Album Notes
As a child growing up in a musical household, Brandon Draper started drum lessons at the age of 5 and discovered his passion for creating and recording music while sitting in with his father’s blues band, experimenting with four-track recorders, and spending hours at his drum set. Today, Brandon combines his talent for creating music with an exceptional ability to educate and inspire. Rob DeWalt, of the Santa Fe Reporter wrote, “Draper’s range of ethnic styles has me hooked!” and the Jan. ’07 issue of Kansas City Jazz Ambassador calls Draper “a phenomenal young drummer/composer/world percussionist/educator,” and lauds the musician’s recent relocation to the Midwest from the Southwest. In addition to teaching and touring, Draper works as a recording engineer and producer, facilitates drum circles, and collaborates/records with diverse artists.

After 6 years living in New Mexico, Draper relocated to Kansas City in 2006 and sought out some of KC's best younger players.
