EP 13: Walfredo Reyes Jr

Drummer for the band Chicago, Walfredo Reyes Jr. combines the rich history of Latin, Afro-Cuban and World Percussion with the drum set. For Walfredo Reyes, Jr., fusing the two disciplines has been his driving passion. In fact, by blazing this path, Reyes has challenged the technical levels of our instrument. Born in Cuba, raised in Puerto Rico, and culminating his musical style in the U.S., Wally (Walfredo Jr.) learned the traditions from the master, his father Walfredo Sr. He married those principles with his love of the drum set, coming up with his own truly global rhythmic style. Simply put, Wally is able to sound like a drummer and a percussionist at the same time. Add blistering chops and a penchant for playing unusual patterns to the mix, and you have only a small idea of what this man can do. Not surprisingly, this “one man percussion show” has gathered an impressive list of gigs over the years, including touring and / or recording with: Carlos Santana, Traffic, Steve Winwo...

EP 12: Jordan West Jordan West is a drummer, vocalist, and songwriter from Indiana currently based in Los Angeles, CA. Her move to LA was largely inspired by studio legend Bob Clearmountain, who randomly stumbled upon her singing and drumming at a rock club in Indiana.

She took his advice and they recorded their first single together, "Blueberry Smoke", featuring Andy Summers on guitar and mastered by Bob Ludwig. She is also in the process of finishing an EP with producer/engineer Mark Hornsby. The project was sponsored by Roland, Ludwig, Avid, and DPA mics, and an accompanying documentary about the process was filmed by Nigel Dick (set for release fall 2018).
