Growing up in the Northwest corner of Washington state in the small town of Clallam Bay, Kent Diimmel developed a passion for drums at a young age and instantly gravitated towards Rock, Singer-Songwriter and Country music. Being 1 of 38 people in his entire highschool, pursuing music was not an option in that area. After shedding through the local music scene, it was soon clear that Kent needed to expand his horizon beyond the limits of his hometown.
In 2012 Kent decided to move to Hollywood California to pursue his dreams in music. He attended the world renowned Musicians Institute College on Hollywood Blvd. After graduation he was then hired at the college and became a part time employee. It was here that Kent got his feet wet playing in cover bands and original projects all over southern California.
Now rocking hard out of Seattle Washington, Kent Diimmel is currently touring/playing for the metal band In This Moment. Kent is also playing percussion in the acoustic super group Blackfall. Looking ahead into the future, Kent is actively pursuing his opportunities in the industry as a session and live performer. He is continuing to serve artists and producers with his Precise, Powerful and yet elegant style behind the drum kit both on and off stage.
