Jarrad Payne

Jarrad graduated from The Elder Conservatorium with first class honours in jazz drumming in 2005, and since then has split his time between performing around Adelaide with the occasional international tour and engineering in the recording studio. He has been involved with dozens of recordings produced at the humble ‘Studio Concrète’ for the past six years and has recently become a founding member of the much more impressive ‘Wizard Tone Studios’. Recent musical endeavors include playing percussion at Glastonbury with the Shaolin Afronauts, recording and mixing Satan’s Cheerleaders’ second critically acclaimed LP, releasing instrumental hip hop duo voiceROM’s 21st EP, touring Australia with the musical ‘Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life’, composing for the Zephyr String Quartet and two European tours with Ronnie Taheny.
