When I played at the Dolby theater for the first time, it marked a huge milestone in my career. I couldn’t even process the amount of legends that have walked and performed on this very stage. I thought I would only play this stage once and I could die happy lol .
Turns out America’s got talent was on the same stage! I’ve been able to perform here 7 times now between #shadmehr shows and #Americasgottalent tapings and man am I super blessed. .
My goal with this channel is to document my journey and show you that this dream is possible. It’s easy to get discouraged when you see other musicians at the level you want to be. But let me tell you.... I put my happiness in a goal that I thought would bring ultimate fulfillment, and once I achieved it, I sill was not satisfied? .
I’ve reached one of the biggest accomplishments as a drummer but I was still not happy? Why?
I’m learning now that happiness is not a 6 figure bank account or a goal that was set and achieved. Happiness is found in relationships with family, friends, people and using your hard earned money to create unforgettable experiences. I’m still in that search and I’m becoming more self aware everyday. .
My purpose is to inspire and give back. 2018 I want to open up to this community and share what I have learned in hopes that it can help another Drummer who wants to do this as a career. Much love and thank you for your attention 🙏🏼❤️🥁
