James – Drummer

James discovered the joy of hitting drums around 1997, and spent the next decade jamming and hitting everything as hard as he could in West Wales.

He decided to make his teenage dream come true in 2006 and packed his (drum) bags for London. He studied music at UWL and learned the tools of the trade, Latin percussion, and how to play without breaking 3 pairs of sticks every rehearsal.

Between 2010 and 2019 James worked with several Heavy Metal and Rock bands in London and the Midlands, hitting just as hard, but in a more professional manner.

In 2019 James found his new musical family with Very Santana, where he was relieved to find Latin Rock could be played LOUD!
