ABOUT

***
sometimes I drum on IG: forrestflams
***

I'm a professional drummer and software engineer originally from Dallas, TX. I've been writing, recording, and performing with bands, musicals, and drumlines for 10+ years. My life dream and goal is to create music that is inspiring and meaningful, at least to me and hopefully to others as well.

I'm looking for people with a wide range of musical influences (if you don't want to sound like your favorite band/genre, you must broaden your musical horizons) that love to experiment with sound and rhythm (rapid iteration of ideas; quantity breeds quality), are masters of their craft (but still humble!), and are artistically fearless (not trying to be anyone else). My favorite music to play is both technically (fun for musicians) and musically (dynamic and expressive; fun for anyone) interesting.

I have a rehearsal room at TK Productions. hmu if you're looking for a drummer, want to jam on some ideas, or just want to grab some coffee/beer and talk music!
