Abe Fogle has been touring around the world with various artists for more than 16 years. His heart-felt backbeat and "shake-your-body" groove have been heard and danced to all over Great Britain, Europe, and Japan with Kelis, D'Angelo, Kool And The Gang, and Guy, to name a few.
His 2000 tour was a smashing success, which has led to his current position as Musical Consultant/Drummer with Virgin artist, Kelis. He has recorded with Kelis, Chico Debarge, Yoshiko Kishino, Misha Tsiganov, Kool & The Gang, KC and the Sunshine Band, the Ensoniq Sample Library, and more.
"I just like playing the pocket" says Abe, which explains the demand for his solid, reliable groove. His field is not limited to funk, however, because of his studies at both Rutgers University and The New School For Social Research.
Abe Fogle has also toured with such jazz artists as Phillippe Saisse, Kenny Garrett, Milt Hinton, George Coleman, and Jon Hendricks.
In 2003 Abe began recording and performing with Jazz guitarist
Ronny Jordan. He can be heard on Ronny's CD 'After 8'(N-Coded
Music). He also recorded with jingle house great Peter Fish several tracks for the New York Yankees Promotional commercial and for the CBS Morning Show.
In 2004 Abe recorded a CD with Organist extraordinaire Mel Davis (N-Coded Music) entitled 'Revealed'.
In the same year he continued his history of performing with Alex Bugnon by touring with him for his CD 'Southern Living' (Arabesque).
Early 2005 Abe Fogle was touring with Matchbox Twenty lead vocalist Rob Thomas in promotion for his hit solo CD, "Something To Be".
Drummer Gerald Heyward, who played on "Something To Be", was already committed to finish a tour with Beyonce and Destiny's Child, and highly recommended Abe for the gigs.
