Born in 1992, Jerrod ‘J-rod’ Sullivan grew up in a family who loved listening to music. By the time he was two, J-rod was drumming along to songs on kitchen pots and pans. Through church and school, he worked on his music – participating in bands and teaching himself guitar and production. J-rod made it his number one priority, practicing for hours every day.
By 2006, J-rod had begun posting drum cover videos to YouTube and was starting to build a fan base. He went on to study music performance at the Atlanta Institute of Music, graduating in 2012 – and he joined the band The 4 Korners in 2013. Today, J-rod’s an unquestionably talented drummer, as well as a programmer, arranger, and producer: he does it all, and then some.
