Jon Mueller



Mueller has been a drummer and percussionist since 1985. Covering a variety of genres and techniques over the years, his aim has been to use drums, percussion and sound as a way to express something felt but not easily defined. Audiences throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Japan, and the United Kingdom have described his performances as ‘cathartic’, ‘intense,’ and ‘meditative’. Notable solo performances have taken place at the Guggenheim Museum, New Museum, SXSW, Alverno Presents, Hopscotch Fest, and Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal.

From 2013-15, Mueller created and directed the multi-disciplinary project Death Blues. From music recordings and performances, to writing, video, dance, and more, the aim of the project was to encourage focus on each moment and build understanding for what is important in one’s life. The project issued four critically acclaimed recordings. Non-fiction was cited as one of the ’20 Best Avant Albums of 2014′ by Rolling Stone. Ensemble, created with multi-instrumentalist William Ryan Fritch, was featured on NPR’s ‘First Listen’.

In the late 1990s/early 2000s, Mueller was the drummer in the bands Pele and Collections of Colonies of Bees, both of which released numerous records and toured internationally. He later joined with bandmates from these groups and vocalist Justin Vernon of Bon Iver to form Volcano Choir. Volcano Choir’s 2013 record Repave debuted at number 40 on the Billboard charts. The group performed on the NBC show Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, experienced multiple sold out tours in the US, Canada, and Europe, and performed at international festivals such as Primavera and Osheaga.

He has peformed and recorded with Olivia Block, Duane Pitre, Jozef Van Wissem, Rhys Chatham, Jason Kahn and James Plotkin.
