About Will

I am a professional rock drummer based in Hertfordshire, UK. I play with cover and tribute bands and am an online session drummer.
Bishop's Stortford
Verified profile

I am a professional touring and recording drummer, based in Hertfordshire, UK. I enjoy what I do and am an asset to any band I play in! Below is a list of my strengths: - Playing since 1999. - Quick learner, efficient and leave nothing to chance. Play both covers and in tributes. - I can play to clicks/backing tracks and also create them for my bands. - Can play double pedal. - Can play acoustic music through to metal. At my core I'm a backbeat drummer. - Good gear, well presented. - Upbeat and energetic stage demeanour, plenty of smiles. - Willing to adapt and dress according to different situations. - Have played all over the UK, Europe and the Middle East. - I am available to dep (substitute) for an absent drummer at the last minute. - Can read/write drum notation. - Have extensive recording experience and have recorded 900+ songs through my online service. - I have Musical Director experience and in that role I have coordinated my band's arrangements, interpretations and tones. The role has led me to be the first point of contact for new deps and I give them crash courses in what to expect onstage (cues etc).

I honestly cannot thank Will enough. We threw him a real curve ball with less than a days notice and he totally pulled it out of the bag. A total pro. Great to work with, communicative and fantastic musician. Had real integrity in making sure he could deliver what we asked for before committing. I cannot recommend him enough...

Thanks very much Jeni! You're all top people at the church. It was nerve-wracking only having about 4-5 hours to get my notes and basic parts together, but it turned out fine in the end!

I've used Will's drums for two different projects now and have found him to be capable of nailing a variety styles and always playing tastefully and for the song. I'll no doubt be using him again future!
