Once again it is my pleasure to introduce to some and present to others, another great talent making his way in the music world. This kat is skilled in the drumming arts and uses his versatile approach to Pop, HipHop and Electronic music to carve his own niche in the L.A. music scene. Also possessing a great professional attitude, which is another reason he gets hired. If he's not on a gig, he's creating drum vids and creating something he calls Downs Duets a very interesting take on the "drum video" scene. Well versed in the ways recording and programming, Eric will never be out of work. Thx to a mutual friend, Devin Beaman (Vol. 40) he sent me a video link and said I needed to connect with Eric. So I did. The next thing I knew he was the 43rd interview on TC and I'm so glad he agreed. Here he is in his own words, Eric Downs...Talkin' Chop.
(I dig this cover bcuz it shows how much better the track sounds with a live drummer, putting some feel into it.)
Simply put, we'll be hearing about Eric Downs on some kool, high profile gig soon, I'm sure of it!
Eric, thx for taking the time to do this interview and share your drum life with us. I think there is some really good stuff in there for those of us out there hustling in this game, especially our up & coming young kats.
Remember you can catch with Eric on his Soc. Med sites:
Connect with him and network.
I'm always looking for new drummers to interview.
