George Schmitz's life definitely took a turn for the interesting the fateful night in Iowa City, where singer Jesse Barnett asked George to join his band Stick To Your Guns. His try out? Tapping on a practice pad behind a merch table. A hesitant yes and an impromptu one day practice to learn the entire set later, George left home to accompany Stick To Your Guns on tour and never looked back. Fourteen years of incessant touring and five billboard charting releases later, George couldn't be happier with the decision he made.
Drawing his influences from punk and rock legends such as Tra Cool and Brooks Whackerman, George's playing is as loud and in your face as it gets. But this chaos is met with extreme precision from years of formal training in Marching Corps and also the fields of Latin and jazz. He lives, breaths, sleeps the drums. An unstoppable force within the hardcore scene, George Schmitz has finally got his foot in the door and plans to show the world what he is capable in his up and coming years.
