Biography

Elmo Lovano is a professional musician, producer, musical director, concert promoter, and entrepreneur whose output has included work with artists Skrillex, MYPET, Christina Perri, Dirty Murdered Birds, Snoh Aalegra, Pluuto, Symphonic Circles, Rob Roy, Paul Oakenfold, Miley Cyrus, Avril Lavigne, Angus and Julia Stone, amongst others, as well as Grammy winning producers such as Rob Cavallo, Joe Chiccarelli, and David Hodges.

In 2008 he founded, Camerata, a weekly live music and art event in Los Angeles to promote and expose his talented, undiscovered friends, and give them a platform to perform. After 200 consecutive weeks, Elmo put Camerata on hiatus to join a 2-year world tour as drummer and musical director for Christina Perri (TV performances on David Letterman, Ellen, Kimmel, Dancing With The Stars, and countless arena's and sheds) and was named one of Rhythm Magazine's Top 10 Drummers to Watch in 2012. Elmo is endorsed exclusively with Remo, Vic Firth, Sabian and Pearl Drums.

In 2014 Elmo founded Jammcard, a mobile app for the music community. Much like Camerata, Jammcard is being designed to help and foster the music community to ultimately empower musicians worldwide. Version 1 beta of Jammcard is in the iOS and Android app stores now. Check out:www.jammcard.com .

Elmo drives the creative vision and leads the team. The idea for Jammcard came to him as he was in constant search of musicians, and couldn't find a service that linked him easily to the right people. He created Jammcard as the exact thing he wanted handed to him when someone was suggesting a musician, and the exact thing he wanted to hand someone to present himself.
