Drumming has played a major roll in my life, inspiring me to become a professional musican and tour the UK many times, performing at some of the UK's top festivals, music venues, clubs, commercial radio stations (including the BBC) and corporate events.
I have performed for many theatre companies as a drummer and percussionist. Key musicals include: Annie Get Your Gun, Peter Pan, Grease and Mary Poppins, playing many styles including Broadway, Rock n' Roll, Funk, Jazz, Pop, traditional Brass Band marches and many more.
As well as performing live, I thoroughly enjoy working in the studio. Examples of my studio drumming can be heard on many albums including 'Unseen', written by Sellaband artist Ellie Williams, produced by Tony Platt (AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Bob Marley)
Not just an avid drummer and musician, I continue as a competent sound engineer in, and out of the studio. Having worked as a studio / location engineer for many years, I have gained proficient skills with Pro-Tools / Logic and also digital and analogue platforms.
I aim to bring personality and character to every project I undertake and aim to produce the highest possible product required.
Recent projects include the Elize Kellman band, North London Brass and my 'Real Drummer - Real Drums' website containing free drum loops for musicians.
