The Author

TODD MEEHAN is an American percussionist and founder of Liquidrum. He has spent the majority of his professional life performing and teaching. During the formative years of his musical youth he dreamed and aspired to be a great many things—rock drummer, solo marimbist, orchestral percussionist, and timpanist. Several years into his career Todd awoke to the realization that he was in fact doing exactly the thing he wanted to do—making refreshingly new music with friends and colleagues around the country. As it turned out, he found himself happily playing drum set, marimba, timpani, and everything in between in all the ways he never knew he wanted.

Todd founded Liquidrum as a way to break out of the oftentimes hyper-niche existence we all find ourselves in when we fail to get our heads above the treetops and look around a bit. It turns out we all have a lot more in common than we might think.
