Matt Brooks


I've loved drums for as long as I can remember. I was drawn to the drums but had nothing but chopsticks, pots, and pans with which to express my desire until the age of 11 when my local church got a drum kit… The rest (as they say) is history.

While at University I got the call to work with an international band 4Real (based out of Austria) and toured with them for 2 years, which led to me doing clinic’s and workshops for musicians in Europe.

After a break from professional drumming, 2013 saw me take to the set depping gigs for Raleigh Ritchie (Columbia) and that re-ignited my passion to pursue a music career again. I’ve since worked with numerous artist’s as a Drummer, Musical Director, and Programmer and I continue to venture into different genres of music, travelling around the UK and the world doing what I love.

People describe me as a solid, musical, pocket drummer who plays different genres of music authentically, but (in my own words) describe my drumming as, “dynamic, expressive and energetic.”

I’ve had the privilege of working with Nicole Scherzinger, Megan Trainor, Jason Derulo, Chlöe Howl, Nina Nesbitt, Conor Maynard, Julian Peretta, Amber Olivier and more…

I’m currently touring with record breaking 6-time (in one night l) Brit Award winning singer / songwriter RAYE and doing lots of TV and promo internationally.
