Kyle is the Drummer
Nottingham, United Kingdom
I have nearly 10 years experience as a performing musician, primarily with artists’ original material and with cover/ function bands for gigs, private parties, festivals and charity events. I have toured around Europe and the UK and experienced numerous recording situations; this includes being able to use a click track confidently. I have extensive knowledge of tuning and the needed maintenance of a drum kit, due to my experience of playing with live bands and studio based work. I have worked with numerous genres, ranging from Jazz, Funk, Rock and currently Pop.
I approach any job with focus and an open-mind. I am a hard working individual and strive to achieve the very best in every given task. I am an avid traveller and love meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I am a versatile player who is consistently looking for new challenges to further my musical career.
