Jason Sutter

Jason Sutter is a hired gun in the best sense of the word—His aim is true, and he’s a straight–shooter.

Since I first met him as the up-and-coming drummer for the band, Jack Drag, Jason has moved onward and upward, picking up recording and touring experience with a list of some of Rock and Roll’s greatest names, names like American HiFi, The New York Dolls, Foreigner, Marilyn Manson, Smashmouth, Vertical Horizon, Chris Cornell from Soundgarden, Julianna Hatfield, and most recently, Shooter Jennings (son of Waylon Jennings).

It’s a list that is surprisingly long for someone as young as Jason: a lot of these tours and sessions came after tough auditions. How does someone ace so many auditions when every other drummer called in is talented and capable, too? It helps to be easy to work with, and to have a great pair of ears, tons of experience and the ability to combine these into a great sensitivity to what you are listening to. That also sounds like the ideal guest for Drummeradio.
