Joey Coach Hanna
They call him Coach. Born into a musical family with performing traditions spanning generations, his love of all things music took him to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and then onto the road as a touring drummer. Coach has appeared on shows such as The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan OBrian, The Today Show, The View, and Carson Daly. He has recorded, or toured with artists like Gavin Degraw, Carrie Underwood, Bootsy Collins, Bo Bice, Toby Lightman, Len, Brandi Carlile, and many others. His songwriting, arranging, and ability to create tight layers of instrumentation brought him into a series of collaborations, with artists such as platinum selling producer Mike Seifert, Atlantic Recording Artist Toby Lightman, in which he has co-written songs on each of her first two records, Brian Dennis (Gavin Degraw/Dag) and in 2006 produced the new Gibb Droll record named 10 Days. Coach is endorsed by Yamaha Drums, Sabian Cymbals, and Pro-Mark Drumsticks, and IK Multimedia. He owns his own production company and studio, Thunderhoof Productions, where he recently had songs placed for major CD releases that were optioned for television and films.
I'm about to head on tour playing drums for Gavin Degraw, so we'll be playing all over the place.
