We had the good fortune of connecting with David Myers Jr and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi David, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process comes from a mixture of people who came before me and their success in the industry.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
At the core of what I do I am a drummer first then i’d say producer/whatever you need me to be.

What sets me apart from others that do what I do is the path itself. Everyone has their own and I live by the phrase “Trust the process”.

Alot of faith and determination got me to where I am today.

No it wasn’t easy.

There were so many lessons that were learn through out this journey. But one I will say is know your worth.

One thing I would love people to know about my story is believe in yourself, set your intentions do the work and trust the process.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The great thing about LA is there are so many different pockets of town that offer their own vibe. So i’d throw out some things such like hiking, coffee shop hopping, beach, Muholland Drive and because of the hype its gotten lol i’d have to take them to In and Out. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
There are so many people, books, documentaries, etc that played a part in my story so far and i’d really love to s/o them out, but also being the person I am i’ll feel bad that I can’t name them all. With that said i’m forever a student to life so I believe I can always learn something from someone.
