Joe Richmond

PERFORMS WITH: Churchill


About the Artist

I am a drummer, engineer, and record producer based out of Denver Colorado and drummer for the band Churchill. I have been playing drums for 15 years. I graduated from full sail university in 2005 with a degree in recording arts and have been making records in Denver ever since. I've played on, produced, and recorded every record that Churchill has released to date and we are currently on tour in Europe as main support for P!nk.

We asked... Why Gretsch?

Have always loved the sound of big 70s and 80s gretsch drums. When I had enough money to buy my first drum kit I bought a new gretsch kit and was blown away with the sound in such an inexpensive drum kit. Since then I found a late 70s gretsch kit and have never looked back. Huge and awesome sounding.
