Sonny Thurnall

I have been blessed by God to be playing since I was 9 years old. My first drumset was in our living room and when I practiced, everything went off, and my family listened. So needless to say, I owe a lot to my parents, family, friends and now my Wife. I have had the opportunity to study under local greats such as Mack Pittard and Bill Schaffer. And I even have had one lesson with Drumming legend Joe Morello.
I am now honored to represent Soultone Cymbals exclusively, as I play both Christian and Country Music. I am currently playing with up and coming Country Recording Artist Sonny Thurnall and the Hitchen Post Band. Also, I have had the chance to play with the TNT House Band for Lebanon Grand Opry, RM/S, Exit 113 Band, Reflect the Son, Rhythm of Grace, Michelle Leak Band, The No Fences Band and Columbus Symphony Orchestra. I also play independently in numerous Praise Bands as both a regular member and fill-in for local Churches and benefits, and fill-in with local Country Acts.
I chose the Gospel Series cymbals for their great cutting sound and awesome looks: 21” Big Bell Ride, 15” Wave Hi Hats, 18” and 17” Crashes and growing. Have just added 7" splash and 18" FXO 6 China.
