“I’ve played a few C&C kits by now and have absolutely fallen in love with all of them. They’ve all been sublime and I’m always amazed by how versatile they are. The vintage sound and warm tones are perfect, and I always look forward to playing them. They offer something completely unique and I can’t ever imagine myself using anything else. It’s great to be part of the family.”
I first began playing drums when I was 8 years old, thrashing out a mini Percussion Plus kit that I’d got for christmas. I quickly became obsessed with vintage kits when I joined my first band, Race Horses. We toured quite a lot over a period of 4 years and released two albums. During which time I came across a few 50’s and 60’s Slingerland and Rogers kits. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a 70’s Rogers Kit that I still have today. I absolutely love it but unfortunately, it’s seen better days. In late 2014 I started touring with Villagers, releasing the live album ‘Where Have You Been All My Life’ in 2016.
