ABOUT

*Returning to the Tampa Bay area in spring 2017.*

Experienced, reliable drummer with steady timing, slightly above-average chops and solid pocket grooves. Knowledge and experience playing blues, country, funk, gospel, jazz, R&B, hip hop, rock and soul. Also, have done orchestra work on snare and timpani. I read, both drums and scales. Knowledge and familiarity with the piano, and just a slight bit more experience on the flute. Learning guitar too. I'm a baritone and can sing backup, while playing drums or not. I am looking to spend time building a funk, soul, R&B and jazz band to play out a few times a month or a great worship or gospel music band to play one church or travel locally. Committed. I've been involved in music my entire life. I played for a local church every Sunday. I am a writer by training, and have deep experience in journalism, marketing and advertising, just in case those skills are needed too.
