YOUR BEST SELF through DRUMMING
Chris Lesso is an expert on optimizing the power of drumming to improve focus, confidence, and self expression. LTR (Life Through Rhythm) is an attitude and way of life, using drumming as a force to reach our fullest potential, and live the art of possibility every day.
Chris began his journey early, drumming and playing piano at the age of 7, and has never looked back. He has studied with world renowned educators Dom Famularo, Jim Chapin, Jim Blackley, and in India with Swapan Chaudhuri. He has traveled the world performing with some of the best in the business, including Wild T & The Spirit, Cavalia Odysseo, and many others.
Combining a fascination of history with pushing the edges of future evolution, Chris leads his own band modus factor, featuring world renowned musicians Brownman Ali (Jay Z, Dave Matthews Band), and Ian DeSouza (Juno Award winning Sisters Euclid). Described as ‘electro ambient bedlam’, modus factor uses improvisation and daring reinvention to create an energized sound all its own, drawing on textures from jazz, electronic, and world music.
A born teacher, Chris takes his LTR (Life Through Rhythm) philosophy around the world to empower musicians, schools, and businesses looking for an edge in using drumming to increase personal empowerment, and elevate synergy within teams, using the power of flow states to rise above the competition.
Chris is endorsed by Sonor Drums, Vic Firth Sticks, Sabian Cymbals, Remo Heads, and Prologix Pads.
