I pride myself on creating drum parts that are interesting, fun to listen to, and above all else, in service of the song at hand. The drummer can make or break a song, and it's very important to me that your songs should feel as good as they possibly can.
I was 14 years old. I was on stage with Horns Become Halos for our album release show, and I can so vividly remember the intoxicating experience of hearing the lyrics to songs we wrote being screamed back at us from the darkness of the sold out hall. This night is, without a doubt, the single most important experience I have to look back on as a musician. It not only serves as a reminder of how wonderfully fulfilling the experience of making music can be, but it sets the bar for the specific feeling I hope to pass on to everyone who chooses to make music with me.
Chasing this wonderful experience defined my career path. It pushed me to get a degree in music and to try my hand at every musical situation I possibly could in a never-ending search for new challenges and inspirations. It’s taken me to many different parts of the country and the world abroad; into the biggest sold out theaters alongside the most intimate jazz clubs. I put my all into everything that I do, and approach every project I engage in from the perspective of the listener, focusing on making creative choices that suit the music, above all else.
