I have been playing since I was 2-3 years old, My father played killer 70's progressive/jam guitar and started me quite early. He was looking to have a "built in" jam drummer I suppose!! … As I got older I started jamming with friends (around the ages 12-14) eventually forming a band at 16 years old. That early band led to another band and then I ultimately started the Absence in 2004 (with Pete, Pat, Jamie and Nick). It was at this point I really started to "up" my practice regime. Heavy amounts of rudiments and drills (Drills for days). My main goal has been fluidity, always trying to "become water". I really respect drummers like Tim Alexander (primus) and Stewart Copeland (the police), as they look effortless while being so concise. That thinking (fluidity) has influenced all aspects of my life. Jeramie Kling is a Drummer, Singer, Producer, Recording engineer, Front of house engineer, Tour manager.
