About

Three years ago I conceived the idea of creating a place where drummers could gather and learn from some of the greatest drummers in the world. Then my dream became reality when I started the Drummer’s Resource Podcast. Since 2013 I've done 200+ interviews and the podcast has been downloaded close to 1,000,000 times.

There has been a lot that’s gone on behind the scenes to make this happen, including thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars to grow Drummer’s Resource to where it is are today. While it’s been ad supported to date, it cannot continue to grow without YOU, the listeners.

I’ve grappled with the idea of charging for the podcast, but I still stand firm against it. These interviews are invaluable and I want them to remain accessible to everyone who seeks advice, motivation and inspiration, drumming-related and beyond.

So here’s my solution:

Many of you have written to me and asked me what you can do for the podcast and how you can support it. In addition to getting the word out and sharing your favorite sessions (thank you for that) I’m sharing something new:

I’ve launched a Patreon account which is a way for you to help support the podcast.

How it works:

You choose a monthly pledge amount, which goes directly to the podcast, for as long as you’d like. Support levels start at only $1/month. Trust me, every little bit helps and can make a huge difference. But I ask you to consider the value the podcast has provided to you and pledge according to that.

To be clear, the podcast will continue to be free for everyone. But those who pledge get something extra. Aside from knowing that YOU are contributing to the ongoing learning and education of drummers around the world, you’ll also receive cool gifts and exclusive rewards as a patron.

So what will I use the money for?

1 Hosting: Hosting costs are expensive and to keep the site fast, I need to upgrade as we grow.
2 Mailing list: Same here. Bigger list means the need to upgrade.
3 Web Development: To make sure you’re getting the best experience and the content is easily accessible, I need to make frequent site updates.
4 More gear: Video equipment for interviews, documentary-style films and entertaining shorts to give you even more access to the greatest drummers in the world
5 Content expansion: You’ve asked for more written and video content. I’ll hire a few staff writers.
6 Staff: I have someone (Justin) who edits the podcast but I’d like to offer him more hours and take on another staff member to assist with the day-to-day operations to bring you more content, more podcasts and more videos even faster.

You’ll see that there are a few different tiers of support, and while every little bit helps, I ask that you consider how much value you’ve received from this podcast. Your support means so much to me and the future listeners of this podcast. Help me to help us grow.

I have the BEST listeners and I can’t wait to see what we can do together!
