Michael Gregory DeMarco is an independent artist who prides himself on being both a drummer and composer. From Be-bop to Fusion and Pop to Rock, Michael infuses multiple genres into his music. Michael’s discography includes four albums released on multiple streaming services. His newest addition, “Layers,” features all original compositions. A new album release is anticipated this summer.
Currently, Michael plays in two different groups. Michael composes for and performs in a sextet called TAGEVED Collective, whose musical stylings span from modern jazz to progressive rock. DDP trio is a saxophone, electric bass, and drum set ensemble blending bebop stylings with live electronic sampling and seeking to blur the lines between modern jazz and electronic music.
Michael plays with the Collision 5 A and 7A sizes as well as the Collision brushes. Michael looks forward to his next musical endeavors as a composer and Collision performing artist.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I play the 5A, 7A, and the drum brushes.
One of my favorite things about the Collision brand is their commitment to their artists, not only in communication but making sure the artist is valued. I also love that despite moderately heavy use, the sticks and brushes feel the same as they did when I first received them!
The sticks are durable, they feel comfortable and reliable when in the hands and playing, and the Collision team is respectful and reliable.
