band: hollow stage / FLOWERS FROM SPIES / slave i remain
STICK SIZE: 5b
My name is Ryan Grant, and I’m a metal artist from San Diego California. Iv’e been playing drums for half my life but have been connected to them since I was born. I started off playing jazz but I grew up on metal and hard rock, listening to bands like Iron Maiden, Tool and Linkin Park. When it came time to make a transition to double bass, it was very quick because of what I learned from jazz, so Bernard Purdie and Buddy Rich will alway stay close to me.
I’m only just starting my career, joining a local band named Hollow Stage which started as session work, in addition to starting a new black metal project called Apathos, and a more mainstream oriented band Slave I Remain. Most of my time as an artist has been on Instagram where I’ve been slowly growing my base. I can’t wait to see where music takes me in life, and I know this is only the beginning. I’m both thrilled and honored to be working alongside the best company in the world, Collision Drumsticks.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I prefer the size 5B. I find that Collision sticks are unmatched in their durability, balance, and feel, leading me to recommend anyone these sticks because they’re simply the best around, and perfect for any job. Because sticks are your minds extension, you should play with only the best, Collision.
