Tell us a little about your background...
I have been playing the drums since the age of 5, having had lessons off a professional drum coach for the first 7 years.
I attended college from the age of 16, where I studied Music Theory & Performance, & passed the BTEC accreditation after the first 2 years & achieved the Higher National Diploma 2 years later.
I have also mastered, & performed, many of the various drumming styles over the last 20 years.
I started seriously performing live from the age of around 12 where I played drums for a local band, playing in pubs & clubs around Warwickshire.
This lead to my first "major" gig, at 16 years of age, supporting "Pinkertons Assorted Colours" at a local event in front of a couple of thousand people.
I carried on drumming with this band during my last year at senior school & up to my start at college.
During my time at college, I started visiting & getting involved with a recording studio in Northampton where I met an extremely talented singer/songwriter/guitarist by the name of Danny Connors. It was during this time that his band was invited to play support to Paul Weller on his 2009 UK tour. At the last minute, the bands regular drummer had to pull out, so Danny asked me to step in. After a couple of hours rehearsal, we turned up at the Cardiff International Arena, walked out on stage in front of several thousand people & the rest, as they say, is history!
After this, I went on to join a band from Rugby playing a mixture of original & cover songs. Whilst we enjoyed great reviews, the band wanted to move to a more heavier sound which I, personally, didn't think suited this particular group of musicians so I decided to move on.
My next venture was to co-form a band with a couple of talented musicians from Northamptonshire. This band also involved a female singer, performing a mixture of covers & originals in a progressive rock/folk style with a touch of blues!
We enjoyed extremely good reviews & played various concerts throughout Warwickshire, Northamptonshire & the Midlands, producing a studio recorded CD of original songs along the way.
This was an extremely enjoyable venture which, unfortunately ended when 3 of the band members went to university.
After this, I decided to look for a professional band performing regular functions & various styles of music.
I joined "The Tracey Matthews Band" in 2012. Tracey is a locally recognised singer, performing throughout the UK at various functions & she decided to form her own band to support her.
We currently play at functions organised mainly through local radio & in front of larger-than-average audiences.
We are enjoying some extremely positive reviews & the band are looking at including original material going forward.
Along side this, I also perform with another local band performing Classic Rock covers! This is a fun project which includes an incredible but extrovert lead guitarist!

As you will have seen from my varied musical experiences, I have performed to both small & large audiences & I will say in all honesty, I am as passionate playing to 10 people as to 10,000.

I have a varied musical taste including Jazz, Blues, Country, Rock & Roll, Soft Rock, Hard Rock, Progressive Rock & Pop with various musical influences ranging from Buddy Rich & Steve Smith for their Jazz techniques, Mike Portnoy & Neal Peart for progressive techniques & Nico McBrain & Roger Taylor (Queen drummer) for their all round Rock style.

Whilst I have enjoyed many years of playing & performing live music, in various styles & in various bands, my ambition is to perform on a regular basis & to, ultimately, earn a living from playing the drums.
