SnaRe-Uh’s BLoG

I am a drummer. I teach, I tour, I record, I work.

Music is my life :-)

In January 2013, I performed a drum solo for a music documentary called “Indiependance”. I finally dug up the old track and I am happy to release the audio of the solo I wrote that day. Yay double bass! Just press play :-) (Engineered by Bret Phillips)

NEW DRUM SOLO RELEASED!

October 24, 2014

It has been entirely too long, but I finally have a new drum solo to add to internet-land!

This snippet of a solo is from my first clinic this year at New School of Music in Buford, GA. On this lovely day in March 2014, I gave a talk about my experience in the music industry for the past 10 years, had a long Q & A session, performed two solos, and had one drum off with the man who taught me how to play drums, Mr. Joey Baggett. It was such a magical day, I am still honored that my drum instructor asked me to do it, looking forward to doing another one.

Smiles!

End of Summer Photo Shoot

October 1, 2014

It was about time to take some new photos and I couldn’t have thought of a better location than my studio. My sanctuary. The place where I create oodles of music and teach a plethora of students how to play drums. I love this place.

Thanks to Photographer Nick Bach and Costume Designer Vanessa Marie for helping me look fly in my studio a.k.a heaven :-)

Its a little blurry but got a pic with Aaron Spears, this was right before I performed a solo in front of him, he’s super cool::

My last blurry pic I promise! This is me hanging out with Brent Hinds from Mastodon and film director Jimmy Hayward. We were at the Hilton After Party taking selfies, what a fun night::
image

Danny Carey himself! I got an autograph from him and Daru Jones, they were both so awesome, cant wait to hang out with them again!::
image

Another amazing drummer named Danny! This is Danny Walker from Intronaut, they are so sick and he is too::
image

My first pic at NAMM was with none other than Juan Alderete, bassist for the Mars Volta. Man oh man they are a huge influence on me, was great to chat with him::
