Australian-born Jared Kneale relocated to Nashville in 2010 and quickly became a highly sought after drummer. Now he’s been added to the expanding roster of artists playing the drums of boutique maker Doc Sweeney.

Kneale has performed and recorded with Grammy Award-winning artists Kacey Musgraves, Rebecca St. James, and Audio Adrenalin, as well as critically acclaimed artists Ben Rector, Mikky Ekko, Dave Barnes, and many others. He is currently touring worldwide with Grammy-nominated Atlantic recording artist Hunter Hayes.

“We’re excited to have Jared as a member of the Doc Sweeney Drums family,” said Steve Stecher, founder of Doc Sweeney Drums. “We look forward to providing drums that will enhance the sound of his extraordinary playing skills. The man has chops!”
