Hello, hope all is well. My name is Elder T Merchant IV. I'am a Drummer/Producer/Instrumentalist. Each link will be a different genre of what I've done. Whether, it's Hip Hop, Rock, Jazz or Soul. I wanted to make sure we stay in contact for any gigs, sessions, recordings etc that may need drums or percussion. I've attached a variety of links, with work I've done from the past till present. Also, I can send links to albums I've recorded drums on. Upon request.
PS I also play cajon. I've busked in NYC a variety of times. Both in Brooklyn, as well as in the city. I've also played for Make Music New York, in front of The Brazzen Head. Located on Atlantic Ave. SXSW, CMJ and Punk Island. If you check out my be channel you will see an entire set.
This vid is a Jazz, hip hop funk trio I put together. Doing covers. Real cool stuff!
This vid is a group I played with for a year. Some heavy sh*t. At the 10:55 mark of the video I have a pocket of solo time.
This is some tight rock and roll/punk group. Galapagosnow.
This is me playing over a back track.
And this is me playing with a punk band. I played at Punk Island three times in a row with these guys. As well as all over the city. Here's the album I made with them.obamanation.
And these last five are Melodic Drone Heavy Metal stuff! Pretty Bleach.
Please, feel free to check out my channel.
