Band to Join.

ABOUT

I performed with the funk-alternative rock band "Driven To Clarity," (aka DTC) for three years. For a almost two years Country Rock "Chris William Band." Music is my first love. I perform at churches with a contemporary style of worship. Currently at Grace Community Church in Fulton, MD.

I welcome opportunities to perform with others when my schedule allows (live or studio).

I'm an accomplished musician, composer, and producer. I know when to play and when not to play. I enjoy and am competent with performing most popular styles including: R&B, Jazz, Rock, Country, Hip-Hop, Funk, Gospel, Contemporary Christian, EDM, Blues, Reggae, and more.

I've been playing drums all my life. Passionate about music in general, especially live performances. I enjoy all genres. I was inspired to play drums very early age. My dad must have taken me to every parade in Baltimore, MD. There was something about the marching drum section that captivated me. I also admired drummers at church...especially Bill Maxwell who use to perform with for Andre Crouch. I love jazz...especially swing, big band, straight ahead jazz...I wanted to be Buddy Rich as a kid. I cannot read, but I use to fake reading just to play in big bands in college.

Over the past year I've played a lot of the new Rock Country...I really like Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, etc.

I've been performing a lot of studio work lately. I'm experimenting with tracking drums in my house studio and it's going well.
