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.

Another installment in the day-off-tour-practice-room-kit-lottery, this one in Bristol with a Premier Resonator thanks to the basement of the wonderful Stag and Hounds pub.  Took me ages to get this right but I like the lilting feel of the beat and it helps me with limb independence.  #drums #practice
