J-rad Sterling started playing drums at age 7. He's been playing drums for 23 years now. After seeing KISS live in concert at age 10 for the first time he knew that's what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. He started practicing more and taking the instrument more seriously. He's been in many bands over the years and has shared the stage with bands like Nazareth, Voivod, Anvil, April Wine, Skeletonwitch, The Agonist, and many more. He currently drums for a couple of bands and does session work out of London ON. He also has a solo project called STERLING where he plays, sings, and records everything himself. He's been playing Pearl drums his whole life and recently joined forces with Pearl Drums. "They truly are the best reason to play drums." J-rad is proudly endorsed by Pearl Drums.
