His older brother is a professional double basses player on the London scene. He was born in 1985 and grew up in Reading and Oxford. His first exposure to performing regularly was as a New College Choir chorister (he was also on the CD Agnus Dei which was one the most popular classical albums of all time). He studied violin for 8 years as a child. Later, he tried out clarinet, piano and Javanese Gamelan drums, before finally choosing vibraphone and drums in late teens. As a youngster, he discovered jazz through his father’s records collection. Later, he saw American legends such as Joe Locke, Monty Alexander and Cedar Walton perform at Ronnie Scott’s.
