The beat began for me some twenty years ago, when at the tender age of nine I boarded my younger brother’s drum kit that had run aground in the dining room. With the splash of a cymbal I soon sailed off on a rhythmic ride, which has since taken me to venues across Europe. It has also gained me recognition from Scymtek cymbals, part of the Spaun Drum Company group who have recently taken Ross on as one of their endorsed artists.
In 2004 I successfully graduated with distinction from Oaklands College, Hertfordshire with a BTEC in Performing Arts. I then rolled on to ALRA - The Academy of Live Recorded Arts - where I achieved a National Diploma in Acting during 2007. Along side my studies I was always playing a different bands and spending my weekends playing in venues all over London and the home counties.
I currently drum for the Indie Pop act, The Gold, London Hardcore band, Snakes and solo artist Rocky Nti. I am also one third of wedding and events band The Undercover Monkeys.
Over the past few years I have been on a European tour with Panic! At The Disco, played at Glastonbury and Reading festivals and done a number of BBC introducing appearances for different artists.
Along side my drumming I am also a personal trainer. I have always had a real interest in fitness and helping other people achieve the fitness goals they want to reach! I have found over the years that keeping fit and managing my body well crosses over into my musical world. Stamina is one thing that is needed, certainly in a high energy hardcore show with Snakes so I try and aim my exercise routines towards building stamina and toning muscle rather than just 'getting big'!
