Playing drums for 16 years, Ryan Scottie has been performing professionally with IAMGENRE and Devon Kay & The Solutions.

WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
7A & 5AR
My personal favorite thing about the sticks is a combination of two things. Their length and their feel. For my more energetic projects, the 5AR’s are extremely solid at maintaining feel while being able to support my intensity! For more controlled sound gigs I prefer the 7A stick because it plays light like a jazz stick but still has that same wonderful feel if there’s a call for more energy.
I appreciate Collision’s commitment to creativity and growth. They give you the option to customize your own stick if you want that individuality and are always looking to better themselves.
“The success of Devon Kay and the Solutions’ ability to reel me in is twofold: firstly, the band don’t seem to be trying too hard to produce an amusing record, and secondly, they have a knack for writing good tunes that are almost impossible to ignore. If that wasn’t enough, Losing It is a long way from being a one trick pony anyway, with a variety of song structures and styles in its dozen tracks.”
