Jeff Loomis - United States
I began playing drums at the age of 12. My first drum kit was a Pearl Export, which I still have to this day. I started listening to a lot of alternative rock and metal initially, but it wasn't long before I started finding inspiration from other styles and genres of music. I do consider my self a fairly diverse individual, and I believe that I am very open minded. I feel that these characteristics have reflected immensely on how I approach a drum kit as well as my overall outlook on music. Music is a very important part of my life, and I believe that creativity and expression are what make everyone unique. I love playing drums, and I couldn't imagine my self doing anything else.
It is an an amazing feeling and an absolute honor to be a part of the Pearl family.
