Music became my passion when I was around 13 years old. I began learning the 12 bar blues in A on guitar from a friend, and quickly discovered that I loved it. From then on it's just progressed. I currently don't have any grades in guitar but can play at a decent level.
I took drum lessons not long after picking up the guitar, and it became apparent that this was 'my' instrument. I took up to grade 8 (Rockschool Board) and passed with 88%, and have played in numerous bands, including a 50's/60's/70's covers band that was paid and gigged twice a month.
At the moment I'm living in Bristol, studying my first year at BIMM (Bristol Institute of Modern Music) the course is a 'BA Hons in Professional Musicianship for Drums'.
On top of these things I also enjoy songwriting; if you want to hear any they're all on my Soundcloud.
