About Chad Pitt-Murphy

I have performed on The Graham Norton Show, recorded at Maida Vale Studios, major UK festivals, toured UK, Europe and India.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I'm a pro drummer/percussionist based in SE London. I play a wide array of styles having played with several interesting acts, African marimba playing traditional Mozambique, Zimbabwean music, Original 60's Ska, Drum and bass, hip-hop, funk, neo soul, folk, gypsy swing and even heavy metal once upon a time. I moved to London from Yorkshire about 10 years ago and have been playing music and meeting wonderful people all the while since. I'm looking for some interesting acts to play with and interesting people to make music with. I do also have a music room at my house I'm able to do remote recordings in and use for rehearsals, it has a kit, PA and amps in.

Chad Pitt-Murphy completes the backline with is his skilful rolls and Chimurenga-style hi-hat pronounced lines. He has been on the London circuit for a good amount of time and he brings the London feel to the band.

Juan, 1 year ago

Chad is an amazing drummer, always plays for the music but very creative, has a solid groove and is very professional.. a pleasure to have in the studio.
