John 'JR' Robinson

When it comes to the business of making a hit record, virtually every producer will tell you, "It starts with the drummer." Fortunately for us, it starts with THE drummer.

Known as “the most recorded drummer in history”, John ‘JR’ Robinson joined the AINWM team in September 2004 and has performed on every song in our library of master recordings since.

John began his career in the band Rufus, featuring Chaka Khan. In 1979, he was approached by mega-producer Quincy Jones to play on Michael Jackson's then next release, "Off The Wall". From there, JR has never looked back.

He is the "first call" session drummer in the world today. His outstanding list of credits includes recordings with everyone from Elton John and Eric Clapton to Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand. His discography is a virtual "who's who" of famous artists.

John has also played on a countless number of motion pictures and soundtracks through the years. Notable films on his resume include  “Ghostbusters”, “Man Of Steel”, “Pirates of the Caribbean," “Tower Heist,” “Starsky & Hutch,” “Ladder 49,” “13 Going On 30,” “American Gangster" and “Team America.”
