ABOUT

Hey! I'm Ty, I'm a 24-year-old drummer from the southwest Chicago suburbs. I am currently the full-time drummer of touring hard rock band Romantic Rebel. I've been playing drums for 15 years, in professional bands for 9 of those years, and in that time, I've traveled to many different states, played shows ranging from the smallest of bar gigs to the largest of festivals, recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K and shared the stage with the likes of ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Godsmack, Shinedown, Buckcherry and Killswitch Engage just to name a few!

Though I am not currently seeking a band, I am very interested in staying busy with session work, recording, songwriting and collaborations...if you are interested in a solid backbeat for your tracks, or are interested in collaborating on some fresh tunes, shoot me a message! :)
