I pride myself on having a versatile musicianship, which has allowed me to tour extensively, performing across the UK, Europe and Asia. I have stacked up over 15 years of experience in diverse styles that include Rock, Pop, Jazz and Latin, both live and in the studio. I currently hold endorsements with Shine drums, Istanbul Cymbals, and Lion Cajon Drums.
I have played with many bands, and I am currently the drummer with rock band ‘21REASONS’ (Diesel Records). My knowledge of rhythm and Latin percussion has enabled me to accompany high profile DJs at venues all over the world. This exposure led to my latest collaboration with the hugely talented ‘SPECTOR’ (electro) (Champion Records) recently being played on Radio 1, 6 Music, MTV and various Console Games. I have been part of ‘THE DANNY ALLAN BAND,’ reaching the top 10 in numerous Jazz Charts, and more recently ‘COSMIC GIRLS,’ who have traveled across the world as Duffy’s backing singers. I also be play many sessions for numerous bands and in the orchestra pit for shows up and down the country.
As well as a performer, I try my best to be an inspirational educator. I am currently head of percussion studies at the highly-rated Yarm School, where some of my students have reached the final of, and sometimes won, both the ‘Drummers Alliance’ and Young Drummer Of The Year Competitions. I am also General Manager at the north’s leading music school, The Northern School of Contemporary Music.
