He was tasked with all aspects of the drum set instruction and preparation for the role over a seven-month period.

This week’s guest is Darshan Doshi. Darshan is a prolific Indian drummer and composer based in Mumbai. He’s recorded a million Bollywood movie soundtracks and is one of the busiest drummers in India for the studio / tv / live stage...basically anywhere you’d need a drummer, Darshan is your guy.

  This week’s guest is Jonny Scott. Jonny is a badass session drummer for both the studio and stage who’s played with two of my favorite artists The Kills and CHVRCHES (among many others).

I look up to him in a lot of ways and it was an honor to chat with him. Please enjoy learning about what made Jonny...
