Vic Firth Artist Spotlight shoot and NAMM Pearl Booth spotlight

The good people at Vic Firth got together 8 acts for their Artist Spotlight’s of the year, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. Some were collabs, and some were solo’s. It was a laughter and gear filled 48 hours at the Fortress studio. Great times with old friends and new. This years spotlights are:

Sput and Nate Werth (Snarky Puppy)

Matt Garstka (Animals As Leaders)

Karl Brazil (Robbie Williams)

-Latin All Stars with Alex Acuña, Jimmy Branly, Tiki Pasillas, and Joey De Leon (I got to sit in with them for a few minutes, legends!)

Aaron Spears, Gerald Heyward, Chris Coleman, and Jamal Moore

Tim Yeung (Morbid Angel)

Dave Elitch (Mars Volta) and Michael Iveson (Gotye)

-and myself! 

Stay posted for the video’s, coming soon.

Also, if you happened to be at NAMM this year, the Pearl Drums booth had a 20′ picture of me. It was a surreal moment for me to see myself on the wall at an event I went to since I was a kid, especially cuz it was such a creeper photo. Perfect, just perfect.
