Sometimes being an incredibly talented musician is only half the battle when you want to make it into the music industry. Drummer Tom Brechtlein’s rise to success is the classic tale of hard work, perseverance and self-promotion. From his big break of landing a steady gig with Chick Corea in 1978, he has gone on to perform with some heavyweights, such as Wayne Shorter, Al Dimeola, Jean Luc Ponty, Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, Christopher Cross and many others. Over the past eight years, Brechtlein has toured extensively with Kenny Loggins and has also found a new niche with teaching drums and percussion. Inside MusiCast is pleased to welcome Tom Brechtlein.
