I perform at functions, hotels, holiday parks, theatre shows & corporate events around the South West/East and the UK. I am an ex Royal Marine percussionist and a experienced and confident drummer who can work with a click track and backing tracks and has experience working in a studio environment. I also own my own personal satellite recording studio running where I can produce tracks for distances projects. I am flexible and adaptable to most musical environments. I use only professional equipment and use Roland TD20KX with a SPDSX and Yamaha Maple Custom Acoustic kit with Ziljian A custom cymbals. I am a fluent reader and can improvise well. I can travel and have my own transport. I manage session musicians for function work regularly and recently I have been working closely with a large agency to assist them with live bands for tribute shows. This has also involved writing charts for musicians to follow. I have a variety of experiences that make me very adaptable to many scenarios, but I am a dedicated and hard working musician who is never afraid of a challenge and to learn new skills where required. If you would like more information please contact me either by phone or email.
As a vocalist I have performed at various venues around the UK performing various styles of music. I am a Baritone and croon comfortably. I also cover Rock n Roll, Blues and popular music. I am experienced fronting 9 piece bands as well as big bands and have all my own charts, backing tracks and post production tracks for live performances with smaller ensembles. I regularly programme DMX lighting for my solo shows. During Lockdown I have produced several Live streams/broadcasts using green screen technology. This has lead to paid appearances for private online events for Birthdays and Anniversaries etc. From my studio I have performed on international recording projects with known producers and artists. These were performed on Drums and Percussion and I have produced and edited video for these also. I have also been given the opportunity to engineer some of these recordings. I am versatile, adaptable and most of all professional and courteous. For more information please feel free to message me. Many thanks,

Martin
