The Drum Tamer - Purveyor of beats

Hello!  I'm John.  I'm a drummer & musician from Manchester (UK) and I love to get involved in all sorts of projects.  

I've played with prog, folk, funk, pop, rock, blues, electronica, math-rock, country and disco bands over the years so I'm always looking for a new challenge. 

Get in touch if you'd like to talk to me about playing on a record or coming to jam with you live.  I also do drum teching and recording/mixing/mastering.

@TheDrumTamer: "@CharlieBarnes You're always welcome at mine if you need somewhere to drape yourself overnight like the louche art maker that you are."

Thanks yet again to the amazing @cosmicears team for sorting me out with a replacement cable at short notice this morning, before I leave for America with @blossomsband.  I've used my CE3Ws almost every single day since I got them in 2014 and I couldn't do my job half as well without them. Heard the CE6Ps today in their office and damn they're good! #IEM #CosmicEars #headphones
