About Ray LeVier
New York-based drummer, Ray LeVier, has been on the music scene touring the world for over 20 years. LeVier’s resume is long and impressive, playing with the likes of Mike Stern, John Abercrombie, Will Lee, and KJ Denhert for 25 years. Coming Ray studied with John Riley, Kim Plainfield, Kenwood Dennard, Jojo Mayer, and Lenny White. But what truly sets him apart is his unique story and the person it’s made him to be.
Touched by the fire, but not consumed by it, LeVier arose, shining brighter than ever. He believes part of his mission in life is to spark courage in others to overcome adversities through a positive attitude and good old-fashioned hard work.
No one’s more consistent than LeVier and his Instagram page is proof that he is King of the Shed. It only makes sense that he would set his sights on a new horizon and begin to write a book to share all that he’s learned along the way so far.
LeVier hopes his personal method – a blend of rudiments, neuroscience, breathing modalities, and Zen spirituality – will inspire drummers and other musicians to flow in the groove, increase their creativity, and have fun in the practice room!
