I started playing the drums way back as a little kid. The instrument absolutely enthralls me. I started on this musical odyssey by playing for the worship services in church, and then at the age of age of 13 joined prog-metal band (India) “Slain” as their drummer. We went on to win almost every competition there was in the country, and I won a number of “best drummer” awards. We continued to play for Seven years, and I experienced much of the stardom and spotlight that came with our success. We were featured on numerous music magazines, air plays , and had many international reviews. We even released our debut album “Here and Beyond” in the year 2010, and that was met with much success and acclaim. As much as I enjoyed playing for “Slain”, there was something in my heart that always told me that there was more to life and this musical journey than I had ever thought about or comprehended.
In 2009, I decided to launch out into working on an experimental studio project called“The Jo and Fred project”. That little project of mine led to the birth of “Final Surrender”, and there’s been no stopping since then. Starting of with my 5 hour practice on the drums everyday. I began to explore myself through many genres and the study of playing for many styles of music, which helped me session for many artists of various categories of music.
Drumming as always been the soul factor of any music and I've loved to cherish every moment of it.
