Young at heart, energetic with lots of varied life experiences. Played professionally since being in my early teens. Played all styles and genres all over the UK (although not for a few years, hence very few recordings. I'm working on that right now) I don't drink alcohol, smoke or do drugs. My primary instrument is drums and percussion. Studied music technology at Manchester City Collage 97-99 Btec ND. Sound recording and live sound reinforcement in the field experience. NOT looking for a cover band. Only original material. Very committed and hard working. Willing to travel for the right project. Passport at the ready. Tight, articulate drummer that listens to other musicians. I have lots of studio playing experience, click tracks and sequencing no problem. I know my way around a mixing desk and have loads of studio experience as well as playing live. Looking to work with up and coming acts, original material only. 07799 688822
