Adam Deitch


Adam Deitch may have been predestined to be a drummer. The son of two professional funk drummers, Adam first picked up his sticks at the age of two. By eight, he was sitting in with his parents' funk band, playing everything from jazz to funk and R&B. Adam was inspired by hip-hop at an early age. His interest in hip-hop sparked production work with his hometown rap crew, The Secret Service. In the early nineties, he was frequently the house drummer for The Nuyorican Poets Cafe in New York City, which backed up then emerging artists, Erika Badu, Mos Def, Company Flow, Mr. Lif and radio personality Bobito "The Barber". Adam further honed his drumming and production skills while attending the Berklee Collage of Music in 1994. There he met many like-minded, driven individuals, with whom he still collaborates to this day. The bands Fatbag, Lettuce, The Wally's House Band, The Formula and numerous other projects evolved from this network in Boston.

In his third year in Boston, he joined the world renowned Average White Band, whom he performed with for the two following years. While touring with AWB, Adam performed alongside many of his heroes including Earth, Wind and Fire, Tower of Power and Chaka Kahn.
After a brief stint with Lettuce at the Wetlands, in NYC, he had the opportunity to play with Miles Davis Alumnus, jazz guitarist John Scofield. Adam joined his band shortly thereafter. He has recorded on John's last two records, both Verve releases, Grammy nominated Uberjam and Up All Night, which he also shares composers credit on many of the tracks. Adam currently resides in New York City focusing on his hip-hop production skills by producing tracks for artists such as: Soulive, Meshell Ndegeocello, Jurassic 5, J-live, D.J Green Lantern, Wordsworth, Benzino, Anthony Hamilton, Daniel Bedingfield, KRS-One, And1 Mix Tape, Breeze Evahflowin, Black Rob and Cam'ron.
