After learning piano and drums before he was 10, Calvin got busy playing in as many ensembles as possible with genres ranging from classical orchestra to math rock. While attending the Denver School of the Arts, Calvin was able to meet like-minded musicians and was playing in a variety of bands and ensembles all around Denver while still in High School. After high school, Calvin obtained a degree in Jazz Studies with a classical music minor at the University of Oregon in Eugene.
Since graduating, Calvin has been busy teaching and playing as a freelance drummer in the Denver area (as well as some brief national tour stints), and has played some notable local venues such as The Ogden, The Bluebird, Fiddler’s Green, Paramount Theatre, and Dazzle.
Some of Calvin’s favorite bands and artists are Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, James Brown, Butcher Brown, and Lawrence. When not making music, Calvin enjoys a wide range of outdoor activities, such as Skiing, Biking, and Hiking. His favorite Christmas movie is Die Hard.
