== Style ==
About his playing he noted: "As much as I would love to say I have an original sound, I think the truth is I have an original filter. I’d listen so much and so hard to so many different people that what’s original about me is not necessarily what I play but how I play it, how I interpret it hasn’t already been done. It’s more about the energy and the intensity, it’s not about the specific fills, it's more about the intention."<ref name=":1" />
