We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"As I’ve matured as a drummer/ percussionist, I’ve embraced the importance of remaining teachable and maintaining the wonder and curiosity of a child/student. Gretsch fosters and provides that sound which keeps the creative space I travel through, fresh and new!"

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"My advice to aspiring and established musicians would be to remain free in your creative space. Protect its innocence. Believe every note you play and feel it’s conviction in the stories you’re facilitating. Serve the artist and not yourself and you’ll find joy in every groove encounter."
