I'm Suss. I've been behind the kit for 10 years. Just moved to Studio City from New York. Looking to join or form a band. I did three records with two bands in the last few years (see above). I've also filled in on live gigs for two artists in the last 6 months. I've played north of a hundred gigs, but I really couldn't tell you how many. I'm not a touring artist and I have no desire to be. I'd like to join or form a band that plays out in LA, wants to do a record, and has a decent feel for their brand and presence on stage.

I'm a moderately advanced player, but I have plenty of obvious limitations. I try to write for my skill-level and for the music.

I'm happy to sit in and cover live shows while your drummer is unavailable, or just do live drums for your electronic or pop project if you're working with a producer instead of a band.

I work Monday - Friday, usually until 6:30PM. My ideal project would be with a band that wants to spend a lot of time crafting a sound for a record and gigging once or twice a month with like-minded bands that we can develop a relationship with.

Anyway. Hit me up on IG! Don't worry about genre right away. I'm more interested in where your head is at. I'll be honest if I think we're compatible.
