avatar for Sputnik


Drummer Robert "Sput" Searight II is best known for his work the the crowd-pleasing group Snarky Puppy out of Dallas, Texas, at least today. Back in the day, his group God's Property won a Grammy with Kirk Franklin in 1998 which was a major mark in Franklin and Searight's working relationship and with which he won a Grammy. Now, he's wowing crowds with Snarky Puppy on the kit, playing keys and producing here and there, and stepping out on his own with his group Sputnik. In all these things, he has been an upstanding performer, adept, precise, and deserving of attention.
