ABOUT

I'm looking to get involved with someone or a band that is/are making music that FEELS good. I'm not a flashy drummer, I'm much better at sitting in the pocket and playing for the song. I listen to some pretty heavy and aggressive, playing hard over the years has literally cost me hundreds in replacing equipment, which is all part of the fun (that's what I tell myself anyway!) but also enjoy stomping along, four to the floor, and accenting a melody.

In the past I've played in everything from Hard Rock to Alternative Metal to Hip-Hop and most recently in a Pop Rock/Jazz trio.

I enjoy writing music and studied Creative Music at uni, most of the music I write is piano based but I can't actually play it so finding like-minded musicians that can collaborate and help turn ideas into reality is my end goal. I'm down to get gigging or writing and recording, for the record though I kinda suck at covers... They rarely feel right and I lose interest quickly unless you're looking to rearrange them.

I'm mostly available at weekends or late evenings (work pattern has me finishing at 8pm most days).
