As a touring and gigging drummer, bassist, and percussionist, I’ve been blessed to visit five continents and collaborate with great musicians in many styles.
R&B, FUNK, FUSION, and HIP-HOP
I’ve had a ball playing bass and drums with cover bands Thunderpussy, Divalicious, and 14-piece Michael Jackson tribute Foreverland. I’ve enjoyed touring and recording with jam-band stalwarts ALO and backing up soulful songbird Maya Azucena.
ROCK & ROLL, JAZZ, and BLUES
I love playing New Orleans-style second line, African-American gospel, as well as folk, rock, blues, and jazz with artists such as rhythm icon Hamid Drake, Brass Monkey Brass Band, MoonCandy Live House Ensemble, Forest Sun, Sparlha Swa, and Father Roberto DeHaven of the St. John Coltrane Church.
I’ve played with masterful tabla artist Suphala, qawwali singers Riffat Sultana and Sukhawat Ali Khan, cumbia/salsa/hip-hop stars La Gente, Nigerian Afro-house artist Wunmi, Afrobeat band Tinsaedu, Indian pop singer Shakti, and many kirtan singers, including Karnamrita Dasi, Gaura Vani, the Mayapuris, and Donna De Lory. I’ve also had fun drumming for Polish reggae band Village of Peace and being a roadie/photographer/drum apprentice for the Ranganiketan Cultural Arts Troupe from Manipur, India.
