Jason McGerr is the current drummer for the band Death Cab for Cutie. During the fall of 2012 he was playing drums for Tegan and Sara.
McGerr was previously in Krusters Kronomid and Eureka Farm as well as the Seattle jazz trio Rockin' Teenage Combo. McGerr is an instructor at the Seattle Drum School when not playing drums for Death Cab for Cutie. McGerr has also helped and mentored teen indie-pop group Smoosh.
McGerr played on Matt Nathanson's album Some Mad Hope. He is featured on half the tracks of the album, Jason McKenzie played on the other half. McGerr has also lent a hand to Pretty Girls Make Graves on their The New Romance album. This was done while drumming for his other band Neo. He also drummed on Tegan and Sara albums, The Con and Sainthood, and on his Death Cab bandmate Chris Walla's solo album, Field Manual.
McGerr plays Craviotto drums, Remo Drumheads, Paiste cymbals (their Twenty series), Vic Firth drumsticks, and Drum Workshop pedals and hardware.
In June 2007, McGerr opened the doors to his own recording studio, Two Sticks Audio, located in Seattle, WA – where Smoosh, Barcelona, Only Human, Moros Eros, Grand Archives, David Bazan, Mark Kozelek, Matt Cameron of Pearl Jam, Tegan and Sara, and Death Cab for Cutie—amongst others—have spent time recording.
After the opening of his studio, McGerr began working with Propellerhead, specifically Hayden Bursk of Drummerheads on an expansion pack for Reason 4. It's been dubbed "The Jason McGerr Sessions", and it is available as a ReFill from the propellerheads website and as a stand-alone from the Drummerheads website.
Speaking of McGerr in 2003, Benjamin Gibbard notes that he "definitely believe[s] this will be the last drummer we'll ever have. It's kind of come full circle. It makes more sense having him than it has anyone else that's ever played with us."
