The Drum Tamer - Purveyor of beats

Hello!  I'm John.  I'm a drummer & musician from Manchester (UK) and I love to get involved in all sorts of projects.  

I've played with prog, folk, funk, pop, rock, blues, electronica, math-rock, country and disco bands over the years so I'm always looking for a new challenge. 

Get in touch if you'd like to talk to me about playing on a record or coming to jam with you live.  I also do drum teching and recording/mixing/mastering.

@TheDrumTamer: "At @MediaCityUK today for a Blossoms @bbcintroducing special. @KirbyVictoria you about?"

Really proud of what I've achieved with this live album and video release. Took a lot of work/fun but I recorded, mixed and edited it all down and it's due out on Friday.  Probably one of the best Cleft gigs ever.  Huge thanks to @cakejamali @liam.david.mcshane @edsprakephoto and others, and of course the superbly talented guitartasm that is @dan_likes_guitars. #gig #live #Cleft #drums #guitar #prog #Manchester
