Played drums on Sheryl Crow's 'Soak Up the Sun' & on over 100 other records
Have spent over 20 years touring and recording with artists ranging from singer-songwriter, folk, rock, bluegrass, country, jazz, Americana, pop, and salsa bands. I've recorded on Grammy nominated records with Sheryl Crow, I'm a feature drummer on Sonoma Wire Works Drumcore, and my drumming has been heard in every corner of the world.

I have multiple drum sets, dozen of mics, multiple rooms, all set up unique for each song.
1963 Ludwig Club Date Kit -> 20 inch kick, 12 & 14 toms with a 6-lug snare (sounds beautiful)
1970’s Slingerland Concert Tom kit
26 inch kick (massive sound) 10,12,13,14,15,16 inch toms (never too many toms!)
2018 Yamaha Tour Custom 20, 10, 12, 14
2018 Sonar Martini Kit (bop kit) -> 14 inch kick (yes and it is amazing)
8, 13 toms & a 12X5 snare (This snare has a real snap to it!)
Mid 2000’s modern Pearl Master Sessions kit 22 inch kick 13 & 16 inch toms
2002 13X7 custom built Allegra snare all wood hoops
2018 14 X 6.5 8-lug Raw Steel custom built snare by A&F Drums
1990's 13 X 3 Ludwig piccolo snare
1919 12 X 3 vintage Ludwig snare
1940’ 28-inch Ludwig concert bass drum that has a beautiful sonic character (think of the 1st track on that John Hammond record Wicked Grin 2:19 and that should give you an idea of that kick drum sound)
I have boat loads of cymbals.
I do not leave one drumset setup with the same mics for every song. Each song is unique and each song requires a unique approach in both feel and tonal vibe. I work hard and diligently to deliver the right sound and feel for every song.
I will add percussion to your song as well such as tambourine, shaker, some other odd sounds if needed!
