Remy Morritt is an increasingly in-demand force for drumming in the Seattle music scene. With a style honed from nearly 20 years of playing and over 10 years of professional drumming work, his playing has been described as unique, “sensitive” (KNKX), “flowing” (Ted Poor), and “assured, groovy, yet challenging” (Ian Dangla).
Remy finished studying at the University of Washington School of Music in 2017, earning a BM in Jazz Studies studying under Ted Poor, Cuong Vu, and Greg Sinibaldi. While there, he had opportunities to work with jazz greats such as Ben Monder, Ryan Ferriera, and Bill Frisell, and Stomu Takeishi.
Since his graduation, Remy has continued to turn heads in the music community in the Pacific Northwest as a new voice in jazz, experimental, rock, funk, and indie realms. His studio drumming work has also garnered attention and he continues to be a regular call for sessions at Robert Lang Studios, as well as many others.
Remy primarily uses vintage Rogers, Ludwig, and Gretsch drums with Vater sticks to help define his sound.
