Check out the Tin Drum…

Tin Drum is an ensemble of musicians bringing an invigoration freshness to contemporary music by exploring themes that fall outsite of well-worn trends. This Southern California-based band has released two CDs, Real World (1995) and Small Parade (2001), both capturing the musical passions of the group, presented with intimate, personal style.

The band´s nucleus is the husband-wife team of Burleigh Drummond and Mary Harris, two veterans of American music who continue to thrive with their current project as strong, experienced singing and songwriting partners.

Burleigh Drummond was the founding drummer of Ambrosia, a group that helped define the sound of popular music in the 1970s and 80s, with a string of hits and 5 subsequent Grammy nomonations. Burleigh Drummond wears many musical hats now, playing drums, percussion and acoustic guitar while also providing vocals.

Mary Harris is a singer/songwriter who has honed her skills on the road and in the studio, working with such top acts as Pink Floyd, XTC, Stanley Clarke and Jimmy Buffett. She plays keyboards and provides vocals.

Enhancing the ensemble are Mick Mahan (bass) and Larry Treadwell (guitar and vocals), musicians who embrace and help further define Tin Drum´s musical philosophy. The band also continues to work with music industry stars, like the master producer Alan Parsons, who contributed production assistance on Surrender from their debut release Real World
