« Back to Artist Roster

Jason Patterson is an American Drummer/Music Director from the Bronx, New York. His family noticed at the age of 3 his fondness towards drums and purchased a little toy drum set, then eventually getting a real kit realizing his seriousness for the instrument. Despite not having any formal training, he taught himself by watching drummers in church and listening to records and tapes. He adds that growing up in the Bronx, Gospel, Funk, R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Calypso, Jazz and Latin music could be heard anywhere. With an open ear, he practiced to these genres daily and learned to adapt quickly.

His favorites include Will Kennedy, Nathaniel Townsley lll, Jeff "Lo" Davis, Gerald Hayward, Dennis Chambers, Dave Weckl, Omar Hakim, Gary Novak, John "Jabo" Starks, Clyde Stubblefield, Chris Dave, Stevie Wonder, and many others.
