"Drumming Outside the Lines" is music from the hearts & minds of Kit Chatham, Matthew Bell, Alex Kuldell, Josh Dukes and Ryan Mullins. If you love music this is going to be the best 4:46 of your day. This is (as described on Youtube) a "Genre-defying instrumental mashup" but in my mind it is "not-so-traditional" AT ITS BEST! From the opening 10 second of Kit's jaw harp solo to the end where it fades out with a variety of drums this is nonstop fun with a unique blend of instruments.
It almost sounds like a joke~
Question: "What do you get when you combine Kit Chatham on Jaw Harp, Den-den Daiko, Drum Set, Tabla & Kanjira, Matthew Bell on Bodhrans & Rope Tension Snare, Alex Kuldell on Pipe Band Snare & Rope Bass Drum, Josh Dukes on Irish Flute & 12 String Guitar, and Ryan Mullins on Banjo & Mandolin?
Answer: Drumming Outside the Lines!"
But trust me, this is no joke…this is the stuff dreams are made of!!!!!
In a sense, this recording has helped me see a part of my dream come true. Most people know that although I love music of all genres, my true passion is drumming…specifically rudimental drumming. I have always dreamed of taking it to stages never before seen. "Drumming Outside the Lines" does exactly that, applying rudimental drumming in a "not-so-traditional" setting.
I want to personally thank Kit, Matthew, Alex, Josh and Ryan for their commitment to creating great music. From the reaction I saw on Facebook I'm not the only person touched by their innovative approach. I look forward to all of their future musical creations and hope many musicians take their lead in creating more beautiful "not-so-traditional" music!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
