“Grassmann uses modern and clever textures to point the music into a creative direction.”
– Jazz Weekly
Recipient of the 2015 Armand Zildjian Percussion Award, drummer-composer Clemens Grassmann has released multiple recordings to critical acclaim, including his latest, Midnight Apple. His genre-defiant aesthetic unites listeners, and he’s headlined noted New York clubs Rockwood Music Hall, Bowery Electric and Shapeshifter Lab, also appearing at Minton’s Playhouse, Zinc Bar and Smalls Jazz Club.
While studying at Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber in his native Germany, Grassmann received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music. There, he explored a range of sound with instructors Kenwood Dennard, Billy Kilson, Ralph Peterson, Terri Lyne Carrington, Danilo Perez and Joe Lovano, as well as peer artists David Milazzo, Clay Lyons, Enrico Bergamini and Ester Wiesnerova.
Grassmann feels fortunate to have shared the bandstand with some of the music’s most inspiring voices, including John Patitucci, Lee Sklar and Victor Wooten, and to have recorded with such distinctive artists as James Labrosse, Antonio Serrano and Yousif Yaseen, with whom he performed sold-out shows across the Middle East touring Yaseen’s 2016 release Visions. Grassmann looks forward to new collaborations in 2020, as he continues adding new dates to his tour schedule.
