Chris Dave is one of the most accomplished and critically acclaimed drummers in the world, dubbed as Questlove's "worst nightmare." You may not personally know his work, but you've definitely felt his percussion over the past 20 years through the grooves of D'Angelo, Mint Condition, Adele, Justin Bieber, Maxwell, Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, and many more.
With all of the accolades that have come with his background work as a session and tour drummer for the aforementioned, he formed his own ensemble in 2013, under the name Chris Dave and The Drumhedz. They recently released their self titled sophomore album with features from SiR (TDE), Anderson .Paak, Bilal, Tweet, Phonte, Elzhi, Stokley Williams, Eric Roberson, Anna Wise, and Kendra Foster. This is a pretty star studded cast, and a jazzy affair that you won't want to miss. Stream the full album via Spotify.
