band: Session drummer
STICK SIZE: 5b
I’ve been drumming since the age of 10, so for 14 years. I began with lessons from a teacher called Rob Reeves for 4-5 years and then carried on teaching myself and playing by ear more than reading music. I joined a Swing band at my school and later formed an indie rock band with my brother and 2 friends a few years ago. We supported bands like the Amazons, Vinyl Staircase and The Orielles. We then split our own ways, I went to Uni and Graduated with a Digital Film Production degree and in 2020 moved to the Netherlands to work as Videographer/ Social Media Content Creator for ‘Wim Hof’. Unfortunately, this was when Covid-19 hit and so I moved back home to the UK and spent lockdown in my bedroom with my drums.
Which is where I am now.
I wanted to carry on using my Film Production skills and story telling abilities as well as my passion for drumming to create a new Character / Social Media presence. Which is why I created Druminati, And in 4 months i’ve accumulated 6500 followers on TikTok, 1400 subs on YouTube and Instagram has 1300 followers. My plan is to carry on creating funny and entertaining content because I love making people laugh and I’ll just wait and see where this all takes me.
Ive just begun this journey but I see a hopeful future and everyday is a new opportunity to learn
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
I use Collision Drumsticks 5B because I love the balance and durability of them. They are a very hardy set of sticks and can take a beating (even from us heavy handed drummers). I like the Collision brand because of their friendliness and emergence in the drum community on social media. Behind the brand lays a great team of individuals who drive it and are super supportive especially through the ‘Backstage’ sessions. I recommend trying out the Collision Drumsticks If you hate your sticks breaking all the time.
