After Studying performing arts at Wigan & Leigh Music College, I luckily found myself playing around the UK in various bands, playing all kinds of venues and festivals. Some of the bands set ups required me to play with a click track and some to a backing track too. I have managed to clock up quite a lot of studio time too and I have been fortunate enough to work with some incredible producers / engineers, Mike Frazer (AC/DC, Bryan Adams, Areosmith, Joe satriani) Pete Lorentz (Athlete, Vibrators & The Buzzcocks).
I have also shot a couple of music videos too and have got to play some fantastic tours promoting the album and single releases.

i completed a uk tour a couple of years ago promoting an album launch where we played all across the uk from Newcastle down to Bristol, London to Glasgow. a very enjoyable and fantastic experience.

I have also work as a Drum tech with Melanie C & Starsailor. working on Tours and festivals in the UK and Europe.

i have a grade eight in drums and a grade three in guitar, i am currently working on my grade five on the guitar and grade three on the keyboard too.

I have a number of different drum kit set ups so I can adapt my sound accordingly. I usually play a pearl masters kit with zildjian cymbals and I also use a Yamaha oak x custom for bigger rocking type songs. I own a nice collection of snare drums too, so this is really useful when wanting to capture a certain sound.
