“Mark Drummond and Grooveometri” is the nom d’artiste by which Markovic Drummond produces original groove and chill jazz music. A guitarist and producer with a funky, soulful approach to smooth jazz and R&B, Mark honed his style performing in show bands throughout the Midwestern and Southern US.
Since settling in Southern California in the 80s, Mark has been a sideman with several R&B, gospel and smooth jazz groups and produced and remixed several releases for international musicians. He also co-composed and produced the soundtrack to the feature short “Bringing Up BayBay” for Soleil Films.
Mark’s original releases are R&B-inflected smooth jazz with plenty of old-school funk accoutrements: 2007’s “Six Strings, One Love”; “2 Smooth 4 Words”, a 2008 collaboration with keyboardist Daniel A. Nelson; “Chilloutronica” (2009), an experimental/ambient R&B excursion; and a smooth jazz and noveau-holiday CD “Yuletronica” (2009), all of which are available worldwide on iTunes.
