About Me

Tillmann Schürfeld is a drummer, percussionist, arranger and composer. He grew up in Germany deeply routed in Pop, Rock and Western classical music. At the age of 18, he decided to concentrate on modern drums within various styles of music.  

As a pop musician, he learned from prestigious teachers and personalities like Rudi Marhold, Simon Gattringer and Claus Hessler.

In projects with various pop artists, he performed throughout Germany and all across Europe.
Beside working as a touring musician and musical director, producing and songwriting is another important part of his work. He recorded, arranged and co-produced numerous Single, EP and album productions.

His modern playing is influenced by solid and strong grooves. His approach is to reflect, emphasize or contrast the message of the music.

Tillmann gained his first impressions and experiences of Indian classical music as a student of Bernhard Schimpelsberger, a percussionist and composer based in London, since May 2018. Through Schimpelsberger, Tillmann got the opportunity to become a student of Padmashree Taal Yogi Pt. Suresh Talwalkarji, one of the most renowned Tabla and rhythm maestros in India. Since February 2019 he studies under his Guru’s guidance to learn Indian rhythm concepts ('laya'/'taal'), translation of 'Tabla language' on drums and storytelling through rhythm.

During his time in India he attended numerous workshops, masterclasses and concerts throughout the west of India.

In summer 2019 Tillmann made his debut with “ANAHAD”. The project unifies the two worlds of Indian classical and Western pop music and offers a unique combination of dance, harmony, melody and rhythm.

Since the lockdown in March 2020 he works full-time as a recording artist, engineer and producer.
