We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"I’ve always wanted to play Gretsch ever since I started playing drums. My first experience in a real studio, I got to record with a USA custom kit and the first time I hit those drums, I knew that one day I had to become a Gretsch artist and get a USA custom of my own. Getting to sit behind Gretsch drums every day is an absolute dream come true!"

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Be passionate, be bold. Don’t be afraid to be yourself behind the kit. Never stop working towards your goals and you will achieve them."
