Sánchez does what all artists, regardless of genre or medium, aspire to do: he expertly uses the tools at his command to communicate, sending a complex yet clear message.
Drummer and composer Antonio Sánchez has been playing the drums since he was five years old. He cut his teeth in Mexico’s rock, jazz, and Latin scenes in his early teens before recording and performing with such jazz superstars as Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, and Gary Burton.
Sánchez’s popularity soared in 2014, when he scored filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman. He won a Grammy for his kinetic, percussion-based score, and he has since won three more as a bandleader. He has also won three Drummer of the Year awards from Modern Drummer—two in the jazz category and one in the fusion category. Sánchez has been featured on the covers of Modern Drummer, DownBeat, JazzTimes, and Drum!.
In August, Warner Bros. Records released SHIFT (Bad Hombre Vol II). The much-anticipated recording features Sánchez collaborating with such artists as Trent Reznor, Lila Downs, Meshell Ndegeocello, Dave Matthews, and more.
