ABOUT

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 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.
