We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

“I have always been such a huge fan of that great Gretsch sound. Tradition, legacy, history, beautiful sound and gorgeous finishes. These are some of the things that come to mind when I think about Gretsch Drums. What an incredible honour it is to be welcomed into the Gretsch family, and onto a roster that includes so many of my favourite drummers.”


Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

Work hard, be professional and always be approachable and generous with your time. We are lucky to be musicians and should always look to inspire others. Listen to a variety of different music and never be afraid to learn something new. I am constantly learning new things and my playing evolves as a result.
