Young experienced, versatile drummer ready to make your project the best project around

Hello all. My name is Ryan Sands. I'm a young, dynamic drummer from Connecticut with the aspirations of being one of the greats in modern Jazz music. As a musician I prioritize feel, subtleties, and rhythm when I'm working. My style of play has led me to work with Phil Markowitz, Dominque Eade, and being a rotating member in the Christian Sands Trio.

Currently mans the drum chair for the upcoming New York-based Free Improve collective, Altus, featuring David Adewumi, Isaac Levein, Neta Ranaan, and Nate Reising. For the last couple of years I've been leading my own trio, the Ryan Sands Trio, and this fall I'll be releasing my debut record, Standing on the Edge of Tomorrow.

My main musical influences are Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band and Thelonious Monk.

    Excellent light jazzy drums every time. Ryan has completed 3 songs for me now and has given me what I've asked for each time. Will definitely work with him again.

    I had a great experience working with Ryan. Skilled drummer, good price, quick turnaround time, and no communication issues. Would definitely recommend. Thanks Ryan!
