I have been playing the drums for 19 years. During this time I studied Music Grades for Drumkit and been in several bands, mostly in the pop/rock genre; but I can play a variety of styles. I also play the cajon and like the contrast between the two instruments.


Covers bands experience:

Since 2010, have been performing with two covers bands playing songs from the 1950s up to the present day in pubs and at functions. Has included depping for other bands as well.


Original bands experience:

Currently not involved with any original bands. Most recent was playing the drums/cajon for soul, blues and pop singer/songwriter Kerrie Masters in 2014/15.

An important part of my music career was with the 5 piece Brit-rock band 'Krish' based in London, when I was a member from early 2006 to late 2010. It started my experience with recording and playing gigs such as 100 Club and Clapham Grand in London and supporting the band 'Ash'. I also acted as manager for the band and was responsible for booking the gigs.
