Meinl Cymbals is extremely proud to welcome Robert 'Sput' Searight to its family of cymbal artists.
Sput is a legend to those who know him. Just his answer when asked what the highlights of his career have been so far tells you a lot about Sput and how killer his drumming has to be: 1. Winning a Grammy Award 2. SuperBowl 2010 in Miami w/Timberland, Jo Jo, and Justin Timberlake 3. Storytellers w/Snoop Dogg.
Sput is being recognized more and more for his outstanding work with Snarky Puppy, a group that has been hailed as being a part of the New Face of Jazz. To have your mind thoroughly blown, check out the DVD/CD packages 'Tell Your Friends' and 'Ground Up,' live projects that were recorded and filmed in front of intimate and small audiences set in recording studios.
'Tell Your Friends' and the buzz that it generated laid the foundation for the release of 'Ground Up' to become one of the most anticipated Jazz releases of 2012. When it hit, it debuted at #3 on the iTunes Jazz charts.
