Drummer Brandon Laliberte' / Bio

Brandon Laliberte has been playing the drums since the age of 12.
His fascination with the instrument began at a much earlier age.
Brandon constantly watch Led Zeppelin's "Song Remains The Same", and was immediately drawn to the one they called "Bonzo"(John Bonham). Brandon had found his calling.
Brandon's first drumming experience, was with a local marching group "The Children Of Light", in Minneapolis Minnesota.
Led by Maurice Clark, Brandon began to learn the fundamentals of drumming, and performed in summer festivals in Minneapolis's inner city.
While sneaking out of math and/or a science class or two, Brandon would head down to the drum department, where he was introduced to the drum kit by Mr. Clark. "Brandon's instincts around the kit were totally unexpected" Says Mr.Clark.
At the age of 14,Brandon bought his first kit, with the money he'd saved from a summer job. Brandon's first band experience began in high school. Seducted played and appeared in many local school talent shows throughout high school,and a few of Minneapolis's local "Rock" clubs. At 16, Brandon was filling in with some of Minneapolis's local heavy weight cover band acts,and building a reputation among many local musicians.
In 2002 Brandon was introduced to drummer William Berg, while in a mutual recording studio, at a time when Brandon felt he had hit a dead end with his level of learning. With Mr.Berg's insight and vast knowledge of drumming, Brandon then searched out the guidance of Drummer Gordy Knudtson, with a new vision in sight. Gordy's technique's and guidance have opened up endless learning possibilities for Brandon.
In 2004,Brandon joined the band Countach. Brandon has recorded 3 albums with the band, "Gasoline" in 2005,and "Frozen Waters" in 2006 and "As The Crow Flies in 2007, and has performed numerous Minneapolis shows,midwest tours and a full east coast tour in 2006. Countach has many dates/tours scheduled, for Countach's latest release: "As The Crow Flies".
Countach has founded their own indie label in 2007, Rock Mafia Records, with daily operations run by Brandon.
With numerous studio recording credits,radio and television commercials, Brandon continues to pursue work as an independent recording artist, with artist's in studio,live and touring.
In between projects,Brandon currently runs his own webcast production company: Chaos-N-Motion.
In the future, Brandon's goals are to teach his art, and explore the possibility's of opening a recreation center in Minneapolis's inner city for the city's youth to engage in musical experiences.
