I am a freelance session drummer based in Manchester, I have toured the UK, mainland Europe and Asia with different bands of contrasting style and genre, I have also recorded drums on two albums, working with producers such as Dan Lancaster (Bring me the horizon, Blink 182, 5 Seconds Of Summer) and James Bragg (Ben Howard, Genghar). I am enrolling on a masters course at the Royal Northern College of Music in September.
Help Musicians have granted me an award of £2,500 which will help me greatly in raising money towards my remaining course fees. It is extra important for me as I am self funding my masters and need all the help I can get so it is a huge weight lifted knowing that I have been lucky enough to receive the postgraduate award.
