According to Modern Drummer magazine, Mark Guiliana “may well be at the forefront of an exciting new style of drumming.” The 28-year-old New Jersey native’s unique and un-compromised approach to playing the drums has earned him international acclaim as both a leader and a sideman.
In 2004, Mark created HEERNT, his ‘experimental-garage-jazz’ trio based out of New York. The band’s debut record, Locked In A Basement, was released in the spring of 2006 and was met with praise from critics and musicians alike. Legendary drummer Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson) called the record “the most exuberant, dramatic, beautiful, sassy, genre-busting little outing that I’ve heard since I don’t know when.”
As a sideman, Mark’s longest partnership has come alongside world-renowned jazz bassist Avishai Cohen. He toured all over the world with Avishai from 2003 until 2008 while appearing on six studio records, and a live DVD recorded at the Blue Note in New York City. Mark has also recorded and/or performed with Meshell Ndegeocello, Dhafer Youssef, Wayne Krantz, Matisyahu, Jazz Mandolin Project, Jason Lindner, Brad Shepik, Bobby McFerrin, Tigran Hamasyan, and many more.
Mark is currently working on his debut solo record, which is being co-produced by Meshell Ndegeocello and is due out in early 2010.
Mark plays Yamaha drums, Sabian cymbals, and Vic Firth sticks.
