  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    Just had the pleasure of Headlining Glastonbury with Stormzy and when we did the first song it was a moment I would never forget because I had to bring my A-Game very quickly but also enjoy at the same time!
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    I love listening back to old albums of my uncle Jerry Brown ! And also tours that Brian Frasier Moore has done
  • Why do you choose Vic Firth?

    My favourite has to be the extreme 5B's ! Everything about the stick is perfect from the weight to the length and the durability!
