ABOUT

Drummer that cut my teeth on classic rock and 90's grunge, but have played in heavy rock, acoustic rock, and jazz/blues bands over the years. These bands focused on original music, but always worked on covers. A couple of them played mostly in coffeehouses and intimate venues, which trained me to enjoy the dynamics and play with control. I can play soft but keep the energy up or play hard without losing the tempo or groove.
Current music involvement: in my church that plays contemporary worship songs with pop, rock, jazz. R&B styles. I have done background vocals in the past, but it has been a while.

Influences

Many musical influences over time. My current playlist includes Jim Hendrix (and the Band of Gypsies), Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Soundgarden, Incubus, Foo Fighters, Gary Clark Jr., Arcade Fire, and the Black Keys.

The attached tracks are from a band I drummed for that was going for a harder Zepplin/Who sort of style. Songs are rough tracks overall (never mastered), but show my approach to harder & faster songs.
