About

I started playing the drums aged 10 having been inspired by friend and renowned session percussionist Frank Ricotti.

It wasn’t long before I decided that this was the career for me. After years of formal tuition and guidance from top session players, I started playing professionally – my first professional gig was age 15.

Outside of my studio I have worked with a number of artists and bands both in the studio and live. Recent work includes Bebe Rexha, Peter Andre, Shane Filan (Westlife), The Wandering Hearts, and Will Young. I’ve also worked alongside legendary Producer Wil Malone (Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Black Sabbath) on the No.1 Platinum-selling album ‘Inno’ for Italian artist Gianna Nannini back in 2014.

In 2011 I founded Online Drum Recording Service, WantDrums.com® in response to the dwindling budgets that recording artists and producers were facing.

Since WantDrums.com’s creation, I have recorded drums on countless songs for hundreds of artists, bands and producers the world over – remotely from my own recording studio in the UK.

WantDrums.com® is recognised as one of the leading drum recording services on the internet and clients such as Sky, EMI, Channel 4 TV, HBO and many more use me for all types of drum production – be it soundtracks, commercials, albums and more.
