Nashville, TN. Drummer. Guitar Player. Songwriter. @mountainslikewax @westnativetn
Last little IG mini creation for a while. This is sort of a double demo of 1. the Sanyo radio amp 2. experimenting with plugging a mic through my pedal board. Guitar was plugged into my pedalboard, then into the Sanyo, and then the Sanyo was ran direct into my Apollo. The drum mic running through the board is the 57 over the kick. Using my compressor, vibrato, overdrive, and delay to create that sound. DD20 “twist” mode for the oscillating sound. Okay, end of long description no one cares about ✌️
Hoping to play more live drums in 2019 🤞
I have just as much fun doing this as I do playing. Honored to have @kiosmusic come in today to record drums for some new songs they are working on. Very excited to hear these come out. They are real talented and creating a unique sound I dig a lot. Put up 14 mics on the kit for lots of options thanks to borrowing a few mics from @andrewecapra and @coleman_neil brought this vintage Shure (swipe over) that was a lot of fun as well.
Tearing down some gear today to make room for a session in engineering tomorrow, so I figured what better time to take a little family photo. I think I see a 20/12/14 Rogers or Slingerland in my future...
Lots of great music coming through so far in 2019! This time I got to throw some drums on a song for @_brandonsharp & @shaneschauer! I couldn’t decide which part of the song to post so I posted two! Swipe over for the section that really opens up. No samples here but plenty of processing 😉 Instagram destroys audio/video quality, ugh

My band @ificould_forever released a new song today called “Inside Your Head”. We worked very hard on it and we’re so excited to share it with you. It’s my favorite piece of music I’ve put out to date. I recorded it all in my living room. It’s a joy to make music with @_wesleyjames. We’re just getting started. We hope you love it ❤️
My band @ificould_forever is releasing a new song at midnight! Hope you will check it out because it may be my favorite thing I’ve ever put out 😛
Messing with more drum sounds. Threw some guitarmonieeeees on this one too. All the guitars were tracked directly through the @strymonengineering Big Sky cab sim into Logic, not bad!
Another @miletwentyfour song I had the privilege to produce is out today! Lots of fun production tricks going on in this one 😉 Go check out “Not Enough” Mix : @mic_mech
Working on tight/muted drum sounds. Added some bass and other things and made this mini song. Enjoy with 🎧 to feel the warmth.
The best thing that happened in 2018 and the best thing that’s happened to me ever.
More sounds from working on @quinnerwin’s new album. Lots of fun stuff going on here. No samples. Enjoy with 🎧
More drums from @quinnerwin’s record I’m working on. More to come as we move along. No samples. Enjoy with 🎧
Working on an LP for @quinnerwin, so I figured I would post drum sounds I’m getting for it here. Drums only because I can’t show you the songs yet! Some fun loops I created for this song are going on in this as well. No samples. Enjoy with 🎧
🔈“Massachusetts” is out today! This is the first single from an EP I was fortunate enough to produce for @miletwentyfour. More on the way. Go check it out! Mix: @mic_mech
Excited to be joining @coin as a tech for their US Headline tour early 2019! Swipe to see the dates and go buy some tickets. Link in their bio. A massive thanks to my most selfless wife @jenna__west for telling me to go for it.
🦃Happy Thanksgiving!🦃 @tipzandtrikz4muzik has you covered for learning how to make your snare sound like a dang turkey. It’s easy.
