We had the good fortune of connecting with Drum’n SKillz and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Drum’n, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
Giving up is not a/an option, never will be. The route to your destination can change from where you first began, but turning around after going this far is not acceptable, no matter how old I get.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a drummer/producer Being able to play any instrument sets you apart from those who has no musical background, having a family of musicians and singers, you have the ability to hear what others don’t. The most proud moment as a drummer was practing with Earth Wind and Fire ,they came for an event in palm beach ,the drummers flight was delayed and needed someone to do sound check with. Even though it was just sound check I got the job done and they like what they heard lol As a producer my proud moment was seeing timberland (timbo) listen to my beats and actually mess with them. Also my instrumental mixtape “NUTH’N BUT BEATs “ you can get that at thelotterymusicgroup.com A lot of prayer ,faith,family,friends and hard work has got me this far. I’m still yet to where I want to be, but I’m grateful for where I am. The lessons I’ve learned… ummm ,you can’t mix friends with business. Control your emotions , do what you love and money is not everything. In all I want the world to know ,when you hear Drum’n SKillz whew ,your getting the best off me.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
