My name is Alexander Angel and I am a career percussionist originally from Jacksonville FL. I currently live near Atlanta and have been playing drums and performing for 38 years. My inspirational influences have been Neil Peart, Alan White, Bill Bruford, Carter Beauford, John Bonham, Artimus Pyle, Tony Williams, Lenny White, Billy Cobham, Danny Carey, Alex Van Halen, Simon Phillips, Tony Royster Jr. Mike Mangini, Virgil Donati and Phil Collins. I have been in several projects over the years such as The Newton Family (Southern Gospel), Cipher Zero (Christian Metal), Wright Flight (Southern Rock), Paths Left Undone (Progressive Instrumental Rock), Echoes of Imagination (Jazz Fusion/Pink Floyd Tribute, Cora (Jam Fusion), etc. Currently working on an instrumental project and with Green Jello as their drummer for future Georgia shows. I have shared the stage with some amazing musicians over the years including Mike Martin (Fozzy/Stuck Mojo) Artimus Pyle (Lynyrd Skynrd), Colonel Bruce Hampton and so many more. Notable venues and events include Atlanta’s Smiths Olde Bar, Center Stage, Avondale Town Cinema, Hemlockfest, Etowah Jam Band Fest, Namaste Music Fest, Alzheimer’s music fest, Guitar Center Drum Off, and virtual collaborations in several countries. I am currently an endorser for Soultone Cymbals, Gio Cymbals, and soon Vratim Drum Shoes. I am grateful to now be a part of the Collision family.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I use 7As. Favorite thing about the sticks is playing with them on the kit. Lol and the balance and pitch matching of each pair. Recommend these sticks to anyone starting out or that has been drumming for years. The sticks are lite in weight and very comfortable and most of all the feel and how they sound on the kit. Go grab a pair or 10 today!
