I was born in Vilnius, Lithuania in 1992. I’ve been playing drums from 2009, although, my career actually started around 2012 when my first band released the first EP. This was when I started looking at drumming as not just a thing I like to do.
In 2014 I joined Juodvarnis and it has since remained my main band. We played in a lot of festivals around Europe. Most important of them was Wacken Open Air in 2014. Now we’re working on our third album and planning future tours.
I really enjoy teaching drumming to kids which I do from time to time. I also play with a few post-folk projects and compose my own music which is yet to be released into the world.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I’ve finally found a stick that fits my hand perfectly! Not only are Collision drumsticks comfortable, but they really take a beating. They really do last you for months even when hitting really hard.
I play the 5AR sticks. They just feel right. The long reach and heaviness helps to reach those bells and splashes easily with power.
My favorite thing about this brand is the support and the heart that these people put into their work. Playing collision really feels like belonging to a family of drummers. I definitely recommend Collision to any type of drummer!
