We asked... Why Gretsch?

Because of that warm Gretsch tone that you can't get from any other company. You get just the right amount of attack without sacrificing the warm and smooth tones of the drums.

Influences

I am influenced by many artists. Some of my top inspirations are Steve Jordan, JJ Johnson, Jojo Mayer, Tony Royster Jr., Buddy Rich and Benny Greb. In addition to drummers and percussionists, many vocalists and guitar players influence my drumming as well. Some of these Include John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Stevie Wonder and many modern producers.

Advice

Practice your craft. Progression isn't something that happens overnight. ALSO, play because you love to play and because it's fun. Always attempt to find that groove that gives you that sense of fulfillment and reminds you constantly of why you love to play.
