpose.

By KatieKohler Dr. Win Somboonsong, president of Win Signature Restaurants which includes Azie in Media and Teikoku in Newtown Square, prefers simple things like the old-fashioned, downtown charm of State Street in Media or the basic sushi rolls like tuna, yellow tail, or scallion.
