Jason Tiemann is a New York City-based jazz drummer, where he maintains a busy schedule as a freelance performer and educator. Admittedly drawing influence from the great(s) Philly Joe Jones, Tony Williams, Elvin Jones and Billy Higgins, Tiemann is quickly forging his musical voice on the New York seen by fusing his depth of historical foundation with crisp technique and propulsive, intuitive swing.

Additionally, he has been an artist/clinician for the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz workshop’s since 1998. Before moving to New York City, he was an active component of the Midwest community where he was in constant demand throughout the region as a performer and educator and was afforded the opportunity to accompany numerous jazz luminaries.
Throughout his career, he has performed and or recorded with an astonishing array of musicians including but certainly not limited to, Benny Golson, David Liebman, Harold Mabern, Eric Alexander, Mike LeDonne, Peter Bernstein, Slide Hampton and countless others on the New York seen. Jason is an endorsing artist for Sakae drums, Remo drumheads and Innovative Percussion sticks, mallets and brushes.
