RICH REDMOND is not only one of the most inspiring and motivational musicians we've met, he's also one of the most generous. A genuine rock n' roller at heart, Rich is one of the most dominant drummers in the business today. Speaking of business, Rich is a hard working entrepreneur who's branding instincts serve as a best-practice model for his professional peers looking to diversify their music empire and capitalize on their niche.
While his bread and butter gig entails drumming for one of the world's most successful recording and touring artists, country superstar Jason Aldean, Rich Redmond isn't one to rest on his laurels. The #1 singles, sold out shows, and late-night & awards show gigs are opportunities to savor the spoils all the discipline and dedication that practice-room rudiments, tireless transcription, and constant repetition afford. Yet, for a man with an insatiable appetite and mind for music, the motor never stops. No park. No neutral. Just different levels of drive.
Realizing a corporate and educational need for authentic, participatory, feel-good, motivational events, he created the Rich Redmond CRASH Course for Success. Using personal stories and entertaining anecdotes focusing on the universal themes of Commitment, Relationships, Attitude, Skill, & Hunger, Rich models what it takes to be successful, whether in business or education, to leaders of commerce and students assembled at their schools across the nation.
Playing to his strengths of socializing and networking, Rich created a week-end long, VIP, immersive drumming experience for percussionists of all levels interested in intimate workshops and clinics with an all-star cast of professional, guest clinicians. Convening each Fall in Nashville (Rich's base of operations), the CRASH with Rich Drummer's Weekend has generated favorable reviews from those interested in a high-end, productive experience. Together with his longtime collaboration crew (and Aldean rhythm section & session musicians), The 3 Kings, Rich mentors up-and-coming recording artists, serving as a producer and songwriter via his studio production company, New Voice Entertainment. Hard to believe that a man with so many hats can wear them all so well. Now, that's inspiring!
