Jonathan developed a passion for drums at an early age, under the recommendation of his piano teacher. He spent countless hours listening to and mimicking the drum parts on any albums he could get his hands on. Many of these records came from his brother, who introduced him to hip-hop. Unbeknownst to Jonathan, it was here that he would learn how to drum in the pocket, something that he considers his most valuable skill as musician.
Throughout the next 15 years, Jonathan would continue to refine these skills, playing with as many musicians as he could, no matter the genre. It was within this time that Jonathan began to establish his own unique style of playing.
Today, Jonathan’s desire and commitment to playing music has not wavered. He has had the opportunity to play with many great musicians around the world and still challenges himself to continually learn and grow as a drummer.
