Terence Ervan

Terence Ervan

Terence was born and raised in California. At the age of five Terence began annoying his parents by banging on pots and pans and showing his beginning interests in music (just ask his mom she'll tell ya).

Terence was enrolled in the local music program at the age of eight to learn to read music and play a variety of instruments. Terence continued his education throughout high school and college playing and touring in a large variety of groups such as concert bands, symphonic bands, marching bands, pep bands, jazz ensembles, Drum Corps, and stage Productions.

Heavily influenced by drum and bugle corps and rudimental percussion he began to apply a plethora of styles and rudiments he learned to the drum set.

Now focusing mainly on his drum set-playing Terence began playing with many different bands and styles in the local area and some not so local areas including Funk, Hip-hop, Swing, R&B, Jazz, Latin, Fusion, Country, Rock, Stage Productions, Industrial, Drum & Bass, and Metal. Terence also incorporates electronics, sampling, and drum triggering into his playing. Playing with his current project the Siri Dyal Band allows Terence to incorporate all he has learned into one band.

Influences: Walfredo Reyes Jr., Nissan Stewart, Gorden Campbell, Gregg Bissonette,Dave Weckl, Billy Cobham, Carter Beauford, Johnny Rabb, Gerald Heyward, Mike Portnoy, Akira Jimbo, Marvin” Smitty” Smith, Steve Smith, Aaron Spears, Danny Carey just to name a few.

Testimonial:

“ I love the quality and sound Soultone brings to my playing. The first moment I hit one with a stick I knew they were for me.”
