Eddie Fisher

PERFORMS WITH: OneRepublic



About the Artist

OneRepublic has had 7 multi-platinum singles in just 3 albums, To date, the band has sold 3.5 mil albums, with 27 million singles and counting. 2011/12 OneRepublic performed more TV shows than any band in the world, from Ellen to Leno, The Today Show to GMA, from American Idol to Dancing with the Stars. OneRepublic has continuously been one of the most televised 'bands' globally year after year.

Fisher has contributed to over 20 albums over the course of his music career, playing for the likes of Adele, Chris Cornell, Kelly Clarkson, James Morrison, Eric Valentine, and has toured with John Mayer, JBJ, Maroon 5, and U2 among others.

Fisher, a left-handed drummer, learned to play on a right-handed drum set. He now uses an ambidextrous setup with a 16 inch floor tom on the right and 14 inch on the left, with a 12 inch rack tom in the middle. "When I'm behind a kit," says Fisher, "I don't want to look at it as a left handed kit or a right handed kit. This set up allows me to move anywhere at anytime."

Eddie plays a Gretsch USA Custom and New Classic kit, when asked why he has chosen to partner with Gretsch Drums his answer is simple; “Tone.. with my style and the way I use the toms to voice or highlight different aspects of a song, I needed a tom that would give me the sound I was looking for, Gretsch kits provide that for me night after night.”



Influences

My Father, Taylor Hawkins, Dave Grohl, and old school Hip Hop
