#65: Joe Lionetti – Building Blocks of a Journeyman Drummer


Today’s guest is a journeyman working drummer Joe Lionetti. Most might know him as a founding member of the band Emmure and now is working with a new group call Lakeshore

Joe is endorsed by Vic Firth drumsticks and Evans drumheads.

About our guest:

Joe started with drums at a young age and by his early 20s was touring the country with Emmure. Joe has been a journeyman in this drumming game and is now embarking out on a new project titled Lakeshore. They just dropped their EP “41” with Outerloop records on August 4th!

Key points from today’s podcast:

Starting the Journey: Having a drumming father it was pretty early when he first found himself behind the kit. He really digs into his early years and takes us through High School and when he made the decision on being a full-time drummer!

Getting plenty of experience: Joe gets into how Emmure was formed and brings us through those formative years of building a band to the success that he’s seen. Joe also talks about how those years play a big role in his current mindset.

Let’s talk drum gear: As always we get into a talk about Joe’s current gear with Lakeshore and how his setup has changed with the different genre that he’s now embarking on.

In closing:

We had an exciting chat with Joe and we know Kevin loved talking some Steely Dan. Make sure to check out this epic edition of rapid singles too. We look forward to hearing whats next for Lakeshore and keeping up with what Joe has going on!
