Drum with confidence and competence

“It’s not often that you see a drummer who is hard-working as well as naturally gifted. Ethan is that drummer. Fierce work ethic combined with natural creativity. I couldn’t be more proud to know Ethan. I am truly inspired by what he’s overcome, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for him. Ethan Blackbird: a drummer in a category all his own.”

— Matt Greiner, drummer for August Burns Red

Meet Ethan

Well, I tried the flute, and that didn’t work out. My sister already played piano. All my friends already played guitar. So . . . drums? Best decision ever.
