I've been playing Drums for 12 years over which I've played in numerous original projects ranging from pop to metal through to jazz, where I am always eager to put forward creative ideas. Or if I am playing for an artists project I am happy to sit back and play as instructed. Groove has always been the strongest part of my playing and I strongly believe in playing for the music, not to show off chops.
Having started my drumming life in the percussion section of various youth orchestras, I'm a solid reader and happy to sight read if needed.
I've also been involved in several function bands, from classic rock covers to soul/funk to rock/pop party tunes. I always strive to keep solid time and make the music feel good.
I am click-friendly, comfortable with BVs, very comfortable in the studio and at home on stage.
I am always reliable, on time, with everything I need for shows/rehearsals.
Own kit and transport.
