Hailed by The New York Times as “a drummer around whom a cult of admiration has formed,” superstar drummer & composer Mark Guiliana brings an adventurous spirit, eclectic palette and gift for spontaneous invention to a staggering range of styles.

Equally virtuosic playing acoustic jazz, boundary-stretching electronic music, or next-level rock, he’s become a key collaborator with such original sonic thinkers as St. Vincent, Pearl Jam, Matt Cameron, Brad Mehldau, Meshell Ndegeocello, Matisyahu, and the late, great David Bowie.

Following his acclaimed quartet albums ‘Jersey’ and ‘Family First’, Mark Guiliana’s ‘the sound of listening’ on Edition Records – released October 7, 2022 – is everything you’d expect from him, whilst taking the music in new directions we’ve never seen from him before. In complete contrast to his latest BEAT MUSIC! work, ‘the sound of listening’ (intentionally lower case) is a deeply honest and expressive album by a musician who knows where he’s headed and what he wants to say with people he deeply trusts. In April 2023, the album Mischief was released. “Recorded at the same sessions as the sound of listening, the music on Mischief represents a different side of the same coin”.
