NEW DRUM SOLO RELEASED!

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

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 :-)

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::
