I'm a drummer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist with a more unusual aesthetic. Having also worked in film, I like to create music that is surprising, off-kilter, cinematic, and rich with sound design and unsuspecting structures. I am first and foremost a storyteller through sound.
I've been playing drums for 33 years since before I could speak and travelled the world touring in indie bands. Although my original background is rock, when I was a teenager I started studying Jazz drumming under the late Houston artist Sebastian Whittaker. I'm largely influenced by not only jazz and rock but also funk, soul, afrobeat, latin, country, and folk. My sound is often described as some mix of jazz/funk with post-rock thrown in for good measure. I play with lots of feeling and groove and can bring a lot of life to an otherwise standard rock/pop beat.
As a session drummer, I'm available to record either in my studio or travel. I have an extensive background in recording and a strong collection of mics, preamps, interfaces, compressors, and so on. If you already have the song created and just need strong live drums that are a little bit different than typical rock/pop sound, I have a collection of fantastic drums and cymbals to offer a more unique, darker, rich sound which I prefer over bright and poppy.
I also produce/record/compose and play various instruments, mainly piano, guitar, and bass. I'm excellent at taking a song idea such as a demo and bringing it to life through rhythm and instrumentation. I'm looking to create beautiful, emotional music rather than club bangers.
Currently I actively tour with my band Public Memory.
