Daru Jones is one of the most respected drummers of his generation. Born in Michigan to two professional musicians, he began playing the drums at the age of four. Though he got his start in the church, Jones has been influenced by musicians from a wide range of genres. These eclectic musical tastes have carried over into his own career as he has recorded and toured with renowned artists such as Jack White, Talib Kweli, Black Milk, Slum Village, Ski Beatz & The Sensei's, and Jon B. Jones' work as a drummer goes beyond the role of sideman as he also records and tours throughout Europe and North America as a member of the Vienna-based hip hop/jazz trio, THE RUFF PACK. The band recently released their sophomore album, WITH YOU (2013) to much critical acclaim.

Jones is also a sought-after producer who develops talent and releases music through his imprint, Rusic Records, LLC. The Brooklyn, NY-based producer/musician exhibits a unique approach to beat-making by incorporating live drum loops, jazzy samples, and a soulful musicianship into all of his projects. He has created and/or mixed tracks for Kissey Asplund, Muhsinah, Reggie B, AB, Rena, and Eagle Nebula, to name a few.

Jones is currently touring Europe with THE RUFF PACK in support of their recent album and with frequent collaborator, Jon B. He is also preparing for the release of the debut album from his brother/sister duo, Daru & Rena entitled, #HONEY.
