Eric Ching @ericchingdrums



Eric Ching is a jazz drummer and composer currently residing in Los Angeles, CA. He plays music with a tremendous amount of purpose and is infinitely creative in the way he manages color and shape.

With his compositions, he aims to explore new territory while channeling the spirits of McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, and Kenny Garrett. His pieces all have a searching quality where he isn't quite sure what he's looking for, but he'll know when he's found it. He yearns for the unexpected and his songs gradually unfold like a Tarantino movie.

Eric went to New York University for Music Education where he studied under Ron McClure (renowned jazz bassist) and Sean Statser (NYU Percussion).

Some of the people he has played with are Robbie Laws (award winning blues guitarist), George Colligan (renowned jazz pianist), Anna Crumley (Grammy winning vocalist), Reggie Houston (Fats Domino Band), Ben Rice (award winning blues guitarist), Jennifer Keith (jazz vocalist and Las Vegas headliner)


I play straight ahead through modern jazz as well as write my own music. My compositions all sound pretty modern and each one has some quirk or peculiarity that makes it unique.
