Most memorable Next-Level PerformanceIt's hard to say! I feel like every show I play, I get an inch closer to being 100% relaxed, 100% of the time. Chipping away slowly!
What Drives Your Creativity?In a live setting, my creativity on the drums comes from the artist I'm playing with at the time. Their energy on stage inspires me and that allows for creativity and spontaneity to come out. In general, listening to new music always sparks creativity!
Why do you choose Vic Firth?My dad was a drummer and I remember seeing VF sticks around the house growing up, so I have literally been using them my whole life! They're consistent, and they always feel great to play. vv
