- 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.

Whether you’re looking for a drummer for an upcoming tour, a one off show, or as a full time band member, 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.
In my home studio I record with Logic Pro X, using Focusrite audio interfaces and a selection of good microphones by Shure, Sennheiser, AKG & Røde. In addition to acoustic drums & cymbals I’m also able to record using electronic drums. Once you’re happy that my drum parts are right for your project I’ll send over the final .wav files via email.
Alternatively, depending on location & budget, I’m happy to travel out to a “professional” recording studio of your choice.
In addition to drumset parts I can record and/or program percussion, 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.
