BIO

Started drumming at the age of 10 years with my parents buying me my first drum kit that year, only receiving 7 months of lessons I have been self taught listening to my idols and perfecting my own style of playing. Brought up on bands like AC/DC, Status Quo, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Dio and many more courtesy of my father and step father with growing my love for music more and more through the years. Broadened my music tastes across all genres from around the world and able to perform most i put my mind too with styles i enjoy listening to most, I have been fortunate to meet or work alongside some of the amazing musicians I know to date feeding my passion more and more. Extensive tours over the years and shows in the UK, Europe and as far as Romania ranging from smaller shows to the mighty BLOODSTOCK Festival, Civic Centre Wolverhampton to The International Film Festival Transylvania with performing at many other festivals or venues throughout my career. HUNTED signed to Massacre Records in 2011 with another album soon for release, THE BIG FAT BLUES BAND gig far and wide with extensive amounts of shows each year who the singer is also in another project called S.E.X (Savage Excellence) who i am the current drummer of. AND THE SKY DARKENED is the main band i currently perform with, giving hard hitting powerful tracks and diversity of writing which i involve plenty of double kick and activity around the entire drum set up, with bigger things in the pipeline the future is very exciting indeed. My largest kit is an 11 piece TAMA SUPERSTAR TITANIUM FADE with up to 25 cymbals which i had the privilege to use in the DEEP PURPLE 2017 Single Release ‘JOHNNY’S BAND’, my second size down is also TAMA but only an 8 piece with 9 cymbal set up which i mainly use for tours. I am very proud to work with TAMA, ZILDJIAN, AQUARIAN DRUMHEADS, HARDCASE CASES and LONDON DRUMSTICK CO I am a hard hitting, passionate drummer who just keeps going
