LEARN ALL ABOUT MIKEY

As a child, growing up in the small town of Leighton Buzzard, Mikey’s parents were both avid music lovers, so he grew up listening to an eclectic mix of rock, soul, pop and funk music; he fondly remembers being 4 years old, driving around with his Dad, listening to ‘Nevermind’ by Nirvana on full blast.

Mikey took up drumming at the age of 11 and it quickly became his life and passion, passing his grade 8 with a high-level distinction, aged only 15! In both 2011 and 2012, Mikey was a top ten finalist in the Young Drummer of the Year competition.

Since then, Mikey has continued to develop his skillset, drawing inspiration from a variety of musicians and styles; and, for over a decade, has played with some of the best musicians in the world (including touring with the great Albert Lee), whilst managing and teaching at his own private drum school.

Favourite Springsteen song: ‘The Promised Land’
