BIOGRAPHY

DRUMMER, COMPOSER, LYRICIST

My name is Mick Carazo and I’m a professional drummer based in the beautiful Caribbean Coast of Colombia. I am currently available for collaborations and private classes.

I come from a family of artists; painters, photographers, designers, singers, and writers. I have fed all my life from all artforms, ultimately channeling them into my music.

I appreciate the lyricism of classical literature and poetry, the vibrance of psychedelia, the otherworldliness of the surrealists.
Progressive classic rock is my musical language and biggest influence!

EXPERIENCE

INSTRUMENTALIST, MUSIC THEORY, TEACHER

I have worked as a professional musician for over 10 years. I have experience performing, composing, and writing Colombian folk music, rock, jazz, and others.

I am proficient in piano and guitar, and have provided background and front vocals in many bands I have been a part of. I have enjoyed working with large folkloric ensembles, progressive rock bands, and solo projects. I respect tradition and folklore, and at the same time feel intrigued by projects enriched with an alchemy of experimentation and fusion.

I have studied music theory and the fundamentals of music since my teenage years in conservatories, and later during college. I can write, read and compose music for various instruments and genres. I have also written lyrics in English and Spanish in collaboration with my bandmates.

Music is my full-time job and passion. It is my priority to be the best drummer I can be, but also a reliable professional, always on-time and ready to work with bandmates or music producers, being it at rehearsals, live gigs, or recordings.
