We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"Gretsch was always my only choice. They sound great and feel like home with a character and a throaty tone that I just love.” The Hot Rods of drums!"

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"If considering a move to a "Music Town" like Nashville, be "aggressively" patient!!
Networking, playing, coffee with other musicians, being seen and heard are all “must do’s”… But, there is a pace to any town. Local musicians need to get to know you and you need to know them. Don’t rush the kinship. Sometimes it’s musically immediate, sometimes not. Be nice, Be good and Let it flow."
