A student of the drummer Ed Blackwell and the writer Annie Dillard while at Wesleyan University, Drury’s early playing experiences included performances with Wadada Leo Smith, John Tchicai, and Brad Mehldau, as well as forays into street theater, performance art, and a series of drum solos performed and photographed outdoors in landscapes in nine western States. Since then he has performed in 25 countries and on nearly 50 recordings as a soloist, leader, and collaborator with a wide range of musicians including Myra Melford, Mark Dresser, Wayne Horvitz, Andrea Neumann, Christine Abdelnour, Michel Doneda, and many lesser known greats. In addition to leading Content Provider Drury is a member of the cooperative groups 1032K (with Frank Lacy and Kevin Ray), the Brooklyn Infinity Orchestra, and Conjure.

As an educator he has led workshops from Central American villages to Ivy League graduate schools, museums to housing projects, and in 2000 led a six-month “Millennium Project” residency with the Oneida Nation on their reservation in Wisconsin. Drury also curates the Soup & Sound House Concert Series in his home in Brooklyn where he has presented and performed with musicians from five continents including Jaap Blonck, Agusti Fernandez, and many of tonight’s performers. On February 26 at the Lincoln Center Atrium he and 1032K will premiere The Hard Time Killing Floor Suite, an extended work exploring the music of Delta Blues legend Skip James, commissioned by the Lincoln Center Atrium.
