I am Jamie,
I’m a Drummer/Percussionist
I started playing in 2007: doing basic grades in Snare Drum, Tuned Percussion and eventually, Drum Kit. I have since progressed to level three grades and qualifications in music.
Since 2013, I have been playing in bands, composing, recording and performing live. I have also depped for other players. When I started at college, I picked up playing Cajón and have continue with this in my current bands.
My Previous Work:
My first band was called Afterthought Playground. We covered songs, played in and around Leicester, composed our own originals and even had a poster designed by our good friend Jose:
Here’s Our Facebook Page
In the summer of 2014, I was asked to dep for the Drummer in Hobo Low, a truly amazing Blues band. Together, we played a number of originals and covers of Muddy Waters and Seasick Steve over an hour set. If you want check out some quality blues, have a listen to their Performance at The Shed, Leicester:
Then I got to college and met my band: the now called Dead Question, we play Bluesy Grunge with an electric stage show and a front-man with a poet’s tongue.
We continue to gig in and around Leicester, we compose originals with our unique blend of influences from Jack White, Led Zeppelin, Queens of The Stone Age and other ingredient which is a family secret.
I also gig in a (more commercially viable) Blues covers band: Blues De La Ceaux around Leicester and play Cajón for Acid Haystack and the Shattered Villain in Leicester and Manchester. They were originally a Folk-ish duo composing songs about drinking, killing and… there’s a love song called Tramadol. They have expanded by about three times the size now adding more vocals, bass and drums to the lineup. You can find them…
I am also exploring the possibilities of Trip Hop and Poetry among other things at the moment, which will hopefully bring out some interesting things soon enough…
