ABOUT

I have been playing the drums for 12 years, and the guitar for 10 years. Play guitar a couple hours every day, drums a couple hours a week. I am confident in not having to play drums everyday, because in my 12 years of playing, i have played with 6 separate bands, and have hours upon hours of experience. Experience in both live concerts, and studio. I play mostly rock styles, but I'm fluent in all things from funk to blues to pop.

Influences

As far as influences are concerned, I pull from a lot of different styles. When it comes to the drums some direct influences would be Dave Grohl and Chad smith(Chili Peps). I am very comfortable playing syncopated beats as well, most commonly displayed in Carter Beauford's playing (Dave Mtthews).

My guitar playing is mostly rhythm, seeing as how I'm a drummer first, I play very close to the rhythm of the drums. My writing style so far has closely sounded like a style mixed between Silver Sun Pickups and a Radiohead/Muse mixture. This is what I've recently been playing, but as I said before, it can always be adapted and changed.

EQUIPMENT

I have a Roland TD-10 electronic drumset, and a collection of 4 or 5 guitars. I don't have much in regards to Amos, just a few 30-50 watt amps, but I do have a 12 channel mixer and a few effects pedals.
