Robert Schoosleitner is a musician based out of Salzburg, Austria. He got his first drum at the age of 6 while getting his first lessons at the local music school. In his teenage years he won several national prizes in classical percussion before he shifted his focus to the drum set.
After graduating with a two year diploma from the world famous Drummers Collective in New York, he quickly established himself as an energetic, tasteful and versatile drummer in different styles, both live and in the studio, influenced and shaped by his intensive studies with the Collective's renown teachers. He became known for subtle balancing and pushing the elements of sound, groove, technique and emotion.
Currently Robert is a full member of the indie pop group Noyoco, in the studio and live as drummer, composer and producer, experimenting and developing an expertise for hybrid drumming, including Ableton Live and setups with pads, triggers and other electronics. He is also the drummer for the fusion jazz group Mashed Peas and has worked with Oz Noy, Jacob Sacks, Elias Stemeseder, Gary Versace, Jon Davis, Lincoln Goines, Evan Gregor, Francesco Beccaro, Been Obscene, Colour Haze, Sharron Levy and many others.
