‘Chris Lesso is a world class expert on optimizing the power of drumming for self expression and peak mindset’
Chris began studying music on the piano at the age of 7, and received his grade 8 in classical piano through the Royal Conservatory at age 12. He began drumming when he was 9, and has never looked back. After gaining experience performing and writing music in various bands, he studied with many world-renowned artists such as Dom Famularo, Jim Chapin and Jim Blackley.
Chris’ unique blend of hard rock, jazz, and world flavored rhythms can be heard with his band modus factor (with Brownman and Ian DeSouza), and has also toured internationally many acts including Cavalia Odysseo and Wild T And The Spirit.
Chris is a proud educator teaching a full roster of students, performing motivational speaking and drum events, and is a guest faculty member at Metalworks Institute. Also a writer, he contributes regularly to Drums Etc and Canadian Musician Magazine, and has designed a goal centered curriculum for his students. Chris is endorsed by Sonor Drums, Evans Heads, Sabian Cymbals and Vic Firth Sticks.
The future holds an ever-improving output of energetic live shows and rhythmically intense recorded work, always drawing from a wide range of influences and styles.
