John Perrin on SoundBetter

John Perrin is been best known as the drummer in the critically acclaimed band 'NRBQ' since 2015, but he's also an in demand session musician, engineer, producer, & live performer. John is capable of recording professional quality drum (up to 12 mics), guitar, bass, keyboard/patch, and vocal tracks in his home studio. John has an ear unlike most!

John Perrin has turned a lifetime of musicianship into a budding career. He’s been playing drums since he was 2-years-old, performing live since he was 10, and began doing session work since age 12. He's now 27 and has honed his skills to the point of musicians twice his age.

John joined the legendary American band 'NRBQ' in 2015. When asked about his experiences touring and recording with the group, he had this to say: "I feel as if joining NRBQ is like taking advanced classes in the most highly regarded school of music to ever exist."

John has personally been highlighted in a feature with “DRUM! Magazine” and written about with the group in articles published by The Washington Post (both of which have been attached), Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pollstar, and High Times. John has played on records by Scott The Hoople (featuring members of R.E.M. and the Young Fresh Fellows), The Parasites, and hundreds of others.
