band: The dev
STICK SIZE: 5A
I have been playing drums for over 20 years. I love all styles of music and have degrees in jazz performance and education. I have endorsements with Collision – of course – and with Saluda Cymbals, Raze Energy Drinks, SJC Drums, and Hayward Drums. The Dev formed about 3 years ago and has burst out on to the scene. Comprised of industry veterans who have toured the world, we all have the drive to make THE DEV a household name.
Achievements: We have played house of blues, opened for Calico Cooper, been featured in Alt Press magazine, voted best rock act in Orlando FL by the Orlando Weekly, got over 109k views on our latest single, and played on multiple radio stations. Currently we are working on tour opportunities for next year and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
THE DEV channel the heart and soul of classic rock and metal in their debut single, “broken lies.” The band set an early reputation for hard-hitting dual guitar action with the track while showing off the impressive vocal range of frontwoman Elizabeth Nikollaj.
