Josh fell in love with drums at a very young age, watching gospel drummers and guys at his local church play. He currently performs with a functions band called The Deps and a rock band called San Demas. He also sessions for a number of bands and artists around the UK. Josh has played alongside bands such as Kids in Glass Houses, Exit Ten, First Signs of Frost, Canterbury, Bury Tomorrow, You Me at Six, Fell Silent and Proceed, headlining festivals and venues such as Scala London, The Garage Islington and Aylesbury Waterside Theatre. His previous projects had a number of national releases including 2 albums and an EP with music videos shot for the 2 main singles. One of which topped the national Christian rock charts. In 2015 he made the transition to SJC drums and has a fantastic relationship with them and has had the opportunity to play and record at some really memorable places. Recently, with Focusrite & Novation for their downloadable drum pack. Josh also has endorsement deals with Collision Drumsticks and Istanbul Mehmet cymbals. “WORKING WITH JOSH…either in a studio or film environment is a truly positive experience. I never need to worry about certain grooves or performance nuances as he is so adaptable when put on the spot. We got Josh in to record a drum pack for Focusrite which consisted of a multitude of loops and hits. We nailed it in a day, simply because Josh was so on point and knew exactly what we needed. That particular pack was allegedly the most downloaded item of content Focusrite had ever offered to their customers and is most probably being used in a number of productions currently. In a live scenario, he handles pressure and always maintains and manages a solid rhythm section throughout the show. It’s a pleasure to work with him and he brings a lot of personality and happiness into the studio. If you don’t hire him, someone else will and most probably already is!” — TIM HARBOUR, Focusrite & Novation. Owner SOHO MILLS STUDIOS.
I met the Jamma crew at a gig in Manchester, and after getting to know them was invited to be the regional 'Jambassador' for Essex, UK. As an artist it's been great and they really helped me to push my latest single. As a 'Jambassador; they sent me a ton of free merch and personalised business cards and pay for me to check out gigs in my region to sign up artists and venues! I also was invited to perform on their professionally filmed podcast series, 'The Jamma Show' which was not only great fun but also a great way to get my music out to my fans!
We have recently signed up to Jamma and love that we can have a dedicated page for our band and also individual pages allowing us to advertise ourselves for solo work and showcase our material as a group and as separate band members. It's also great to be able to find potential new band members and stand in DEP musicians as and when we need them

I registered with Jamma before the launch and I was lucky enough to perform at their '331' launch event. Since going live I have used the website to build an artist page and upload all my content as well as connect to find paid gigs! It's super easy to use and they have always been there to support me whenever needed. Not only have I found paid work, but I have also been featured on podcasts and various special marketing projects which have been great for exposure, especially in these uncertain times. Jamma also takes 0% commission on anything I earn through the platform, and it's even free to use right now!
