Chris Ward has been playing the drums since he could get his hands on them. As the baby of five children, his parents couldn't afford drums lessons so he did what any aspiring drummer would do: played pots and pans and taped paper plates to the walls and taught himself. After graduating from paper plates, and going through a guitar phase, Chris began playing drums in college and has never looked back since.

He formed Pattern is Movement with his childhood friend and they have been playing since 2001. He has also had the pleasure to play with such notable musicians as St. Vincent, Questlove and the Roots crew and Strand of Oaks.
