“And over this journey of about 8 years, my confidence has grown exponentially in just being able to, like, meet people, get to know them, respect them, and also understand their concerns, their issues, their problems, their successes, their failures, are very much inline with me, with my life and it’s like man, I can do it. And also, take ownership of my joy and my relationship with music, my relationship with drums and be happy with that.” - Matt Crouse
