From the sounds of his native Bay Area to the musical traditions of Harlem, drummer, singer and songwriter Eric Brown is all about groove. Playing drums with artists including Rachelle Farrell, Lalah Hathaway, and Sheila E., and performing in musical theater on Broadway , Eric is always in the pocket-and turns up the heat when it’s time to “give the drummer some”-while bringing new colors and a warm vibe to the music. ERIC IS CURRENTLY A TEACHING ARTIST AT THE HARLEM SCHOOL OF THE ARTS.
