Uriah Heep


I started drumming at the age of four and by age twelve, I was depping in West-End shows and playing for well-known and much-loved artists by the age of fourteen.

During my career, I have played many genres of music from Jazz (Chris Barber Jazz and Blues Band, Blues Pop (Alan Price from The Animals), Pop (John Farnham, 5 Star, Helen Shapiro, Lonnie Donnegan) and Rock (Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath, Avantasia) and currently Uriah Heep... 14 years and counting!

In between all of this, I am known to be a drum clinician, playing many festivals and independent clinics throughout Europe.

Kit Setup

"Finding British Drum Co has been such a relief! Everyone at BDC feels like family and makes us artists feel extra special. The craftsmanship is second to none which is why the drums sound so incredible! At last, I've found a drum company who represent me and my sound perfectly."
