I'm a 29 year-old experienced drummer based in Manchester. I have plenty of experience gigging and recording Manchester... and, of course, experienced with being on time...
I used to be in a psychedelic grunge band which I co-founded. Because of this I am also experienced in terms of managing and promoting a band and releasing albums/EPs.
I like to write drum parts with the mentality of a song writer, ie: play whatever makes the song better, which sometimes is not necessarily what shows off your skill. I am also extremely open to taking suggestions for my drumming from any other band member.
I do come from primarily from a rock drumming background but have also largely ventured into the worlds of electro and art rock (more info below). Due to this I have also experimented with synthesizers and various production techniques.
