Hi there-I have been drumming for a number of years all around the Phoenix Metro area. I have played rock stuff, jazz stuff, country stuff, soul stuff. I find as I get older that I am moving away from the rock stuff more and more. I did not plan on doing that, but it seems to be happening. Maybe I should put a stop to that and get rockin more!
The music on this page is all done by collaborating over the Internet. I frequent a few different sites where musicians, songwriters and producers hook up and offer up parts on one anothers music. For example, I go to the site and someone is looking for drums to finish there song off. I download the drumless track and add my drum parts. I then upload the finished product. If they like it, I upload a separate drum mix. So, these are all Internet collaborations with folks from all over the world. I have a few samplings on this page. I tried to post a few different musical styles.
My gear? I am playing drums on a Roland TD20. I use a Presonus Firepod as an interface and record with Cakewalk Sonar. When I do any live gigs, I use a Spaun Maple kit.
Enjoy! Steve
