Adam David Deitch (born April 25, 1976) is a Grammy-nominated American record producer and drummer based in Denver, Colorado. He is the drummer for the bands Lettuce, Break Science, and The Adam Deitch Quartet, and has worked in the hip hop, funk, electro, pop, and jazz genres. He has collaborated with renowned artists like 50 Cent, Talib Kweli, John Scofield, and Ledisi.

He was nominated for the 2010 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album for writing and producing two songs on Ledisi's album Turn Me Loose as part of the Fyre Dept. production team.[1] He was also nominated for the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album for Lettuce's album Elevate.

In 2014, Deitch started his own record label, Golden Wolf Records, through which he's released music from his solo project (Adam Deitch) and The Adam Deitch Quartet (Adam Deitch - Drums // Wil Blades - Organ // Eric “Benny” Bloom - Trumpet // Ryan Zoidis - Saxophone).
