SEEKINGBand to Join.
Please feel free to check out my website http://www.connorshorttdrummer.com/ for videos and more information.
I am drummer located in Guildford and Reading and have been playing drums and percussion for the past eleven years.
I have just completed a Perfomance Music Degree (Drums) at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford. I teach kit and am available for session work and "depping". I'm happy playing the following styles: Rock, Punk and Metal, Jazz and Latin, Funk, Soul, Pop and folk music. I consider myself to have a good working knowledge of most styles of music.
I also play hand and tuned percussion.
I perform with Black Emerald who were invited by Simon Hall of Beholder to perform on the New Blood Stage at Bloodstock Open Air 2013. I am also the drummer for InAir, an Alt-Rock band based in Reading.
I have my own transport and hold a full clean license. In addition I am a member of the Musician's Union and have appropriate Liability Insurance in place. I have my own equipment, transport and a friendly, professional attitude.
