It was great to be included in Drum Magazines 2014 Drummies Artist Awards.
There are some KILLING PLAYERS nominated in all categories.
The guys at ProMark and D'Addorio are truely doing some amazing stuff. My most favorite brush in the world the TB-3 is a cross between a nice vintage brush and a brush from the 21st century. And let me just tell you that there's some great sticks now.... BUT more on the way. Some really really great stuff. Thank you Rob and all the other guys for working so hard on this stuff.
I'm very honored to be nominated for Drum Magazines Rising Star Drummie Award! Vote here.
The Dickens Campaign is a collaboration between Deric Dickens (drums), Kirk Knuffke (cornet), and Jesse Lewis (guitar), this album is an homage to the late musical archivist Alan Lomax. Using selected melodies, the group inspires a new and modern interpretation of our musical heritage by using ideas from American blues, jazz and free improvisation.
Had a great recording session for an upcoming release. Kirk Knuffke, Jesse Lewis and I went to Maggies Farm Studio for the day and had a few hours of fun. Really excited about this ablum. Keep checking back for more info.
