Adam Cruz: Making Some Room

By Published: May 7, 2012
But Milestone succeeded in stoking the fire for this remarkable drummer. "I'm excited. It feels like it's time. I turned 40 around the time that I was making it. I'm 42 now. It feels direct, like it's an environment I need to further explore [about] my identity. It's not that the drums aren't enough; it's just that I feel there's some identity to learn about in my character and my artistic process to writing and leading as well. So I'm glad I managed to get it going. And I'll try to keep doing the work."
