Album Notes
"Weston's drumming is filled with subtleties. He uses a light touch to convey muted sensitivity by deftly massaging the skins and rims. His playing has a stark reality to it, a feeling of nomadic wandering without hope of reaching nirvana. When his playing becomes brusque on "Vacuums IV", the aggressiveness is overt to the point of being disconcertingly intense. Weston puts a unique spin on the drum solo and creates tones of atypical sonority. He is a sound explorer on an apparent endless quest for purity."
--Frank Rubolino, Cadence Magazine

He has studied and/or collaborated with Arthur Brooks, Bill Dixon, Milford Graves, Kevin Drumm, William Parker, Jack Wright and others.

His work has earned critical praise from such publications as the Wire, Signal To Noise, Cadence, and Bananafish. His solo album "Vacuums" has garnered international acclaim, as have his recordings with Barn Owl and with Tizzy.
