Whether you’re looking for a drummer for an upcoming tour, a one off show, or as a full time band member please don’t hesitate to get in touch to discuss your needs.
With many years of live performance experience, within many musical genres, I’m confident I can do a good job for you. I read & write drum music enabling me to learn songs quickly, I’m experienced playing to a click live, and I’ve got good quality, well maintained, equipment. I pride myself on being well organised with a professional attitude and easy to get along with on the road.
I’m able to offer different recording options to suit a range of projects and budgets. I can record myself then send you the .wav or .aiff files…
- Low budget home recording using Roland V-Drums with Zildjian Gen16 hybrid cymbals.
- Home recording combining Roland V-Drums with miked up acoustic cymbals (2 x overheads + hi-hats).
- Local recording (at nearby hired room) of full acoustic drumset. Each drum and hi-hats individually miked plus stereo overheads.
- Alternatively, depending on location and budget, I can travel out to a professional studio of your choosing to get my drums recorded.
In addition to drumset parts I’m also able to record and/or program percussion tracks, bass guitar and piano/synth parts depending on requirements, and to a certain extent rhythm & lead guitar too.
I offer 1 to 1 drum lessons at my studio in Exeter, UK. Lessons are for all levels, beginners to advanced, minimum age 10. I teach a range of musical styles and essential techniques to help take your playing to the next level. Students will also learn reading, writing and music theory.

This year I’ll be playing all over the UK & Europe with Kris Barras Band as we continue to promote our latest album: Lucky 13, which launched at no.2 in both the iTunes & Amazon blues charts.
N.U.M.B. are keeping me busy with various gigs and sessions, plus we’ve just launched our 4th studio album: Irieprofen!
I recently played two exciting shows at Ramblin’ Man Fair. One with Caitlin Koch (Nashville based X-Factor USA contestant), then the next day with Kris Barras Band.
My new single Seize the Day (feat. Jodie Licinio) is now available through iTunes & Amazon. Watch now on Youtube.
