Roderick Breland is a native of Gulfport, Mississippi, where he began playing the drums at an early age. By the age of 12 years old, Roderick was a full time musician at First Missionary Baptist Church of Hansboro in Gulfport, Mississippi. Roderick also played with various choirs around the Gulf Coast, including The United Male Chorus and The Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Choir. Roderick also shared the stage with the Gospel Keynotes, while he played with the opening act for this concert. Roderick credits his passion for the drums to his father and several other great drummers. At an early age, his father purchased a drum set and introduced him to gospel and funk music. This sparked a major hunger for the skill, and Roderick began practicing the drums. Roderick continues to perform with Jazz By Moonlight, One with the Bullet, and other artists around Metro Atlanta. He also plays at a local Church in Atlanta, Georgia. With the major hunger for skill still embedded in his soul, Roderick continues to utilize his talent and someday anticipate becoming a full time musician.
