SEEKINGVocalist, Lead Guitar, Keyboard.
Self taught, been playing all my life. Have an extensive Premier XPK kit with Zildjian cymbals. Have an electronic kit too. Have played several gigs in the local area, but work tends to get in the way. I want to make more of a commitment to the drumming in an effort to put my existing career behind me and make a living as a musician.

Five Track number: 14 Year: 1999 Album: Fear Of Fours Genre: Other
The time code of this track doesn't follow 4:4 time. The first time I tried to drum along to it really confused me, but with patience I managed to follow it. I love the haunting keyboard sounds at the start of the track, and as the music builds up it becomes an incredible sound of accoustic bass and drums intermingled with electronic effects. You may recognise it as the theme to one of the BBC Ray Mears Survival programmes.
