About The Band

Taking their name from an anonymous letter their drummer received from an unappreciative neighbor at the time, Dear Drummer has been having fun and filling venues all over Portland since forming in the winter of 2012. Their unique blend of soul-funk-rock and evolving sound has kept dance floors full and audiences fully engaged.

Lead singer Justin Odom draws listeners in with his smooth vocals and high-energy performance, while the rest of his band mates keep the grooves tight. Diverse and varied, their influences range from Marvin Gaye and Paul Simon, to the Beastie Boys and Tribe Called Quest. The band released its first self titled studio album EP in June 2015 and is going back into the studio soon to record their first full-length LP.
