Pearl Welcomes Ben Sesar to the Artist Roster

Pearl Drums is proud to welcome Ben Sesar to their esteemed Artist Roster!  For the past 15 years, Ben has spent the majority of his time playing sold out stadiums, late night TV shows, and touring the world-over alongside one of country music’s biggest superstars, Brad Paisley.  Along with the heavy demand of their stellar live show, Ben Sesar has also become a featured drummer for all 10 of Brad Paisley’s albums- 4 of which have gone Double Platinum- along with being responsible for the drumming on 20 No. 1 Singles on the Billboard Charts, 10 of which earned Grammy Nominations.  To go along with the 2 Grammy’s earned for his drumming, Ben also brought home a coveted Grammy Award for both drumming and co-writing Brad Paisley’s hit sing “Throttleneck”, which appeared on the hit-album, 5th Gear.

Ben’s astounding talents behind the kit have been the biggest factor to his incredible success.  A hard hitting drummer with a rock mentality, Ben’s flawless traditional grip and flair for the technical fill shows his true background as a well-versed and passionate student of his craft.  Along with his work with Brad Paisley, Ben has also built himself a remarkable resume which includes both live and in-studio work with Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, B.B. King, John Mayer, The Black Crowes, Carrie Underwood, ZZ Top, and several, several other top-class artists.  This summer, Ben will debut his new Pearl drums on a massive arena tour with Brad Paisley in support of their latest album, Wheelhouse.  Ben is currently playing behind a set of Session Studio Classic drums, finished in the always-classy looking Antique Ivory lacquer.
