Handmade. From birth and bane to drumming bandit and believer, Kenny Bozich, owner of the indie business Winding Wheel Supply Company, has been working with his hands every single day. Originally, and continually, a touring and studio drummer by trade (The Almost, Metro Station, and fill in for Underoath, Anberlin, and Sleeping With Sirens) Kenny uses drumming as a major creative outlet in his life. After a few hard knocks as a young teenager, he made some serious decisions and landed a solid role as drummer for The Almost. I can only imagine how incredible it must have felt just to hold sticks in his hands at that time; like two paint covered brushes with the world before him an empty canvas and the world within him an adventure story waiting to burst forth. But those hands, blistered and raw from the passion he poured into his drumming found themselves craving attention in the long hours of an Underoath tour bus. So, Kenny did what any human with hands should do; he used them. “I feel like God puts passion in us to create.” Kenny said as a golden token of wisdom in an interview with Small Monsterz Leader-in-Chief Makana Hansen. “He puts passion in us to create…so lead a quiet life and work with your hands.” With that mandate in heart and the talented hands to pull it off, Kenny found some leather and started into something simple; a wallet.
That simple wallet started something as consistent and powerful as the intricate beat he would be drumming to thousands of people that night. Friends from the band and others took immediate interest in Kenny’s creations and requested more. With a single post, and almost one hundred orders later, Kenny had found himself with another creative output that people responded to. And it just took off from there. Starting with a simple wallet, and turning into a leather goods company that leads by silent and humble example in its high quality goods, Winding Wheel Supply Co. is setting the standard for passionate projects. Such as the project that pays homage to his drumming nightlife in the form of a leather stick bag that rolls up, and securely stores, an entire brick of drum sticks. Winding Wheel is as passionate and dedicated a company as the experienced drummer behind it. We urge you all to check out their products and find something leather and handmade that resonates with you as well as that first bass nuked wave from the kick drum.
