THE STOIC DRUMMER is a collection of axioms relating the philosophy of Stoicism to the practice of drumming composed of crisp, universal quotes, mantras and meditations.

By drummer and author José Medeles.

Softcover, 128 pages.

Foreword by Billy Martin (Medeski, Martin & Wood)

“Stoicism is a practical philosophy that really just asks the question: What is the good life? How do you live? How do you be an internal hero in your own story? ”


“THE STOIC DRUMMER has become an integral part of my drumming library. Whether consumed cover to cover, or one page at a time, it is an inspiring reminder to always approach the instrument with gratitude and honesty.” – MARK GUILIANA (Beat Music/David Bowie)

“THE STOIC DRUMMER is the most important kind of book there is because it exposes an entirely new audience of drummers to the concepts and ideas of Stoicism and Philosophy at large. This is the match that is capable of starting a roaring fire inside someone who may not have otherwise had the opportunity.” – DAVE ELITCH (Mars Volta/Justin Timberlake/Teacher)

“THE STOIC DRUMMER takes the best wisdom of the ancient world and applies it to the art of drumming.” – RYAN HOLIDAY (Author)

“Let this wonderful book be the guide for us all to get on with ourselves as drummers and live happily, no matter the circumstances.” – BILLY MARTIN (Medeski, Martin & Wood/Author/Artist)
