Today’s podcast is with Tim “Figg” Newton, a virtuoso on the drum set. We were able to talk with him about what makes a great musician in general, and how he became a working drummer. In 2008, he was runner up at the 20th Annual Guitar Center Drumoff. You can check him out on Gospel chops, or with the band, The Earful, among many other groups he plays with. Tim is constantly gigging around the country and abroad. He and Phil really went down the percussion wormhole in this one, so if you are a drummer or percussionist, this is the podcast for you. He was even kind enough to perform a drum solo for us on his very own custom made kit from Vessel Drum Co. in Encinitas. This was a great conversation with Tim “Figg” Newton. Please enjoy.
