About Chris McCann

I'm a drummer from Northern Ireland!
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I graduated from Ulster University with a degree in music, which has given me a solid foundation in music theory, composition, and performance. My focus was on drumming, which I have been doing professionally for over six years. During this time, I have gained significant experience in playing live music, particularly as part of Belfast's vibrant cover scene, which has provided me with a platform to showcase my skills. I have performed at various weddings, corporate events, and bars, where I have been able to connect with audiences and get a sense of their tastes in music. In addition, to live performances, I also have experience in the recording studio, where I have worked with various artists to help them produce high-quality music. My knowledge of music production techniques and software has allowed me to fill out sessions and bring a range of different styles and genres to life. I am always eager to explore new ideas, and I believe that my experience and versatility in music make me an ideal collaborator for any project. Whether you need someone to play live music, record in the studio, or simply bring a fresh perspective to your music, I am confident that I can help you achieve your goals.
