I grew up exposed to various musical genres at a young age, but Rock and Roll is at the forefront. My love for music led me to play the drums; I have played ever since, and drums are my passion. I draw inspiration from artists like Kiss, Rush, Deep Purple, Rainbow, Yes, Judas Priest, Peter Gabriel, Seal, Elton John, Kate Bush, Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, and even Mozart. The list goes on and on.
My drumming reflects my life experiences, emotions, and inspiration from the song. I experiment with different styles, sounds, microphones, and gear for drum recording projects. I let my intuition guide me when it comes to songwriting and recording. The best music comes from the heart. Capturing the best tracks for the song is my goal.
I've worked on so many unique projects over the years. Here are a few of the artists I have worked for in the studio and live:
Ian Paice - Deep Purple
Bob Ezrin - Alice Cooper - Larry Mullen Jr.
Howard Willing - Smashing Pumpkins - Cheap Trick
John McBride - Martina McBride
Accept - Michael Wagener
I love performing live and thrive on the energy of the audience. I have played in various venues, from small clubs to large concert halls. Some of the artists I've been able to perform and record with are Simmonz, Tom Keifer, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley, The Reverend Horton Heat, Petra, The Legendary Shack Shakers, Prog Rock Orchestra, and Black Oak Arkansas, to name a few.
Here are some tracks I've played on. Check it out.
