I started playing drums when I was 14 right as I was getting into Metal and Hardcore. Drummers like Vinnie Paul and Joey Jordison were what really made me want to explore heavier/faster drumming styles. I spent countless hours trying to emulate those styles and carve my own groove from it.
In Hearts Wake
Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceTouring and becoming friends with people you look up to like Matt Greiner and having him tell you night after night you killed it, never gets old haha
What Drives Your Creativity?My creativity is definitely influenced by what I'm currently listen to and those drummers, its always inspiring to find a spark in others creativity.
Why do you choose Vic Firth?I play 3A's and have recommended these to everyone who asks what I use. well balanced, comfortable to play and they are really durable.
