Todd Bishop

…a strange and excellent musical experience…

Todd Bishop has been performing and teaching professionally in the US and internationally since 1985. He has led jazz, avant-garde, and indie rock groups, and produced seven CDs of original music for Seattle’s Origin Records and for independent release. With his unique multi-layered, organic percussive approach, he is a compelling musician, and has thrilled audiences with visceral performances owing as much to the influence of Olatunji, or Keith Moon, as to the jazz masters. Bishop is also the author of the blog Cruise Ship Drummer!, one of the leading Internet sites on jazz drumming.
