band: Tired of Fighting/Blame Yourself
STICK SIZE: 5AR
I started playing when I was about 13, I only did it because there was not enough drummers that me and my friends knew who we could start bands with, so I picked them up. I’ve been in and out of various bands, with lots of different styles, which works with my musical taste, as I listen to a lot of different stuff. My first real gigging band was a Rage Against The Machine tribute act, which, eventually lead me onto other, bigger projects. Thrash Metal, Groove Metal, Hard Rock, Ska and Emo to name a few of the styles I’ve played. Several major festivals,and tours later, it is now 2023 and I am locked into the two best projects I have ever been a part of. Tired of Fighting, an “old school” Emo band, mixing together those beautiful clean vocals with the heavier style 2000’s emo music style. & Blame Yourself, our take on the Midwest sound, the shimmering gorgeous guitars with big thick drums.
