Braulio Carballo

Born on December 17, 1998, He was Born and Raised in California, Braulio started playing drums at the age of 3 years old when he first picked up some drumsticks and would sit on a drummers lap to hit the drums, He started playing in church at the age of 4 when he was able to play on his own and from there on he would watch other drummers play and at age 13 he took drumming lessons only for a moment and from there his passion for drumming started to grow, Today His Drumming Inspirations are: Calvin Rodgers, Chris Coleman, Thomas Lang, John Blackwell, Gordon Campbell, Teddy Campbell and Arkadiy Kornev(Endorser of Soultone Cymbals), Eric Moore, Gerald Hayward, Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl, Russ Miller, Larnell Lewis, Adrian Bent, and Tommy Igoe, Tony Royster Jr., Kaz Rodriguez, Marcus Thomas, Thomas Pridgen, Marcus Willams & Derico Watson.

Braulio has played so much through out his lifetime he started playing advanced music at the age of 13 and began his musical journey by playing at different churches, gigs and other social events and at the age of 14 he learned how to play the bass from two of his friends from his church and slowly began playing bass instead of drums for a while, He got really good at it and started playing both instruments at church and years ahead he just kept playing music at his local church, He fell in love with Jazz Music in High School from listening to artists like Brian Culbertson, George Duke & many others, After he was done with school he was playing in church for a long time but after living in California most of his childhood and adulthood, During the beginning and most of 2018 braulio went through several ordeals in life which made him give up on a lot of things which includes playing the drums some of the things he went through were very personal and caused him to go into a state of depression and anxiety but soon braulio got back on his feet and knew it was time for a change, After much thought and consideration he made the decision and moved out to North Carolina during the summer of August 2018 and through a lot of self reflection and self improvement in 2019 he fell more in love with being a drummer, found his purpose and passion for drumming again and started attending The School of Music & Arts in Burlington North Carolina, Once he was settled in his new home he became more focused than ever on his journey of becoming a professional musician, He loves listening to all kinds of music from Gospel/Christian music to Funk, R&B, Jazz, Fusion, Pop Music, He loves the way the music moves through him as he listens to it and Braulio says he doesn't just play the drums just to play it but rather more he expresses himself. Braulio is now 21 years old and is continuing his journey as a musician and he hopes one day to fullfill his purpose and play with as many different musicians as he can and explore what the music world has to offer!!!! :) Once Braulio is finished with Music School he wants to become a Professional Musician/Educator Majoring in Writing,Teaching and Music Theory, He says he wants to help other drummers create their own sound and make a career out of their gifts. Braulio is not only a very passionate drummer but he is also very helping towards other drummers that are curious about learning more on the drum set.
