DWF 2015 - Robert ‘Sput’ Searight
The new kid on the block. And what a kid he is, too. With Snarky Puppy, his dynamism, unique interplay and deep groove, which he learned in church during the many hours of gospel, unfold: ‘I've been playing the drums for as long as I can remember. I got my first kit when I was four’, he tells Slagwerkkrant. In addition to playing the drums, ‘Sput’ plays keyboards and is a producer. He has played in one or more of these capacities with famous artists such as Celine Dion, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, P. Diddy, Erykah Badu, Timbaland and Justin Timberlake.
