Kelly Campbell EP Release

20120823-215932.jpg

Check out this very cool record by a young female artist named Kelly Campbell. I had the pleasure of getting to play drums on this EP a while back, and am just now getting to enjoy the finished product. It always blows me away to hear a record at it’s inception, and then hear how it progresses from there on out. In this case, over a year ago, I tracked to scratch guitar and vocal tracks and a click track, and really had very little idea of what it would end up like… next time I heard these tunes was just a few hours ago, with all the other instruments and backup vocals tracked, completely mixed, and mastered. That’s a pretty serious transformation. I hope you dig it. Check it out here:

Fall Clinic Announcement

I’ll be putting on my first public clinic outside of MVNU this fall. On November 5th, I’ll be presenting on the topic of Groove Variations for Modern Drumming at The Center of Music and Art in Wintersville, OH, as part of their Extra Beat Percussion Series. I’m honored to have been asked to do this by one of my former MVNU students, William Cashdollar, who currently teaches at the CMA. I am GREATLY looking forward to this, and hope that it will be the first of more to come in the future.

PAS Ohio Chapter Secretary

I’m proud to announce that I have been elected as the Secretary of the Ohio Chapter of the Percussive Arts Society. I’ll be supporting newly elected President Jerry Noble and Vice President Eric Paton. This is a great honor, and I hope that I can contribute to the already thriving community of dedicated drummers and percussionists that call Ohio home.
