I really worked hard these last two months leading up to SXSW to produce the Austin Sound Sampler. I got ten of my friend’s bands together to press 1034 CDs that we distributed to the public during SXSW. It has 18 tracks and is 70 minutes long. I’m very proud of it and everyone involved for helping make it happen. Thanks Austin!
Check it out:
My bands are tracks 9, 10, 11 and 18.
Everyone I knew in advance said yes to this. People who had doubts were people I didn’t know as well. I was fortunate to have a roster of 10 bands I know pretty well or else this could not of happened. I feel like this was a community making moment so thanks everyone for all your effort and participating!
More drumming posts coming soon! I’ve been working on my Steve Gadd paradiddle and rock and roll paradiddle lick in the interim, and playing back beats behind the beat.
