ABOUT

I started playing the drums about 8 years ago and for nearly 6 years I've played daily. I also played the guitar for 6 years or more but not really interested in playing daily. I love the drums. I just moved to St Louis from Austin TX. I played with a couple bands and wanting to pickup with some new mates here. I can write song lyrics as well. I would like to get serious. I practice a couple hours a day. I've been getting into Funk and linear drumming.
