Yamaha Drums Welcomes Carrington Brown of H.E.R. to the Company's Legendary Artist Roster
BUENA PARK, Calif. (February 21, 2019) — Yamaha Drums today announced the signing of Carrington Brown, the Metro D.C.-based studio and live drummer for GRAMMY-winning artist, H.E.R., and many others.
On top of traveling around the world with H.E.R. for sold-out shows, festivals and television performances, Carrington has toured with artists such a Jordan Knight of NKOTB, K. Michelle and Sebastian Mikael. Additionally, he has quickly carved out his path as a production manager, musical director, producer and session player for major R&B and hip-hop recording artists such as Teyana Taylor, Dej Loaf, Justine Skye and many more.
Carrington's kit of choice is the Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple, which offers the playability of rich and clear tones across a full dynamic range, aesthetics and its ability to withstand the rigorous demands of touring. To enhance his live performance, he will be playing the Yamaha DTX-MULTI 12 electronic percussion pad and DTX XP-80 electronic drum pads as well as using the HEXRACKII, for his hardware.
Carrington learned to play drums while attending his local church, beginning at the age of two. Through dedication and persistent focus, he graduated from his high school and was awarded a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston, paving the path for his successful career.
"The consistency and quality of Yamaha acoustic drums and electronic percussion allow me to perform at the highest level," said Brown. "With my busy tour schedule, having a durable and reliable drum set and hardware is crucial; I couldn't be happier to be a part of this team."
Carrington recently played with H.E.R., winner of the Best R&B album and R&B performance accolades, at the 2019 GRAMMY Award show. He can be found on tour this spring with H.E.R. across America and Europe.
