ABOUT

Hey, I'm Joe, I've been playing drums since I was 12, and learned Piano, Bass, and Guitar shortly after. Drums are my main instrument, and the instrument I have the most experience performing with.

You can hear me play drums on We Are The Empty's Acoustic Re-imagined songs, "Green Roses", "Runaway", and "Autumn Romance". (On Spotify, be, Etc) We recorded those tracks in Fat Cat Recording Studio in Sacramento, CA.

You can hear my original music by searching my name on Spotify, be, etc. My songs "I Know You Don't" and "Insecurities" are a good place to start. These songs are part of an Electronic Alternative project I've been doing.

Here's me playing guitar. It's from a challenge where I wrote my own riffs to a specific drum track:

I am a big rock, metal, emo, and prog fan and really love music theory. I am a fan of Jazz and have a lot of experience playing and performing jazz drums, but I'm definitely more of a rock/metal drummer. I can read jazz sheets.

I'm not much of a constant-blast-beats kinda guy, definitely prefer more groove. I'm also not a double bass master, but I can hold my own for the most part.

I played in my high school jazz band and marching/concert band all four years and played many jazz festivals during.
