Tin Drum was born in the early 90s when the husband and wife team, Burleigh Drummond and Mary Harris began their collaboration on a Taskam 8-track in the heart of Panorama City. Both brought a wealth of musical background from diverse acts such as Ambrosia, Pink Floyd, and Jimmy Buffett. An exciting collection of songs were created resulting in their 1st CD, “Real World”. Some of the musicians who enhanced this CD were Mick Mahan, Mike Hoffmann, Marco Mendoza, Jim Sitterly, Craig Stull, Brie Howard-Darling, and Chris Moestert. The first single, “Surrender” was produced by the legendary Alan Parsons, and went on to do very well at radio. The CD, “Real World” was very well received and garnered many fine accolades.
“Small Parade,” the 2nd CD followed in 2002, which again was well received, and won many awards in the independent market, such as “Luck of The Irish” which won Best Instrumental from “Just Plain Folks”. Enhancing the group on this release was the addition of Larry Treadwell on guitar, mandolin, and vocals, and Dave Darling on guitar. It also featured the first appearances of their children Micky Drummond (Burleigh McDowall Drummond) and Sierra Rose Drummond on vocals.
These first two CDs drew attention to the production and arrangement skills of Tin Drum and soon Burleigh, Mary, and Larry were busy producing other artists as well. This led to the formation of Tin Drum Music, a label designed to promote the artists produced by Tin Drum.
In 2008, Tin Drum released its 3rd CD, “Where Have You Been?” This CD includes Kevin Longden, Will MacGregor, John Davis, and Larry Treadwell and features some live favorites as well as some original songs by the Drummond children, Micky and Sierra. Currently, as always, Tin Drum is busy working on new material as well as a steady production schedule of various artists.
