"The G1 Snare drumhead is reliable and allows all the wonderful tones of the snare drum to sing. I also like the amount of coating on the head. It's perfect for brush playing."

"My EQ4 bass batter head offers a warm round sound with the option of an articulate attack."

   



ABOUT ALLISON MILLER

NYC-based drummer/composer/teacher Allison Miller engages her deep roots in improvisation as a vehicle to explore all music.

Described by critics as a "Modern Jazz Icon in the Making," Miller has been named Top 20 Jazz Drummers in Downbeat Magazine and her composition, "Otis Was a Polar Bear," is included on NPR's list of The 200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women+. Miller, a three time Jazz Ambassador for the U.S. State Department, is Monterey Jazz Festival's 2019 Artist in Residence, alongside Derrick Hodge. Simultaneously her band, Boom Tic Boom, is celebrating it's 10th anniversary with the release of their 5th album, Glitter Wolf.NPR's Kevin Whitehead says, "All the parts fit together like clockwork on Allison Miller's new album."

The band has toured extensively throughout the US, Europe and Asia as well as being featured on such programs as NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross, Tiny Desk with Bob Boilen, WNYC's Soundcheck and New Sounds with John Schaefer, and Jazz Night in America with Christian McBride. While breaking from leading Boom Tic Boom, Miller focuses on collaborations, co-directing Parlour Game with Jenny Scheinman and Science Fair with Carmen Staaf. Science Fair's debut release is included in the New York Times and L.A. Times Best Jazz of 2018 list. Miller is also a proud member of the critically acclaimed supergroup Artemis, and is the musical director for Camille A. Brown's Ink.

As a side-musician, Miller has been the rhythmic force behind such artists as Sara Bareilles, Ani DiFranco, Natalie Merchant, Brandi Carlile, Toshi Reagon, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Patricia Barber, Marty Ehrlich, Ben Allison, and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Allison teaches at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, Stanford Jazz Workshop, and is the Artistic Director of Jazz Camp West. She has been appointed Arts Envoy to Thailand for her work with Jazz Education Abroad and endorses Yamaha drums, Zildjian cymbals, Vic Firth heads, Evans drumheads and Sunhouse percussion. Glitter Wolf is undeniably accessible, gloriously melodic, and funky as hell.
