ABOUT

My name is Steve and I've been drumming for about 12 years now. I spent some time on guitar, bass, violin, and piano before hand, but have been dedicated to drums ever since I picked up the sticks. I'd be willing to learn songs and work in an existing band or start one up from scratch. I have a good amount of experience recording, having played in multiple studios over the years. I've played in many different types of bands (original,cover,tribute) and have worked with some really talented people, including Stuart Sullivan (Eng/Producer-Sublime, Meat Puppets, Jimmy Vaughn) and Producer David Castell (Blue October, Toadies, Deep Blue Something). I love playing all types of music, but if I had to choose favorites I would say thrash and nu-metal styles. I love stuff with a bounce to it that also makes you want to headbang and dance.

Influences

Well let's see, some of my drumming influences are Ray Luzier, Brann Dailor, Sean Kinney, Eric Kretz, John Bonham, Abe Cunningham, Martin Lopez, Chris Adler, and Gavin Harrison to name a few. My musical influence spans many different bands and styles. Some of my favorite bands are Mastodon, Clutch, Korn, Pink Floyd, Scar Symmetry, Alice in Chains, Lamb of God, Opeth, Stone Temple Pilots, Static X, Rammstein, Deftones, Porcupine Tree, A Perfect Circle, The Sword and Rob Zombie. I also listen to jazz, classical/score, old country, rap/hip-hop, J-pop/rock, folk, electronic... I mean I could go on. Basically, if it's good I'll jam it, but I lean towards rock and metal.
