Steve the drummer
As the original drummer for Counting Crows (August and Everything After) Steve Bowman was fortunate enough to see the world, play on his favorite late night TV shows, and open a tour for the Rolling Stones. Since those great beginnings, he has continued playing live and making records with some of the industry’s best musicians. Steve’s playing has been heard on radio, in major motion pictures, and in over 50 television shows.
In 2007, Steve relocated to Nashville with his family “to record incredible songs in amazing rooms with killer musicians.” He has since played live and/or recorded with many Nashville artists, including Big N Rich, Sarah Buxton, Big Kenny, Kim Richey, James Otto, Greta Gaines, Mindy Smith, Jana Kramer, and more.
As a freelance writer, Steve has written articles for magazines and websites, authored four books of drum instruction, and maintained a successful blog. He has also taught privately, conducted drum clinics and master classes, and spoken at Rock and Roll band camps. He continues to record, tour, write, speak, and is now offering online drum tracks, private drum lessons, and music career consultation through Skype.
