Jeff Willet is a drummer, percussionist, and composer exploring a progressive approach to the drum set and percussion instruments from all over the world to create music that crosses genre boundaries and combines contemporary rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic concepts…
As a drummer and percussionist, Jeff has been involved with many different groups and styles – Most notably performing and recording with double-neck guitarist Ian Ethan Case, as well as performing in the Philly Fringe Festival for composer John Patrick Stewart’s epic 50-minute contemporary piece, “A Disruption,” alongside three other percussionists, four pianists and three cellists in the Chinese Rotunda at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia, PA. He has been a part of every musical setting from progressive metal, percussion ensembles, many types of world music, electro-pop and funk/gospel/wedding/jazz groups, to orchestras, show-style marching bands, and drum lines. Jeff has recorded percussion and drum set for documentaries, TV shows and commercials, trailers, and video games such as 0 A.D. (Wildfire Games) and Warrior Wave (Intel), and can be heard on percussion for Ian Ethan Case’s new release, “Earth Suite” as well as other singles and albums for local, national, and international artists.
Jeff has always enjoyed collaborating with other musicians and helping out other percussionists through lessons, blogs, videos, and any other way possible in an effort to keep everyone in the drumming community connected. After his internship at legendary MSR Studios in Manhattan NYC, Jeff earned his degree in Music Recording Technology from Lebanon Valley College, and previously studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Jeff works at Steve Weiss Music in the Educational Sales Department, and also specializes in gongs and world percussion. His full-length debut album is in the works with a release aimed for late 2021, and features some very special and rare instruments and incredible guest artists!
