Brian Blade

1970 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Drums/percussion

Genres: Blues, Folk/Country, Jazz

This American drummer first drew notice for his work with Joshua Redman, Kenny Garrett, Joni Mitchell, Bill Frisell, Daniel Lanois, Wayne Shorter and Bob Dylan. Brian Blade has also released a few albums with his own group, The Fellowship Band. With Mama Rosa, however, his first effort as a writer-composer (released in April 2009), the drummer set out on a more personal musical adventure, both singing and playing the guitar. In 2014, he follows with Landmarks (2014).
