Hosted by me, Seamus Evely, Drumeo Gab podcast focuses on the lives of drummers. These are conversations that are carefully prepared and finely executed, while still allowing freedom and a chance for things to develop a life of their own. I also make sure to include a wide variety of artists on the show. We go from the most in-demand drummers in the world to grassroots players with fantastic stories of their own. This show always puts the guest first to create unique listening experiences for people and to create a time capsule for both myself and listeners. Made with love.
Brody Simpson - The Life Of A Recording Engineer
Brody is a highly specialized recording engineer. Considering how many people are now getting into home recordings, Brody is a wealth of information. There are many tips and ideas being presented here that will be incredibly useful for drummers that are making their own recordings and don’t have access to a knowledgeable engineer. It won’t answer all of your questions by any means but the bulk of the conversation relates to drummers who are diving into more studio work and/or are making recordings.
VIP - 11/25/20 - The Beginner's Mind
“If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything, it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind, there are many possibilities, but in the expert's mind, there are few.” - Shunryu Suzuki
Do I know a lot about this subject? No. However, I have some tangible thoughts about it and I wanted to explore some ideas that involve this beginner's mind concept.
Patch Mahoney - Ludwig Is Why I’m Not A Doctor
Patch and I are buddies within the community. He hit me up to hang out virtually and I recommended that we record it. So this episode is basically a chill chat between two friends. Of course, for the sake of the episode, I prepared some stuff. We ended up talking about his personal and professional background, the “fake it until you make it” concept, social media management, and the always challenging balance between perfectionism and productivity in any artistic endeavor.
VIP - 11/18/20 - Music Tells Me What To Practice
Musicians often say, "the music tells me what to play", and I agree with that one hundred percent. But what if music told us what to practice? I have often heard how confusing it is out there with the many lessons online. There is just so much to potentially learn! But if our music tastes dictated to us what we need to improve upon in order to play the music we love, maybe it would cut down the confusion. That is what today's episode is all about.
Jack Thomas - Inspiring Us Through Example
This episode is heavy and will make you feel a lot of different things. Jack's story is one that we can all learn from and it puts things into perspective. If Jack can do what he does, what is our excuse? I cannot begin to imagine what life must be like for an amputee - and to watch his drumming is so inspiring. This is a good one.
VIP - 11/11/20 - Now Execute!
I have been in many scary situations. The podcast really comes to mind when taking a plunge into something where it boils down to "sink or swim". Listen to the last two VIP's if you haven't already where I explain preparation and risk-taking. Those episodes really set the stage for this final part. In my experience, these tips and thoughts are what got me through successfully to the other side.

The inspirational drums - not drums - podcast
Seamus... Seamus, Seamus, Seamus...
This guy... you seriously have to experience this podcast.
Trust me. I’ve heard every single podcast episode - including his previous podcasts - more than once.
Here’s the thing: there’s plenty of guitar podcasts, drum podcasts, production podcasts, photography podcasts. They are always the same: “oh why did you start playing drums” or “what’s your favourite gear” but this... this is something else!
It’s no wonder this podcast has inspired countless of people to change their lives. To persist with drumming even though they are about to give up. To shake people out of depression, or just for people to feel included in the drumming community.
Almost every single episode quickly steers into in-depth stories, philosophical ideas, key lessons learned by the guests. Sometimes, things that they never shared publicly before. Listening to this podcast feels like you are sitting in a nice cosy living room in front of Seamus and guests, and you are just going for a ride, listening to fantastic stories. And at the end, you feel happy and connected to the community and the world.
Oh, and have I mentioned Seamus is the funniest guy, emphatic, down to heart, genuine human being that gives everything he can to the community? If you doubt me, go ahead and email him. :)
I myself was struggling on to wether or not to keep playing. A bit lost and demotivated in life in general because I took such a long hiatus. This podcast helped me find more than one purpose and call “BS” to the fears in my head and embrace drumming even more than before.
One last thing: this is definitely not for kids, or people who can get offended by swearing. Like I said, Seamus puts guests at ease - and they relax and act like themselves. There are more than a couple of seasoned pros who just swear or tell more mature stories - but that’s who they are. There’s also a few episodes where things get deep and dark. Those are some of my favourites. It’s necessary to see that life happens to all of us and we are still in control to change it.
Go listen now (or watch it if you have drumeo) and if you like drumming and are just generally curious about how some of your idols are in a natural setting - look no further. Pour yourself a drink, sit tight, and enjoy the company of Seamus and guests on your living room, car, bed :P
Thank you for everything you do for the community, Seamus!!!
Started listening to these podcasts a few months ago and I’m hooked! Seamus has a great way with his guests and really hits the questions we all want to ask. I’ve been drumming since the age of 11 and don’t get to play as much as I would like nowadays. When travelling in the car these podcasts give me great inspiration not only to get drumming more but also help inspire me in other areas of life. Keep up the great work!
Love this podcast so much. Really is so much more than just drums. Seamus’ interviews find what makes each of the drummers different. Such a good podcast. Cannot recommend highly enough. You really do not have to be a drummer to get hooked on this.
