James on James

“I’ve been playing drums for nine years. I took lessons shortly after starting, and passed the Trinity College Grade 8 exam last year. Picked up guitar about six years ago, and I have become mildly proficient at that.

I have been gigging in the Braintree area for the last six years playing drums in a cover band playing a wide range of music.

I taught at a drum academy in Colchester for a several years and now teach from my home.

I’m mostly interested in listening to rock and blues, but I am very happy to listen to, and play, most styles of music.”


James has loads of influences in common with other band members, and describes his taste in music as ‘everything from Iron Maiden to The Spinners‘, but particularly highlights Bellowhead, Queen and Steve Earle.
