Profile Information

Musician • Drummer • Producer • Writer
Company Name:
Little Bang Theory Music • Hearo Records • Barnegie Hall Records
About Me:
I’m a musician who calls himself a drummer...not the other way around. When people ask me what I do for a living, I say, "I hit stuff."

I love playing great music and contributing to the song. I'd rather groove than anything else, but I can play those fancy fills and drum solos if you'd like. In the words of Garth from Wayne's World, "I like to play."

As a kid when I started playing, I learned quickly that moving drums can be a hateful experience. That's probably why now I'm producing and writing in addition to playing drums. But, I love to play them drums, that's for sure.

My Past:

I grew up in a small town in NC that had one blinker light. There wasn't that much to do, so I played drums. After college, I moved to NYC to be a jazz musician and even got a Master's Degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, but I decided that as much as I loved jazz music, I was still a product of Rock, Pop, R&B and Country Music. I worked on the scene there for a decade playing for various artists and as part of the various original bands, and made a lot of great music. As a kid, I just wanted to be in a band like Led Zepplin. But, I've been very lucky to have recorded and played with some great artists along the way. These include:

Stevie Wonder • Sting • Beyonce • Alicia Keys • Steven Tyler • Joe Perry • Mariah Cary • Shakira • Jamie Foxx • John Legend • Melissa Etheridge • Joe Nichols • Jo Dee Messina • Billy Dean • Chuck D. and Fine Arts Militia • Confrontation Camp (feat. Chuck D.) • Public Enemy • Busta Rhymes • Michael Brecker • Randy Brecker • "Father Time" Milt Hinton • MC Lyte • Dusty Drake • Jimmy Wayne • Dan Colehour • Rick Huckaby • Big Daddy Kane • KRS1 • Bootsy Collins • Vernon Reid • Delbert McClinton • Linda Davis • Diana DeGarmo • Melba Moore • Loralye • Clara Oman • Mary McBride • The Drakes • Father Oblivion • The Big Little and strangely enough, Will Ferrell. Of course, I've also had the pleasure to play with Britt Savage and Twang Deluxe.

Oh yeah, I also did some Broadway Shows in NYC. I have made whip crack sounds for John Lithgow in "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels." I have played quite possibly the largest set up in the world of drums and percussion in the show BKLYN. I acted the part of a drummer that couldn't speak in the show "Once Around the Sun."

My Present:

I just finished a record with my wife, Britt Savage. We’re really looking forward to making some noise with this band "Britt Savage and Twang Deluxe." It’s been great to colaborate with her on her record and we’re looking forward to hopefully doing some shows later this year opening for Raul Malo. But, in the meantime, be sure to check out our Mod Night here in Nashville at 12th and Porter. Britt will be singing and playing therimen, yours truly will be playing drums with the rest of the band, and a multimedia video presentation will join us as an additional member. We also have finished a video featuring one of the songs for our record Lookin’ Like I’m Gonna.

In addition to doing sessions for artists and producers such as Billy Dean, I have been doing more production work and recording records at my own studio. I have also been doing dates with Joe Nichols, Jo Dee Messina, Dan Colehour, Rick Huckaby and Linda Davis....and they are all artists with which I really enjoy playing.

Now for the legal stuff. I endorse: Smith Drums, Attack Heads, Vater Sticks, Vintech Audio, Presonus Audio, and Hart Electronics

Hey Wes. Nice to hear from you. Glad I am on the Twang Delux mailing list I will get there eventually. I need to see you play in person instead of just learning your licks from a CD.

Stay in touch when you can.

Hey Wes,
I'm going over to Todd's to do a couple of tweaks on his project. You played great on it, BTW! Can't wait to hear what we did again and I hope we get to do some more playing soon.

Randy Smith.........My brutha of the bottom end, my groove with Randy is one of the most natural things musically I've ever shared with a Bass player. If you can't groove with Randy Smith......well, You can't groove.
I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about. Great to met you, some impressive stuff listed up top. Good for you. Maybe we can grab a cup of Joe sometime. Peace
