I'm Jai Patel, a musician from London, England. I started playing drums at the end of 2007 and absolutely loved it. I knew straight away I wanted to do this for the rest of my life.
With ‘The Raven Age’ we released our first EP in July 2014 and we’re just about to start recording our first album. ‘Envy Assured’ currently have a mini album in the work that is being finished and should be released this year.
Along with my own band work I have been lucky enough to do some session work for some of my favourite bands. Most recently I played for Rise To Remain on their last ever show when they headlined at Takedown Festival 2014 and also Cypher 16 for their first tour of China in October 2014 that included a show at Shanghai MIDI Festival.
It’s very exciting times with the album recording and touring coming up but what tops it all off is the support of Greiner Kilmer. I’m really thankful and excited to have them on board with me and to work with such a friendly and reliable company is brilliant! Check out my Facebook/Twitter/YouTube/Instagram to see what I’m up to and keep an eye out for my beautiful custom GK kit!
I feel very privileged to be part of the Greiner Kilmer family. Their idea of drummers making drums for other drummers was something I really liked and I feel they are making some of the most beautiful sounding and beautiful looking kits around.
During the process of building my kit with Kaleb, he's always been very helpful, informative and also made me feel very accommodated as they were building my kit. I'm stoked to be a part of the Greiner Kilmer family!
My GK kit setup is: 20x18" bass drum, 10x7 and 12x8 rack toms, 14x14 and 16x16 floor toms, and a 13x6.25 snare.
