Fusion Festival - Birmingham
Cracking weekend! Spent the day just hanging out with the presenters of Capital FM, Clean Bandit, Rudimental, Labrinth, Sigma, Ella Henderson and many others back stage! It was an absolute pleasure to see how this side of the industry works behind the scenes, and it is now very apparent that I want every single drummers job on that stage!
It was so cool! I cannot wait for an opportunity like that to arise for myself to get working with the current artists of the day. That is my goal!
At the weekend I got to meet up with Labrinths drummer Jason Condison, was cool to meet up with him and see how he is enjoying the stage with Labrinth. Also, I got to meet up with Sigmas drummer Paul Jones, who was the guy who kindly invited me to the event and backstage at the Fusion Festival. Really nice guy and certainly knows his stuff (he was the drummer for Labrinth before Jason, see his website here: http://paulthefunkydrummer.com). Such an inspiration! And as an added bonus my dad got to hobnob with the celebs too as he did saw quick sketches back stage, nobody was expecting that and the drawings were very well received!
