If there’s any drummer who can talk shop until your ears bleed, it’s Josh Trager. Known as the drummer for the Sam Roberts Band, Josh has been touring international stages for well over a decade now. I was lucky enough to have Josh over at the studio for a great drummer hang. We talked about drums, practicing, our favourite drummers, life on the road and so much more. Watching him play the drums makes it evident that he has studied the pros and has spent time mastering his technique.
There is so much more to Josh Trager than simply being a drummer. In addition to his drumming career, he gets personal about his upbringing, his musical journey, achievements, failures and lessons learned along the way. Josh has a wealth of knowledge and experience in drumming and life that he is happy to share with others in an open-hearted interview with me.
Josh Trager Plays “Who’s That Drummer?”
In the 2nd video Josh and I play a game called “Who’s That Drummer?”. We (and you) will listen to eight 30 second isolated drum tracks. These drums-only tracks are from hit songs by many legendary bands and artists. You would be amazed how recognizable they are. Josh has 30 seconds to guess the song, the artist and who the drummer is in each clip. Can guess the answers before Josh can?
Josh Trager is best known for playing with Sam Roberts Band. Josh endorses Yamaha drums, Sabian cymbals, Regal Tip drumsticks as well as Evans drumheads.
