In a career spanning over twenty years, Jeffrey Mince established himself as a professional drummer, working with renowned producers and engineers in every major studio in the Los Angeles area, while also touring and recording internationally with punk rock icon, Nina Hagen, among others. In 2009, he left the music industry to become an ordained Buddhist monk, teaching Buddhist philosophy and psychology full-time.


Mince returned to drumming in 2015 and began producing music under the band name Mechanic. The first EP release features vocalist, Toddy Walters, guitarist Mike Johnson, guitarist Joshua Lopez, string arranger and pianist Steven Alan Snelling, as well as many other extraordinary musicians.

"My intention with the Mechanic project," says Mince, "is to find the artistic place where the paths I've traveled converge."
