Larry Garrett
Regional Drumset Artist - United States

Overview

Larry was singing, playing guitar, and drumming by the age of 9. His first kit was a Pearl W-5. By age 17, he was already a working drummer. By 18 he was picking up session work and touring throughout the southeast. In 1996 he traded up to an Export Series kit. In 2011, he traded up again to the Pearl Reference Pure series. In 2012 he added a Vision Birch Lacquer kit to the stable to handle the touring duties.

Over the years, he has continued to work as a session player, live performer, and a very limited schedule as a clinician, and instructor. His training in multiple instruments and music theory gives him understanding from both sides of the kit. He calls himself a “perpetual student”. Having studied many styles, his current jobs pull him in different directions. As a touring drummer calls for exactness and a pounding groove, the local fill-in gigs allow for more experimentation, and studio sessions that call for following directions. It’s all in the love of getting the job done.
