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.

Just finished mixing a live set of piano and violin I recorded last weekend.  I've never recorded a grand piano live before, so I was a bit nervous it wouldn't come out right, but handily the internet told me to grow a pair and just get on with it.  Still have no idea how to mic a piano properly but it turned out alright so that's good. #recording #piano #violin #live
