I'm a drummer looking to join the right project, preferably an established and gigging band. I am open to join newer bands if you expect to be playing shows and/or recording in the near future. While I'm not interested in touring, I can commit to weekly practices and regular gigs. I take my practice seriously and am willing to do the necessary to work to learn songs on my own. I'm looking for a band playing original music.
My focus is on groove, feel, and dynamics above all else. I can play hard (and love playing hard), but I prefer establishing the right feel for the song over flashy fills or complicated patterns. My favorite drummers are the ones who can help build the mood of this song, from loud to soft, or who can simply make it feel right measure after measure. I can also contribute competent backing vocals while drumming.
If this sounds like what you're looking for, don't hesitate to get in touch. Whether it's stoner rock or trip hop, indie or experimental, I might be your guy.
Please send samples of your own music if you'd like to talk about getting together. Thanks!
