For me at least music is almost like a religion.. undoubtedly a universal language that almost everyone can communicate with.
And some people are just meant to be drummers.

I currently work with
Yamaha Drums / Mapex Drums
Zildjian - Custom A Cymbals
Shure microphones and
All Gibraltra hardware.

Enjoy playing with high energy but at low volumes. I studied and enjoy listening to a broad realm of music so not limited to one style. can read and write drums charts, for recording in the studio while following a click track and or improvise with fills on the fly while controlling the pocket.

In my own projects I sometimes prefer working with polyrhythms and playing odd meters / time signatures sometimes working around five-stroke rolls, quintuplets and sixteenth note triplet grooves.
Some African, Latin and Rock shuffle patterns.

However most music may just require a steady pulse to be tasteful and or required for the whole of the project and at the end of the day that is the job of a accomplished musician.


Currently working with a session studio project - Level 3. Our cover setlist pictured below ): but unfortunately on hold now because of Covid restrictions.

So I am now nterested in more projects to add to a future schedule in 2021. Venturing out of my comfort zone into some more challenging music, projects, bands and or studio atmosphere.
