(Angel) Zuly Gonzalez
Hello My Name Is Angel ! I am a Musician, Drummer, Social Worker, and Entrepreneur who has stepped away from a job as therapist which deeply saddened me after working in the field for over ten years. I worked with kids that struggled with anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation to name a few of the issues. The resignation from my job took place after I became ill due to the high intense nature of working in the field, and the difficulties incurred with having to manage high case load volumes that encompassed working with at risk teen and adolescent youth.
While in a current transition phase in my career, I have moved on to pursue my next passion which is for the love of drumming and music. Music has healed me tremendously on many levels. It motivates, inspires, and moves my spirit. It allows me to dream, instills hope, and is a great positive coping tool to soothe and heal the soul. My goal now is to pursue an updated career version for myself with efforts in helping the community heal through music and drumming just as it has healed me.
I began playing drums about 9 years ago on and off. However, within the last two years have been practicing weekly/monthly basis, and will continue to do so until I have mastered. I have always loved music and truly appreciated all the instruments that provided such healing and amazing sounds. My music influences are: Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Rush, Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Santana, Classic Rock 60s,70s, and 80s music.
