ABOUT

I'm a drummer with 20 years experience, based just south of Sydney in the Sutherland Shire. I'm looking for musicians to partner with to perform live, write and record great music.

I have broad experience ranging from pop, rock and hip hop and to heavy metal and punk. I've helped aspiring pop artists with A&R showcases, but also rocked a festival of Elvis and Neil Diamond fans with a tribute show. I've played underground metal shows but also pumped out rock covers in packed pubs.

Here are some of my recent studio videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUtfT7Gqo5X8TgmZZ0Ocgfux9Ak3CkkQv

I can play with or without click tracks (live or in the studio) and I have experience in performing with backing tracks. My equipment means I can include recorded tracks in the live mix through the PA. E.g. electronic instruments, orchestral instruments or additional backing vocals.

I also own mixers, mics and a kick trigger, to get a clean crisp, professional mix out of the drums. Whilst I generally don't gig with it, I also own a TD9k Roland electronic drumkit.
