Upcoming shows! 

Now I know I’ve been VERY quiet on here! But for good reason!! 

Behind the scenes I’ve been building a new studio, kitting it out with gorgeous recording gear as well as some great sessions for some fantastic people. 

I promise I’ll update my blog more often now. 

So this week sees me heading back to one of my favourite countries with one of the favourite people I work with. 

Then home again and down to sensible studios in London for a session for a great singer songwriter! Busy busy!

New Year! New Gear! 

A very belated happy new year! 

I hope everyone got what they wanted for Christmas and got loads of drum goodies! 

So, 2017….. Hitting it hard this year! First off, it gives me great pleasure to announce I have signed with Vater drum sticks! Now let me tell you, these sticks are really something else! They are so durable, they really do take whatever you throw at them. The thing I love about them the most though is the consistency in how they’re made. There are lots of great stick makers out there. But one thing I found was I had to sort through 30/40 pairs of the same stick to find ones that were matched! 

But the great thing about Vater is whichever pair I pick up, I know it’s going to exactly the same every time. This is something I’ve been searching many years for so I’m so honoured to be part of such an amazing company. 

We’re not even in February yet this year and already had some great sessions for a few different projects and artists. 

It’s panning out to be a very busy year. So I’m going to be updating the blog on weekly basis. Please do keep checking back to see what’s happening! Or better still, subscribe! 

I’m also taking on a few extra private students so please use the contact form and get in contact if interested. 

Here we go 2017!!!

Christmas Time!!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! 

This is the strange part between Christmas and New Year when nobody really knows what to do, so I’d like to know if anyone got any good drum gadgets in their Christmas stocking this year! Is there a new must have tool or drum that Santa delivered? 

For me, it was mainly socks! But if you got new gear, please comment,post pictures, share and show me what new toys I need! 

Merry Christmas!

Steve White and Chad Smith

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the clinic last night with 2 of my favourite drummers ever! Steve was on top form as usual and displayed his usual, unbelievable technique and finesse around the kit. The way he approaches the drums and how he explains things is fantastic. Plus he’s a top bloke too! 

Chad Smith was a complete power house, laying the groove down like only he can. Solid, funky and soulful drumming. The two drummers are completely different in many ways but they seem the perfect match for a thrilling evenings entertainment. Added to that, Chad is also extremely funny! 

A top night had all round!
