I am a full time drummer residing in the Nashville area. I have had the pleasure of working on many different artists’ studio sessions and projects. I have 25 years of experience as a touring and concert drummer as well as playing in and around the East Tennessee, and Southwest Virginia area before moving to Nashville in 1993, where I have worked in many clubs and venues and played with many artists in local clubs, concert tours, showcases, road shows, studio sessions, videos and TV appearances playing both in Nashville and on the road. At 17 years old, I was the original drummer for the Tennessee Thunder Band formed in 1986 in East Tennessee where I worked touring and playing concert venues, local clubs fairs and festivals. I have worked with country artist Kevin Wilson, AW Rose, Jeff Caron, Jesse Cain, Lanndon Lingerfelt, Scott Skittle Johnson, Bobby McClendon and various other artists in and around the Nashville area. I play 200-250 dates a year. I work many clubs in the Nashville area, such as world famous Bootleggers, Whiskey Bent, Tequila Cowboy, McFaddens. Hard Rock and Silver Dollar Saloon. I can be seen doing what I do best in Lanndon Lingerfelt’s debut video called “Believeing In Me” shot at the Silver Dollar Saloon in Nashville in 2013, on You Tube and Reverb Nation, and many other websites catering to music artists. I have worked with various artists opening for Shenandoah, Michael Twitty, Ty Herndon, Tracy Lawrence, Daryl Singletary, Trent Wilmon, Mark Chestnut, and am currently endorsed by SilverFox Drumsticks. I have good work ethics and am very comfortable on a stage. I am very enthusiast and seem to be a natural at working a crowd. I keep the energy level high in shows, and I am a lead vocalist as well as a harmony singer. Sometimes I am somewhat of a comedian, often being told I look like “Larry the Cable Guy”. I am dependable, professional, and road ready for any session, road tour, local club, fair or festival, or video shoot.
