“For me, when I hear something I see a colour.”
Kaz Rodriguez is an English drummer whose hard work over the years has resulted in a lot of mega opportunities these last couple of years. He is touring with Josh Groban, performing clinics worldwide, and he writes his own music. His drumless tracks have been a huge hit in the international scene with drummers like Sput, Chris Coleman, Aaron Spears, Tony Royster, Ricky Lewis and the list goes on. His philosophy regarding the drumless music is to share it with the drumming community so that drummers can put their sound to his music.
So, there is one thing I should point out in particular about Kaz that is incredibly unique. He has a condition called synesthesia. Basically, in layman's terms, he hears colours. He doesn’t read music but instead memorizes music with the colours he hears.
Kaz endorses Tama, Zildjian, Remo, LP Percussion and Roland.

Why Should You Listen?
Kaz projects so much positivity. His spirit for music and giving back to the drumming community is quite exceptional and his take on gratitude is a great reminder for every drummer out there. Getting a chance to hear his process with how he understands music is also incredibly interesting.
