ABOUT

Hey! My names Joel, I just moved to LA from Nashville and I’m here to work!

I’ve played most types of music at a pretty high level, and pride myself on being a true pro. I’ll show up on time, know the material, and make it so you don’t have to worry about the drums at all.
I’m fast at writing and reading charts, which helps me be able to cover large song reps in a short time (40 songs in a couple days was pretty standard fare in Nashville, record was 70 overnight)

Influences

Grew up loving the James Brown drummers, Jabo and Clyde. Then it’s a lot of the modern pop and gospel monsters like Aaron Spears, Tony Royster Jr, Devon Taylor. Got a lot of country influence from the current Nashville greats, like Ben Sesar, Rich Redmond, etc. My rock guys were Tommy Lee and Steveo Jocz.
