My name is Dropjaw Bertone. I am a professional songwriter and performing musician from Gainesville, Florida. I own and operate my recording studio The Droperating Room where I have written and produced 25 of my own solo albums where I play all instruments and sing all vocals.
I began my musical career at age 6 when I began playing drums with my father's band in local clubs and restaurants in town. He and I developed into a full time duo act called The Killer B's. As I taught myself more instruments I began playing them all at the gigs. We still perform 3-5 nights a week as The Killer B's. But my solo work is a separate career. I am available and do work as a session player for artists who may need a harmony vocalist, or as an instrumentalist (bass, drums, rhythm guitar, keyboard, drums, percussion). But I don't read sheet music or charts. My main focus is my songwriting and I write every day without exception. I hope my songs and/or my services will be required by someone. Thank you!
