Juels Thomas, DW Education and Events Manager, commented “Since we’re obviously not able to go out and hang with other drummers in person right now, we wanted to offer some different ways to connect with DW artists by checking out what they’re into while they’re stuck at home too. What music are they listening to that helps get them through the long days? What are they doing to keep healthy and motivated during the lockdown? Everyone brings something totally unique to every episode. Discovering new styles of music or drummers you may not have heard of yet and learning ways to keep body and mind fit for gigs makes us all more well-rounded players.”
