About Mark Guiliana

Mark Guiliana is an acclaimed drummer, composer, educator, producer and founder of the independent record label, Beat Music Productions. He is also featured on David Bowie's final release - Blackstar.

His forward-thinking, conceptual approach to the instrument is also featured in Mehliana, the electric duo featuring Brad Mehldau on keyboards and synthesizers. The group´s highly anticipated debut album, Taming the Dragon (Nonesuch), was released in early 2014.

Over the past decade, Guiliana's extensive touring has taken him across six continents with artists including Donny McCaslin, Tim LeFebvre, Jason Lindner, Gretchen Parlato, Avishai Cohen, Lionel Loueke, and his own groups, Beat Music and Heernt. He has also appeared on more than 30 recordings and taught clinics and master classes across the globe - including PASIC and Drum Fantasy Camp.

Still in his mid-thirties, Guiliana, recognized by the New York Times as "a drummer around whom a cult of admiration has formed," has earned international acclaim for his innovative and creative style.

Time Out London sums him up perfectly:

"What happens when you add hard bop drum masters Elvin Jones and Art Blakey to a 1980s Roland 808 drum machine, divide the result by J Dilla and then multiply to the power of Squarepusher? Answer: Mark Guiliana."
