Kit is a fantastic teacher, and his teaching covers a wide range of styles. After studying with him over two years, I feel I’ve become a much better drummer in pretty much all aspects. — Joe Greenacre, former drumkit student

Hello! I am a professional musician, in my twenties, based in Norwich, UK.

I specialise in percussion (drumkit, orchestral percussion and a variety of ethnic percussion) and keyboards (piano, electric piano, Hammond organ, synths, etc.); I am available to hire for studio sessions and live work across the UK, or abroad. I also write and/or arrange music to commission and produce the tracks in my studio here in Norwich. In 2014 I released my first solo album, Bones From My Back, featuring sixteen original songs.

I also teach music, both privately, and in local schools and youth music projects – including working as a percussion tutor for Sistema In Norwich, and working with musical theatre students at Music Arts Project.

If you're interested in learning more about me, or in more information about my teaching, or performances, please navigate around the site using the links above.

Aside from music, I enjoy cooking, photography, watching Formula 1, supporting Norwich City Football Club, writing my Blog, and a variety of sports, especially table tennis, sailing and surfing.

Thank you for taking the time to look around my website - please don't hesitate to get in touch!

In the studio with Jamie Roe Band

Here are a few photos from this weekend’s sessions with the Jamie Roe Band – recording with Lee Jacobs at Tide’s Reach Studio on the east coast, working on our first set of studio tracks for the new project.

 

Keep an eye out for the tracks, when they’re available.

Witchers album launch party

Well, I’m finally able to announce that the long-awaited debut Witchers album will be released on Monday 4th May 2015 – and we will be playing a headline show at The Waterfront Studio in Norwich to celebrate the album’s release on Thursday 7th May 2015.

It will be three years since we began work on the album, and almost two years since we last played live, so we’re very excited about getting on stage again and playing our music for you all!

I hope to see lots of you there on 7th May to celebrate the launch of the album with us – tickets are available from any of the band members, or online.

Listen to a track from the album now:

As you may have noticed, Witchers have been on something of a ‘hiatus’ lately.  We’ve been through a couple of line-up changes, and various of the band members’ personal lives have taken priority recently.  However, out long-awaited self-titled album Witchers will be finally be released this year, in May – after three years of work! – and tomorrow you will have an opportunity to listen to Undivided, one of the tracks from the album, on Soundcloud for the very first time.

Personally, I’m extremely proud of my involvement with Witchers and my playing on this album; it’s been a long time coming, but I can’t wait for people to hear the fruits of all our hard work!

The idea is that, as we get closer to the release date there will be some live shows (our first live appearances since Cambridge Rock Festival in August 2013!) to promote the album, and to get people talking about Witchers again.  I will be able to reveal more about these shows, and more about the record in general and its release, nearer the time.

In the meantime, however, please ‘Like’ Witchers on Facebook, and follow our Twitter account – and, most importantly, check out Undivided online tomorrow!  We love it, and we hope you will too!
