Bio

Drummer Howard Alper has long encompassed in his music the myriad experiences and influences of growing up in his native Brooklyn, NYC. He is a career musician whose versatility spans work with original artists, theater, club dates and cover bands.

At the age of 16, Howard started to study drumset and quickly began playing in local bands. An appreciation of Rock, Hip-Hop and Funk led to Howard getting his first break when he began playing with NYC Funk/Rock legends D'TRIPP.

After his tenure with D'TRIPP, Living Colour vocalist Corey Glover tabbed Howard to play drums in his solo project. This association led to Howard collaborating with Corey for his release on LaFace records entitled "Hymns." The critically acclaimed Rock & Soul album was an important step in Howard's professional career as a drummer and songwriter.
