Bio

Richard Medek is a drummer, engineer, and producer. He spent his formative years in Lafayette, LA; Tucson, AZ; and Nashville, TN before eventually settling down in Minneapolis in 2008. His resume is equally all over the map — he’s appeared on rock tours (John Doe, Alternate Routes), Americana albums (Hacienda Brothers, Kelly Pardekooper), ambient cacophony (Winthorp, his side project with Teddy Morgan and Carl Broemel), and everything in between.
