Paul Kevin Maxwell
My first name is Paul but I go by my middle name Kevin. I’m originally from Portland Oregon but grew up in Northern Nevada. I’ve been playing drums since I was 2 years old. I enjoy playing all styles of music. I currently work as an audio and lighting designer at a major slot machine company (similar to video game design) Before that I was a full time touring drummer. I love doing recording sessions and my goal is to spend as much time doing that as possible on both sides of the glass.
