Jonathan Fortson - Signature Artist
"Best sticks ever!!!! Get you some and Become Immortal!!!!!"
My name is Jonathan Fortson. I’ve been playing the drums for basically all my life-- 30 years to be exact. I grew up in the church playing as little boy to a young teen. My up bringing evolved around music. Basically my whole family either sings or plays an instrument or some sort. Through middle school and high school is where I really developed as not only a drummer, but a musician. As years went by, I joined a few local rock bands here and there that were local and with one of them did a mini tour in the U.S. and recorded an EP. Later on I traveled and recorded for an international Gospel artist named Eddie James. I traveled a lot of the world for 4 years. I later played for and still currently play for Free Chapel as a contracting musician. During that time I’ve also recorded albums and recorded for people like All Nations Worship Assembly Atlanta. The Living Band which I still currently play with, The Ramp in Hamilton Alabama where I currently reside as the staff drummer and drum intstructor, and Josiah Garret and the Colorblind Pilots which has a new album coming out next year of 2022. I’ve been a lot of places and done a lot of thing that I could’ve never imagine doing. God has blessed me to do a lot of things and I aspire to do a lot more in the coming years of my drumming career. I want to say thanks to Scorpion Percussion for not only making great and phenomenal sticks, but also being great friends and what I consider family!! Look forward to doing great things in the coming years.
