Artist Statement

My drumming and my music are an extension of my spirit, whether I’m performing, composing, educating or leading my band, my music explores and breakdown stylistic barriers where genre are intertwined rhythmically and harmonically. As Composer and producer, my creativity is always in harmony with my work as well as the work I produce for other artists. As a professional drummer, my approach to composing and producing are influenced by my richly diverse live performance experiences. The melodic and rhythmic phrases of my music are written from a drummer’s perspective because rhythm is the primordial breath, it is at the heart of my compositions; drums and drumming have always been medicine for me, it is from this primal medicinal center of sound that my music formulates.
