D’Addario is proud to welcome drummer/producer/beat-master Daru Jones to its ProMark artist roster. Currently residing in Brooklyn, New York, Jones lies on the forefront of progressive percussion performance, merging Soul and Hip-Hop to create “Soul-Hop.” Inspired by such legendary musicians as James Brown, Jones has attained a breadth of experience through his countless years on the Soul/Hip-Hop scene. All his beats reflect the art of incorporating live drum loops, jazzy samples, and soulful passion.
“Already a member of the Evans roster, D’Addario is enthusiastic to now have Daru on board with our ProMark line. The level of creative energy, sophistication, and expertise that he brings to the table is unparalleled,” exclaims Marco Soccoli, Director of Artist Relations at D’Addario. “Daru has his ear on the pulse; his mix of progressive, yet age-old style is completely in sync with our forward vision for ProMark, along with the way our company’s evolving as a whole.”
