In a male dominated rock world, Sarah Tomek stands as a rhythmic anomaly. Sarah’s dynamic style enhances an impressive understanding of musical arrangement and the compositional process, giving her an original image and competitive edge that most drummers don’t see in a lifetime of playing.
Born and raised in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Sarah Tomek culls her rich background from her father, whose own music was an inspirational force in her life. Sarah began her drumming career in her early teens, becoming a club staple at world famous venues such as The Stone Pony. By the time she was 20, she was already well known as a recording studio veteran, fusing the stylistic thunder of John Bonham and Adam Deitch with the bebop styled groove of Art Blakey and earning a valued reputation among some of rocks biggest names. This reputation has lead to her playing with various rock legends like Lance Larson (Lord Gunner) as well as mega stars like Jon Bon Jovi.
Sarah can currently be seen pounding the drums across the nation with American country artist, Maggie Rose. She has logged countless miles on the road, playing dates all over the United States and Europe, as well as main stages at the prestigious CMA festival in Nashville, Stagecoach Festival in California, SXSW Conference in Austin, Texas and the CMJ Festival in New York.
She has recorded drums with several artists and groups including Gedeon Luke, Glen Burtnik, Jerzy Jung, Cavalier Rose, Michael Askin, Ben Franklin, Danny White, Days Awake, and Lance Larson.
Sarah uses Paiste Cymbals, Vic Firth Sticks, and District Drum Company snare drums.
