The Great “Girl on Fire” Snare Drum Giveaway!

After getting over 100,000 views on our video spotlighting the making of Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire,” Dylan Wissing and I decided to celebrate by creating this awesome giveaway through Modern Drummer. You can enter to win the GMS Snare Drum used on “Girl on Fire,” plus over $3000 worth of products from Aquarian, Sabian, Promark, Puresound, Audio School Online, and Drummer’s Resource. This video was SOOO much fun to make. I had my hands in everything from writing and filming to editing, directing, and even playing a little keyboard.

Modern Drummer Video

Dylan and I made this video about recording the drums for “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys. It was released by Modern Drummer and was shared on Facebook by NPR’s Eric Deggans. It has since had 12,000+ views on YouTube! Being only the third video I have ever made (outside of French Class projects), I’d say it was a success.

My First Major Credit!

I just had my first major record credit with Kanye West’s Yeezus! Two weeks ago I did an all night recording session with Dylan Wissing of Indie Studio Drummer for producer Ken Lewis and today I found out that my part was included on the record and I’m credited. I am blown away right now.
