About Ezra Lipp
Ezra Lipp is an innovative, Bay Area based drummer, composer and educator, who regularly performs with a slew of all star musicians, works as an in demand session musician, has his own teaching practice, leads his own band Magic In The Other, and is the proud creator and host of a music podcast called The Ezra Lipp Hour (More or Less) . He has extensively toured the US and Europe and has worked with many amazing bands and artists representing diverse musical genres including Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead, Melvin Seals and JGB, counter-cultural Iranian superstar Mohsen Namjoo, national folk-soul treasure Sean Hayes and many, many more [see below for a more complete list].
Ezra is a lifelong student of music and earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance and Jazz studies from the University of Vermont in 2005. He has also studied music and percussion from around the globe both in the US and abroad (including West African, North Indian, Afro-Cuban, and more). As a teacher he brings his depth and breadth of rhythmic knowledge and years of professional experience to help others along on a path to find their own creative musical voice and expression.
Ezra’s imaginative approach, accomplished musicianship and refined sensibilities distinguish him as a truly creative contemporary musician and drum artist.
“Ezra Lipp appears and sounds utterly natural, as if each of these varied environments is his organic state as a drummer. He exhibits a steely-eyed, no-holding-back intensity that speaks of an artist that truly gives himself to the moment, open ears craning to catch what the music needs as his body blurs beautifully to tease out the right moves and deliver them right on time. Our gut says Lipp is going to be one of the greats one day, and it’s not going to suck to witness his evolution along the way.” – Dennis Cook, JamBase/Dirty ImpoundMa
