On episode 094, Jamie is joined by Carlton Banks, founder and CEO of Collision Drumsticks. Carlton started playing at a very early age and was touring his native England by the age of 9 with SRS, a hugely popular young band. After many years with SRS, a chance jam session in a pub landed him a gig touring with super DJ, Rob Orton. The duo played some of the largest festivals in Europe over the next few years. While all this musical success was happening for Carlton, he was still attending university and eventually obtained his law degree. At this crossroad in his life, he made the decision to forego life on the road and launched Collision Drumsticks, which is now the largest drumstick brand in the UK. Carlton has a very specific vision for the brand and the drumming community as a whole. In this interview he shares his unique perspective and approach while giving tons of great advice for drummers of all ages and abilities.
