Photo 1 - Drumkit

A drumkit by itself might look pretty, but it’s useless without a savage, sweating and bleeding on it, delivering the power to move a crowd. I'm not saying I'm that savage—I mean, I am saying that—but I still have a long way to go and I'm trying to get better every single day.

Photo 2 - On Stage

It's lonely up there, lost in my own thoughts, because I’m focused on playing my part. That’s all I need to do.

Photo 3 - Band Connection

The personal bond and musical tightness between us as a band is paramount. It shows the audience that they can be free and lose themselves in the music.

Photo 4 - The Crowd

Over 40,000 people are dancing their hearts out, all the way back to that Ferris wheel. We’ve done a million things to make this happen in a country we hardly ever visit.

Photo 5 - The Fans

The crowd is made up of amazing individuals, like this person here wearing a Pendulum shirt, stoked out of their mind. Without these individuals, none of this would be possible.

A Message to Fellow Musicians, Producers, and Drummers

I have a question for you: Have these photos and descriptions inspired you or pissed you off?  If they’ve motivated you, then hell yes! I’m happy to keep motivating you and show you what I’m doing.

But, if these photos piss you off and make you jealous, I want to dig deeper and ask, “Do you want to do this?” Because it’s possible—anything is possible if your goals are aligned with your actions. It might take shutting down Facebook and Instagram and really digging into what makes you tick and what makes you wake up in the morning.

I ask you three simple questions:

  1. What?
  2. Who?
  3. Why?

If you’re looking to push yourself to a higher place, read on:

I've been getting a lot of messages from people who are struggling. The big question I don't seem to get an answer to is "What do you want to do?" Who do you want to do it for? Why do you want to do it?

The 'how' I can help with, but you need to tell me the What, Who, and Why first.

For example, if you say, "I want to play on a stage like you" - that's great! I love that, and I want to encourage and help you in any way I can to accomplish it. But you need to answer these questions first:

Play what?

What beat or song do you want to play?

What songs do you have that will make the crowd dance or vibe?

What beat can you play that will make the crowd dance or move?

Play to who?

What audience do you want to play your music for?

Who is going to come and watch you play?


Why do you want to do this?

What is your mission?

What is your reasoning?

For instance, you might say, "I want to make people dance, I want to heal people. I practiced my first beat and now I want to play with a huge band. I produced my first song and now I want to DJ in front of thousands of people."

COME ON, dig a little deeper! You must have a solid What, Who, and Why for me to even begin to help you with the How.

And the How? That is the EASY part, once you truly understand the What, Who, and Why
