Online drum lessons!

Online lessons are available now for all drummers out there looking to improve technique, musicality, timing, feel, studio experience, soloing, or maybe you want to talk about how to get on in the music industry. I can cover all these topics and more, including chatting about the artists that I’ve worked with and pass on […]

New Clara Ponty Album – ‘Face to the Sun’

I’m happy to see that this album is now available! I have good memories of tracking drums with the amazing Stuart Bruce at his studio in Batheaston, over a course of 5 late night sessions. The tracks were fun to work on as they are a little quirky and we did some really interesting things […]

Recording My Solo Project!

I have been working on some music over the past 3 years, secretly beavering away writing stuff on my laptop between tours, sessions and life! These ideas and songs are finally seeing the light of day and I’ve started putting ‘live’ drums down and running sessions with various friends coming in to play on tracks. […]

The Palace Drum Camp.

I really enjoyed the Palace Drum Camp in February, it was bliss to spend so much time in the company of so many great drumming friends and enthusiastic drummers. It was 3 days of drumming, laughing and top conversation with everyone who attended. It is heart warming to know that drummers are still the only […]

Goodbye to Dad Xxx

I lost my Father on February the 14th and things have been a little difficult ever since. I have a great family and support system of friends here who have been there and continue to be there for me, for which I’ll forever be grateful. I have been a little quiet here for obvious reasons, […]

Instinct Sounds drum clinic.

It was great to perform a masterclass in my local area a few weeks ago for the drum students at Instinct Sounds in Chippenham. It was another fab evening meeting drummers of all ages and levels, great questions were asked and it was a very interactive crowd. I hope to return again to perform some […]

Rob visits Barnsley’s drummers.

I really enjoyed visiting Barnsley and performing a workshop and masterclass for many up and coming drummers in the area. It was a great trip and I met so many enthusiastic young drummers who all played so well! Local drum tutors Keith Ramskill and Bob Wynne were there with their pupils and helped make the […]

Loreena McKennitt live at the Royal Albert Hall CD

Proud to say that the new album from Loreena McKennitt is now available to buy at all the usual online and high street retailers. We recorded the album earlier this year when we performed at the majestic Royal Albert Hall in London. It was a landmark gig for me and I felt so proud to […]

Loreena McKennitt Canadian Tour!

I have just returned from a very successful tour of Canada with Loreena McKennitt and the band. Canadian audiences have always been excellent and on this trip they certainly didn’t let us down. Every venue was sold out and we played some very beautiful concert halls and met some wonderful fans.  I have always loved […]
