Hi I'm Jon, nice to meet you. Grab a seat, this won't take too long.
I picked up my first pair of sticks in 1995 and over the next few years I played in the West Country with a number of bands.
In 2003 I moved to Manchester/Liverpool to broaden my musical horizons where I remained for a couple years, taking in a lot of positive musical experiences in the North West.
I relocated again near to London back in 2006 and have continued to play with bands and artists.
The number of Gigs I've played is easily in the few hundreds over the last 20+ years but I am equally comfortable in a studio environment- and can play with or without a click track.
I also have also toured & performed with household names.
In the last few years I part-rented a studio in London so a lot of experience recording. I have studied with a select choice of teachers, most recently private studying with a well-known professional.
I consider myself a very friendly and committed chap who mixes well with people and is also able to focus and prepare for whatever project I am doing at any time. I feel I am very adaptable to any style and love learning new things and challenging myself.
If you're looking for a drummer and I look to fit the bill feel free to get in touch.
I am available for both studio session work and live performance work and I have a driving license & transport.
