Main Instrument – Drums Other Instruments – Bass Guitar Grades – Imminent Grade 8 on Drums Other Info – In my spare time I snowboard and mountain bike, I also have a keen interest in Garage Band and recording
Ever since I built my first drum kit out of paint tubs and started Media Blackout with Toby three years ago..
creating music and live performance is what I live for.
My music taste is wide and varied and I like bringing my influences to the band’s songwriting sessions. From Stevie Wonder to Tame Impala – I love exploring new musical influences.
I don’t think you can beat seeing bands live, luckily my parents agree (they’ve always been into music too) and I’ve already seen Vampire Weekend, Royal Blood, Pixies, UK Fighters and Nirvana UK as well as loads of live bands at local festivals.
I’m currently working towards my Grade 8 with Music Academy Midlands, where I’ve been having lessons for three years – an example of one of my grade pieces is below.
From gigs at the local village hall to sell out headline gigs at The Artrix theatre, performing on stage with my mates is amazing and while we can’t do that because of lockdown, we put in 100% effort to our online band sessions.
My future goals in music are to carry on pushing for my grade 8 exam and get into BOA – all whilst working with the band to go as far as I know we can.
The best is yet to come!
