Biography

As a freelance musician I play with a variety of people and enjoy a busy schedule on the London gig and function circuit. Although I play mostly with jazz musicians, I am equally at home performing other musical genres such as pop, rock, funk and latin.

Over the years I have performed at many of Londons’ top live music venues, such as Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Express Dean Street, the 606 Jazz club, the National Theatre Jazz Stage, the 100 Club, The Spice of Life, The Stables Wavenden & Pizza on the Park.

Also, I have performed at the Edinburgh Festival, the Isle of Wight Jazz Festival and the Ealing Jazz festival as well as numerous gigs and tours in Holland, France, Sweden and the USA. I have also played in shows, such as the Little Shop of Horrors and Grease. Recently I was asked to deputize in the West End production of the Blood Brothers.

Though most of my work consists of live performances, I have also spent many hours under various studio roofs (often booked by the highly acclaimed producer and arranger Richard Niles). Although mostly booked to record with jazz and blues artists, I have also been hired for a number of rock & pop projects. More often than not I am required to play to a click track & I am equally comfortable recording to sequenced music such as drum loops.

As well as being a professional performing drummer, I teach the drum kit at Hemel Hempstead school as well as two other schools through Enfield Music Services. I also cover drum tuition at Dwight International School.

Over the years I have taught at numerous other schools, such as the New London Performing Arts Centre in Muswell Hill, North London. Many of my students have taken grades for drum kit, usually resulting in either a Merit or a Distinction. The accredited systems I am most familiar with are Rockschool and Trinity Guildhall. I possess a current DBS Disclosure as well as a Child Protection Certificate.
