Christopher Speich

Drummer and Percussionist in Nashville, Tennessee

"Man, I love your groove!" - Bobby Rush

Chris is playing live with Nashville's premier event bands, and last year brought national dates with American Idol's Amelia Eisenhauer - while recording drum tracks for clients across the country in his drum room, Drumattic Nashville.

Because of his wide range of musical styles (pop, rock, jazz, and country, to classical and orchestral work) as well as his background vocal ability while playing, Chris keeps his schedule busy as a studio session player and touring artist.

As an on-call musician, Chris backs up some of Nashville's most talented songwriters on cajon and percussion, or fills in with artists or groups with little notice. You may even catch him playing with the Wolfpack Bluegrass Band or the music ministry at St. Ann's Church.

Chris holds a Bachelor's of Music in Percussion Performance from New York's Conservatory of Music at Purchase College.

Chris is an excellent communicator, and more importantly, a gifted percussionist. He provided a customized percussion track with a variety of percussion instruments for my song, and it's beautiful, musical, and subtle just the way it should be. Next time I need a percussionist, I know where to go - highly recommended!

Chris' playing style is contemporary and fresh and has a commercial feel. Without any hesitation I recommend Chris for your next project and I look forward to the opportunity of working with him again in future.
