Watch Luke Combs’ Drummer Jake Sommers Create His Own Parts For Gojira’s “Stranded”


Country musician Jake Sommers was recently thrown into the deep water of Gojira by Drumeo. The drummer, who has sat behind the kit for diamond-certified country star Luke Combs since 2015, was recently introduced to Gojira‘s 2016 single “Stranded“, and then tasked with coming up with his own drum parts for it. The premise of this ongoing video series from Drumeo is that the featured musician is played a version of the song without drums, leaving them to quickly come up with their own take on it.

As it turns out, Gojira wasn’t the first pick for Sommers, as tracks from Korn and Porcupine Tree were served up as initial candidates, but he admitted to having previously heard both tracks. You can watch him come up with his own spin on “Stranded” below:
