ABOUT

I'm an experienced gigging and song writing drummer with a quality rig and with many studio hours and live shows under my belt. I'm 29 years old. I contribute to writing originals of many different genres. Please, no cover bands.

Gigging, songwriting, and recording credits include:

Percussion, drums, and backing vocals for -
GOOD TRY, THE GYPSY MULLET, SUNDAY GREEN, FINDING VISTA, FREDMAN FRED, CONQUER SERENITY, LESS THAN THE LEAST MINISTRIES, SHADYCREST BAPTIST CHURCH

I own a rehearsal space to be used on demand if needed.

My style and skill set are not "chop-heavy". I do play with a wide variety of unique fills and accents. I'm a prolific "song drummer" with the ability to play very deep in the pocket with a very "fat" and intentional groove. I'll add many elements of musicality to your sound with a masterful use of dynamics and feel, along with impeccable timing.
