Musically 2017 was a great year that saw the release of my debut album, Next Level, that peaked at #3 on the Roots Music Report Jazz Chart and #7 on the NACC Jazz Chart. In addition, it received some outstanding reviews including reviews in 2 different issues of Drumhead Magazine. I also had the honor to join the Paiste Cymbals family as an artist in 2017. Paiste Cymbals were my first real cymbals and I have loved them ever since. It is an incredible honor to join a cymbal family that includes legends like Jeff Porcaro, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Jordan, Jim Keltner, Abe Jr. and many more. 2017 also saw a bunch of great live shows including playing with Soulhound, Memory Dean, Next Level, Jess Goggans Band and others and saw the expansion of my home studio where I provided dozens of remote tracks for artists from around the world including from the US, Croatia, Italy, Spain, etc. I look forward to a great 2018!
