Israel Hernandez

Gigging and Session Drummer

Israel Hernandez on SoundBetter

Hello, my name is Israel. I'm a professional drummer, pianist, percussionist, composer and arranger. I've been gigging professionally since I was 16 years old, and composing since I was 18 years old.

At the age of 13 I started attending a private performing arts school called ICPA (The Inland Conservatory for the Performing Arts). While there I got a college level education in Music Theory, History, and Technology, as well as college level education in Drums, Percussion, and Piano. My first professional gig was at the Neuehouse on Sunset Blvd, which I played at the age of 16. Since then I've played at multiple other well known venues across Los Angeles, including The Mint, The Hotel Cafe, and The Wiltern. I've also played at The Siren in Morro Bay.
