I’m seeking a serious commitment with a band that have experienced musicians with songs ready to go. I would prefer to rehearse at least twice a week the more the better.

I have a create flair with a individual sound and writing style. I’m open minded with music and adapt easily. I’m image conscious and willing to work on aspects of that to.

Music I listen too XTC, The Fall, Fleetwood Mac, Maccabees, The National, The Invisible, Lady Hawke, Jake Penate (second album onwards), Feist, massive attack……

Bands drummers I sound like XTC, Mutemath, Fleetwood Mac, the National, The Invisible, TV on the Radio, Cursive, Maccabess, Howling Bells and Lady Hawke.

Other influences incl The Invisible, The National, Foals, John Mayer, Zero 7, XTC, The Velvet Underground, The Black Keys, The Kills, Battles, Can, Jimi Hendrix, The Babies and Dr Dog.

I have my own home studio and 3 to 4 years experience recording. Not comparable to pro studio but good enough to demo tracks for pre-production very usefully.

I play most styles except jazz…and Funk.

Metal: Metal as in prog think Mars Volta, Cult of Luna, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastadon and Converge. It’s gotta be prog metal or I’m not interested. Not into death metal.

Pop: You might be put of by my metal style playing but I’m just as capable with Pop.

Rock/Pop: People say I sound like Chad smith from the chilli’s mixed with Dave Grohl I guess thats the best description I have.

Alt/Rock/Pop: I’ve got a few influences here depending on whether your looking at pop or rock. But mainly they are Mutemath, Warpaint, Old Biffy, Coldplay, Friendly Fires and Cursive.

There is a lot of varied styles but I’ve played in bands similar to most of my influences.

Apart from being a drummer, I’m an Engineer/Producer, I record and mix and have a portable studio, I’m by no means a professional. All of my examples below are my work. I especially like working with songwriters on songs but I equally like just performing live. I try my best with graphics/ artwork and can sometimes come up with good ideas. I studied music at BIMM bristol with a few well known musicians and worked with a few of them.

Overall I’d sum my drumming up as versatile, tasteful, original and solid.

One thing that is very important to me. I’m very committed to music and wish to pursue a career as a musician. I don’t wish to work with people who are not like minded in that respect.

I’m looking for an established band, an artist with a manager looking for session players. Experienced Musicians only/ Professionals only, Give me a call. 0 7 9 2 2 0 1 4 3 11
