Jasson Martin

Jasson Martin's reputation as a stalwart among drummers has ushered his name to the top of the drummer-to-call list in the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. With a clear understanding of the drummer's role as timekeeper, Martin's flair for precise tempo coupled with his ability to keen upon the needs of the artist and setting for which he is performing has propelled his career into the arena of today's top Gospel and Soul/R&B artists. Jasson has fueled the rhythm sections for, or performed in conjunction with such notables as Donnie McClurkin, Kim Burrell, Dawkins and Dawkins, CeCe Winans, Vickie Winans, Darwin Hobbs, Pastor Clint Brown, John P. Kee, Bishop Paul S. Morton Sr., PJ Morton, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Paula White and Joe Pace and the Colorado Mass Choir.

While Jasson cites both his father and brother, Tarell Martin, as critical influences on his playing style and, he is adamant about the continued development of acquired techniques, his playing extends beyond grooves and rolls. Outreach lies at the center Martin's heart: "My overall goal is to affect as many people, especially young people, through my music in a positive way. To also use the knowledge I have gained through my music and doors it has opened for me to help others reach their goals musically." Jasson Martin is a man of both skill and substance but it is his generosity of spirit that has destined him for greatness.
