STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Since moving from here from Alabama in the summer of 2010 Parker Thompson had a lot of things to adjust to, but one has stayed the same. Playing the drums.

He's been a percussionist for more than 10 years now after learning the basics from his father. He is a self-taught rock/metal inspired drummer. Thompson  says he loves taking what he hears in his headphones and implementing a style of his own. He's eager to hear new beats and sounds, and always looking for ways to improve his skill set.
