Ep003: Will Bowerman | Session Drumming And Networking Around The World Pt.1 | L.A./UK
Todays interview is pretty awesome, last week I was out in Los Angeles both for business and a bit of relax time. While I was there I got to have an awesome catch up with my good buddy William Bowerman, He’s is a international session drummer mostly known for his work with LaRoux, he’s appeared on charting records, main stream television and played venues most people only dream of. We had a great day hanging out at the observatory in Griffith Park up near the Hollywood sign and decided to capture some cool things we’d talked about.We ventured onto the roof of the planetarium to soak up the sweet view of L.A and have this awesome chat.
It’s kind of a long show, so the video is split into 2 parts so be sure to check out the next part.
In this episode we talk about
- Finding your own path and not following others expectations,
- Building relationships and effective support structures,
- Embracing change and being adaptable,
- Influencers, mentors and bouncing around ideas with friends
- How to survive tour bus living by being a people person.
It’s easy to let life and the people around you dictate your career choices. I can tell that Will has grabbed the bull by the horns and gone out and made his world work for him. He has worked his arse off to get there too. Things aren’t the overnight success that people want to see when they see a pro like Will doing his job. He’s achieved it all by building solid relationships that will always be there for him and he’s landed some awesome opportunities from doing so. Will has managed to be flexible yet hold true to his vision. The stuff about avoiding being kicked off a tour bus by being that friendly people person is absolutely golden.
This part’s been jam pack with applicable stuff to make use of. I loved it and hope you did too, Check out part 2 of this interview to hear how Will landed his dream job without ever picking up a pair of sticks, surrounding yourself with people who matter and how the right kind of branding and business planning can leave you financially and mentally sound.
