BAND: barbarian hermit
STICK SIZE: 5bR
I originally played guitar but was appalling! One day, when I was about 16, I tried a friends drum set and it was much more fun to me. After that I spent all my time learning Nirvana songs in my bedroom using a shin pad strapped to my leg and pillows on an old desk. I didn’t have a kit for about 3 years!After a good few years of playing in various band doing different styles, it was apparent that loud, heavy stuff is what grooves my truffles. In 2015 I discovered Barbarian Hermit. I was not the original drummer and I loved them before I joined.Since joining we’ve come a long way. We’ve recorded our debut album – “Solitude And Savagery” which we released on APF Records to some great feedback, particularly in magazines that I used to read when I was teenager! We have done lots of great shows promoting the album and threw in a couple of tours.
We won the Bloodstock Festival Metal 2 The Masses competition and joined a stacked lineup in 2018 which included Gojira and Judas Priest. We were blown away to be asked back to open the festival the following year on the Sophie Lancaster stage which is a huge deal for us. We’re currently working on our next album so keep your eyes peeled for new music.
