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, in a range of musical genres, I’m confident I can do a good job for you. I read & write music enabling me to learn songs quickly, I have experience playing live shows to a click, plus I have 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 offer different recording options to suit a range of projects and budgets…
- Remote recording from my home studio. Combining triggered kick and toms (using Roland V-Drums) with miked up acoustic cymbals and snare drum.
- Remote recording from a studio local to me. Fully miked acoustic drumset recording.
- Pro’ studio recording. Depending on location & budget, I’ll travel out to a professional recording studio of your choice.
In addition to drumset parts I’m also able to record and/or program percussion tracks, bass guitar, piano/synth parts and potentially guitar parts too (depending on requirements).
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.

In 2018 I’ll be heading out on tour again with Kris Barras Band who’s recently signed a multi-album recording deal with Mascot Label Group.
My brand new track: Walking In Circles, is out now! Also available in drum play-along format.
N.U.M.B.‘s new album: Irieprofen is out now on iTunes, Amazon & Spotify! I recorded all the drum parts for the album and a few of the bass lines too.
