Darryn Farrugia | Zildjian Drum Set Artist

Darryn Farrugia


I began playing the drums at an early age thanks to my dad - also a drummer - who encouraged me by buying me my first drumkit and a handful of Sandy Nelson records at the age of 5. Some of the artists I’ve played behind include Tom Jones, Trisha Yearwood, Joe Cocker, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter, Randy Crawford, Roger Daltry, Jackson Browne, Thelma Houston, Petula Clarke, Keb-Mo, Hugh Jackman and Olivia Newton John to name a few. I’ve authored two instructional books – Groove Perspectives and The Groove Perspectives Play-along in addition to my solo album ‘Seeds’.
