I started playing drums in secondary school & from there my obsession grew & I listened & learned more. The next steps in my musical development would be to play with other people
Music to me is all about having fun & express yourself. Looking for people to jam (& maybe get the odd gig with) to share, create & learn something new!
To do a full on worldwide tour playing drums in a band
I'd eliminate poverty, give access to clean water to everyone & make education a right, not a privilege
A Little Less Conversation - Elvis x JXL. Dad is a massive Elvis fan & always had it on in the car. I later found out that legendary studio musician Hal Blaine drummed on it.
I've got an eclectic palate that covers blues, rock, jazz, jazz fusion, rnb. Some of my favourites include Led Zep, Dave Brubeck Quartet, The Roots, Grover Washington, Roy Ayers. (I'll definitely kick myself for missing some more)
Hearing others play & listening to different styles I havent heard before or not as familiar with
That I'm enjoying myself, being creative & working well with my fellow musicians
I'm not a seasoned pro at playing in front of audiences, I still get nerves. It's something I'm keen to improve
It's a shame that learning a craft such as drums, piano, guitar, etc isn't quite enough to make a career from anymore. I think record labels should invest more into instrumentalists, but due to margins it's unlikely that will change
I'm not sure yet im new to it
Being stuck in lockdown and not being able to play with others.
I try to listen to local or upcoming artists - some of my favourites would be Connor Selby & Rival Karma
They should understand how to promote themselves via social media & they should be fantastic musicians (I would guess - I cannot say from experience)
Connor Selby & Rival Karma (Although I think they've got a big following actually)
