I'm a 23 year old drummer from Berkshire and have been playing drums and percussion for the past fifteen years. I graduated in 2016 with a Degree in Music Performance (BMus) from the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, having been taught by the likes of Frank Tontoh (Amy Winehouse, Jack Bruce, Brother Strut) and Pete Riley (Republica, Guthrie Govan and Phil Hilbourne). I teach kit with the Rock Project in Oxfordshire, one on one lessons, freelance and studio work. I'm specialise in Rock, Grunge, Punk, Metal, Hip-hop, Soul and Blues.
I am the drummer for two bands - Black Emerald, our debut album Hell Can't Handle All of Us was released in 2018. I also drum and sing backing vox for InAir, an alt-rock band from Reading. We released our latest EP, "A Different Light" in October 2017, which received great reviews from Kerrang and a host of magazines and blogs.
I am a member of the Musician's Union and have appropriate Liability Insurance and DBS in place. I have my own equipment, transport (car and 7-seater crew van) and a friendly, professional attitude.
