New music coming soon…


As you may or may not be aware, I’m the drummer for a band named Institutes, I’m very excited to announce that we’re going to be releasing two songs imminently. I’m particularly excited as these are the band’s first recordings with me on them! At the bottom of this post I’ve put some footage of when we recorded the drums.

In other news I’m playing at the Spotted Dog on the 22nd March with Ferris / Lee / Weir. Its an incredible night run by the amazing Jonathan Silk and Richard Foote. You can find out more about the Spotted Dog here!

Not bad place to play a gig eh?


Hi there

Haven’t posted anything here for a while. I’ve been busy sorting stuff out, recording, practicing and writing etc with a few lovely gigs in between. Highlights would have to include Baker Street with Ferris / Lee / Weir and gigs at the Firefly and Pig and Drum with Institutes.

As for the coming months, I’m going to be gigging with Dom Franks’ Strayhorn, Institutes and Ferris / Lee / Weir. Really excited for my first gig in Scotland with Allan Young’s trio.

Lots of exciting things lined up and I’ll post them on this site as they arrive!

Hi folks! It’s been a little while since I posted something on here. I’ve been having the most amazing, barmy, musical summer! Coming up next Saturday (22nd August) I’m playing at Freefall Festival in Derbyshire with Institutes. Then on Wednesday 26th August I’m playing in Sheffield at The Lescar with the amazing David Ferris on organ and Ben Lee on Guitar. Then on Friday 28th August Institutes are playing at Sunshine Festival (alongside acts such as UB40!

Below is a rough guide to what I do with Institutes:
