ABOUT

Hi, I've been drumming for over 15 years, looking to turn professional and tour in an established originals or tribute act. Also open to a covers/wedding bands.
I have a plenty of experience - most notably my two early groups who were signed to a small label (TipTop Records), Forest - shoegaze/slacker rock (https://open.spotify/artist/0xK3XhkKTnG5P0u4sglF26?si=za25pp6JSwS1gG1VrGO8Kw) and The Whales - psychedelic rock/folk (https://open.spotify/album/3ioLZKG7RTnSqC3hiVv1IV?si=Ws8a-WxSRA-z6avZJ1tXOg and soundcloud links here).

I earned a merit grade 7 in 2011 but that was just for the UCAS points, I've come a long way since then. Other experience includes percussion for bands and orchestras supporting musicals and amateur dramatics, a bit of session work and lots of recording for friends studying music degrees/creating original songs. My most recent project was just a covers / wedding band who played indie/pop (Arctic Monkeys, Killers, Kings of Leon etc). The pandemic put an end to that.

I can read sheet music but mostly play / learn by ear. I find can play pretty much everything I hear on the radio, but I'm no savant. That said the practice over pandemic has finally gotten me to a level where I feel I can understand and learn my absolute drumming idols, basically unless you're a Black Midi covers band we'll be fine!

Open to new original projects too but only if you fw my influences / are an avant gardener... I don't want to waste my time on a project that isn't trying to do something radical/fresh.
