Known for his touch, versatility and musical approach, jazz drummer Steve Fidyk has earned national and international acclaim as an artist, author and columnist. With his second album as a bandleader, aptly titled Allied Forces (2016), Fidyk has gathered together a powerful lineup and has succeeded in pushing his hard hitting melodic message to the front lines.
Fidyk currently serves on the jazz studies faculty at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and as a consultant for Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington Program. He has also authored several drum method books and DVD’s for Mel Bay and Alfred Publications. As a columnist, Fidyk contributes regularly to Modern Drummer Magazine, and Teaching Music Magazine.
“His cleanly swung ride cymbal beat and articulate, artful punctuations are pure straight-ahead, while his soloing occasionally recalls modern masters like Dave Weckl and Steve Gadd.” -Downbeat Magazine
