Jeff Sipe is one of the best drummers in the industry and has played with the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jazz Is Dead, Leftover Salmon, and Susan Tedeschi among others.
Sipe is a remarkably flexible drummer who has exhibited great flash and bombast with the Aquarium Rescue Unit and in an expansive power trio with bassist Jonas Hellborg and the late guitarist Shawn Lane, Jeff Sipe is also capable of tastefully swinging support and coloristic textures on the kit, as he demonstrates on his auspicious debut as a leader of his own band Jeff Sipe and The Apartment Projects.
About the trio with Jonas Hellborg and Shawn Lane, Sipe reveils:
"I had been laying the roots with Colonel Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit, and then after that was over, jumping in with Jonas and Shawn made me blossom, and my individual voice came out in the music."
Sipe is also known as a member of the Zambi Corps of Engineers, Susan Tedeschi’s working blues band and appears on the debut recording by Bela Fleck & The Flecktones saxophonist Jeff Coffin.
In April 2005 Jeff Sipe joined The Black Crowes, replacing previous drummer Bill Dobrow.
