Biography:  

Aaron Harris is an American drummer, best known for his career with Los Angeles, California-based post-metal band Isis. He was with the band from its inception in 1997 to its dissolution in 2010. Since Isis' demise, Harris has become increasingly involved in his career as a Producer/ Mixer, working with such acts as Pelican, Mental Architects, Crone, Jakob, The Jezabels, Mothra, and more. He is also a part-time drum tech for Danny Carey of Tool, and Abe Cunningham of the Deftones. Harris has also toured mixing live sound for Pelican, Jakob, Melvins, and The Jezabels. His early experience in drumming came from his father, who is also a drummer. Harris would play along to Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Emerson, Lake & Palmer and The Police, and has reached his current level of proficiency without any lessons or formal training. He has, however, received some tuition with the tabla, from Aloke Dutta, at the recommendation of Tool's Danny Carey. Melvins and Neurosis are also direct influences on his and Isis' sound. He cites Bill Bruford as an influence on his later material, having been introduced to his work through Danny Carey. Harris' first band was in a band named Loga, which he joined whilst in high school. He was given a cassette of Melvins by the band members and asked to emulate the style of their drummer, Dale Crover. His material, he says, �changed [Harris'] life [...] it really shaped me into a whole new drummer.�
