"The hardest-working drummer in Chicago." - WXRT 93.1FM


"Melodies rule, and many moments are flush with acoustic instruments and multiple harmony work that reflects the warmer, earlier period of the Band." - Chicago Sun-Times


Boston-born, Chicago-based drummer/singer/songwriter GERALD DOWD has spent the last 30+ years playing with some of the best musicians locally and beyond: decades on the road and in the studio with Grammy-nominated artists Robbie Fulks and Justin Roberts, drumming and singing on hundreds of recording sessions with the likes of Nora O'Connor and Mavis Staples, working with such legendary producers as Steve Albini and Brian Deck, while also releasing albums of his original material. His new album "Father's Day" was released on August 4th, 2023 on Pee Wee League Records.
