Bill Wysaske has cut his teeth with some serious jazz & big band musicians, including Grammy award winner, Norah Jones; Randy Brecker, Steve Tyrell, Michael Bublé, Christian McBride, The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and the legendary Count Basie Orchestra.
Raised in Seattle, Bill was lucky enough to be introduced to artistic music at a young age thanks to his sister Amanda's brilliant ear and nurturing hand. This early introduction set his musical talent into motion and by the age of ten Bill had developed his love affair with jazz. Local music organizations soon introduced him to Big Band Jazz, an education that played a considerable role in changing his life when he received a four-year scholarship to the renowned University of North Texas to study under the highly revered teacher, Ed Soph.
After a further stint at the prestigious Henry Mancini Institute in Los Angeles, Bill Wysaske sharpened his skills through numerous sessions before landing the drum stool with the multi-platinum Warner Bros. artist, Canadian crooner, Michael Bublé.
Whilst Bill Wysaske spent most of 2001 criss-crossing the United States on tour with Steve Tyrell, a then little-known Michael Bublé & Grammy award winning producer David Foster were holed up in Los Angeles recording with two of the finest drummers in the world today – Vinnie Colauita and J.R. Robinson. But when the time came to tour behind the album it was Bill Wysaske who got the call.
A true showman entertains. Bill Wysaske plays with pizzazz, combining his obvious enthusiasm for the art form with his creative fire for the instrument. His drumming is smooth and confident. He displays an uncanny authenticity that fascinates sold-out audiences worldwide, and has recently sparked the interest of international drumming publications and instrument manufacturers around the globe.
