Vern Lawton on SoundBetter

I can fit comfortably into the box or break it down, start it on fire and blow it up, your choice. Either way my focus is to deliver results that lend them selfs to your project that contribute to your success.

I’ve been playing the drums pretty much my whole life. I spent years studying and performing orchestral percussion and playing in jazz and rock bands. When I lived in the California Bay area in the 80’s I had the pleasure of performing with nationally renowned classic rock musicians from CCR, The Band, Buddy Miles, as well as many regional favorites of the time prior to my foray into the world of jazz. Since my relocation to Seattle I have become active in the local music scene. My personal emphasis focuses on playing original non-conventional music, however I’m always taking (other) gigs and end up playing a variety of music. My style of playing spans many genres (new music, experimental, standard and free jazz, avant-garde, ska, R&B, rock, soul, etc… My attempt to have a more orchestral and lyrical approach to playing the drums, regarding them as a more tonal instrument rather than a strict time-keeping device, has been well received in local musical circles. Aside from recent more conventional gigs, I continuously try to explore new musical environments and apply them to my signature and somewhat unique brand of “rhythmic treatments”.
