I completed my BA(Hons) music performance degree specialising in Drums at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford in 2020. I studied under some top industry players such as Toby Drummond (We Will Rock You, Wicked), Darren Beckett (Brandon Flowers) and Windsor McGilvery (Hugh Cornwell, Fish &ndash; solo ex Marillion). I also studied with John Roberts (The Blockheads) for a year. As well as achieving Grade 8 distinction with Trinity in 2017 I also achieved Edexcel A level music with a B grade and played in my local big band until the end of 2018. I have since gone on to become the drummer for Cloneplay, a Coldplay tribute band who I still currently play with. I am also currently a musician for the Pure Entertainment Group who specialise in sorting lots of different tribute acts across the U.K. including Jeff Dingle as Bruno Mars and Ultimate Killers. During April - May 2022 I also embarked on a U.K. theatre tour of Doris Day - The Musical. This was a fantastic experience of playing in a theatre at a professional level for the first time.
For my style of drumming, I cite drummers such as Neil Peart, Phil Collins, Roger Taylor and Taylor Hawkins as my big influences, particularly while I was growing up.
A standout moment in my career so far has been my first experience of playing in a musical theatre production when I played in my college production of &lsquo;Bonnie and Clyde&rsquo; as the Drummer under the instruction of musical director Liam Carey. What I most enjoyed was the diversity of the songs and the opportunity to concentrate on a range of styles during one production as well as it being my first experience with a theatre collaboration.
