John Watt - Professional Session Drummer

Distance willing to travel (miles)
YouTube video
Professional session drummer available for dep'ing in most styles - rock, metal, prog, pop, A.O.R, singer/songwriter, folk, smooth jazz and more. I can be booked for anything from a single show or one-track recording right through to an entire tour or album session if you require.

I'm 30, have 12 years of playing experience and almost 7 of those have now been spent working with a signed act in the UK. I've been lucky to have released 3 albums and a live CD/DVD worldwide so far and have also worked on a number of independent releases in a session context.

My live experience ranges from small pubs and clubs right through to full-scale mainstage festival appearances. In recent years I've performed at Download, Sonisphere (UK and Spain), Hellfest, Damnation, Bloodstock Open Air, Metalcamp, Hammerfest II and toured alongside Lacuna Coil, Prong and Fear Factory to name a few.

My session portfolio includes recording and/or live work for E of E (assorted live shows in early 2014 & drum-tech on McBusted 2014 tour), Orgone Ocean Sonar, EnkElination, Fjords, The Elusive Black Dog Ceilidh Band, Beyond The Chaos, Thesis Progression, Final Warning and many more.

I bring a friendly and professional attitude to each and every session regardless of whether it is on stage or in the studio. I learn parts quickly and am an intuitive player and I'm also comfortable with click tracks.

Additionally, all of my equipment is of a high standard to ensure that your performance is properly supported - I am a proud endorsing artist of Aquarian Drumheads, Premier Drums, Murat Diril Cymbals, Shaw Sticks, Flynn Drums, Tuner Fish Lug Locks, Duallist Pedals, Variphone In-Ears and Protection Racket cases.

My portfolio is available on my website along with further details regarding live and studio bookings.
