Band to Join.


Drummer, playing a wide variety of styles, came back into drumming a year ago after quite a long lapse while I focused on work and family. Now back at it and keen to work with a band or on collaborative projects. I'm an avid player and improver studying with drumeo as a lifetime member.

Feel free to send me a track or two and I'll record a drum part to see if I may fit in with your project - pdathey@me.com

Growing experience of studio recording in Logic Pro X and Reaper.

Have not gigged for quite a few years (as only recently started playing again) but did extensively in my earlier days.

Rock and 80's metal are initial influences but today I listen to, and try to learn, many different playing styles. Heavily influenced by Todd Sucherman - especially his Rock Drumming Masterclass on Drumeo. Simon Phillips, Neil Peart and Steve Smith to name but a few, all drummers I refer to and try to learn from every day.

Music is super important to me - I could only choose 4 genres above but I'm also super into Country, Alt. Country (16 horsepower, Wovenhand), Blues, Funk, Pop - almost anything. I'm not a metal drummer but love hairy metal of the 80's. Lots of stuff to be honest and willing to give almost anything a go. Fast and conscientious learner.
