412 – Building a Dream: Andy Morris (Founder, Dream Cymbals)

I’ve been working with Dream Cymbals over the past few years since they’re supporters of the podcast, which I’m sure you know by now. What you may no know is their founder, Andy Morris, is a very accomplished percussionist and drummer who initially got into cymbal making by accident. He tells the story of how owning a backline company and the search for pitched gongs lead to brining a new cymbal brand to market.

Any Morris talks about:

  • How he got into percussion
  • Why he started a backline company
  • How his quest for more and more gear lead him on a search for the perfect gong…which eventually lead to starting Dream
  • Self-doubt, imposter syndrome and how to deal with it
  • Why “doing your best” is the best you can do
  • Why his employees are always free to “take the gig”
  • Overcoming struggles and fear of the unknown
  • How to build a brand
  • Much more
