Drum N DJ
Linoleum floors, wooden spoons and Tefal were the mediums Brett Jones manipulated as a child to express his innate ability to create. Music and specifically drums were and are a part of his soul. It was this passion for music that drove Brett to bring his talent to the world.
At the age of five Brett sat behind his first set of drums. By age twelve Brett was teaching protégé of his own. At age Fifteen Brett joined a band, with Brett at the helm this band opened for Sam Roberts, played the Canadian Rock weekend and released an independent album which sold over five thousand copies. Influences like Dave Mathews, Carter Boulford, Denis Chambers and Buddy Rich impressed upon Brett the fervour for excellence as he pursued his dream. At eighteen Brett was confronted with a choice: redeem the scholarship offered by Musicians Institute of Hollywood or start an independent recording and production studio. Fierce audio was born. Networking with other musicians through his studio placed Brett on stage at Virgin Fest ’08 and at countless other venues aiding in the success of Brett and the artists who request his ability. Guitar, bass, piano, drums and voice are all tools Brett Jones has honed in order to bring his talent to the masses. Incomparable speed and precision behind the drums combined with an original style enable Brett to lend his abilities to countless genres.
