ABOUT

BIO

Graham started playing piano at the age of 6, and added flute, trumpet and tenor horn to his instrumental repertoire before being given his first drum kit at the age of 15. Since then he has not turned back.

Having quickly graduated to performing with local originals bands around his home town, Graham then moved to Aberystwyth where he continued to play and gained experience working with live light and sound at a number of festivals in Wales.

After graduating university and moving to Northamptonshire in 2011, Graham joined Fraudio, helping them developed from a local Warwickshire pub band to one of the top wedding function bands in the country. Fraudio are now managed by Alive Network, and play in excess of 80 weddings, corporate events and private functions across the country every year.

In recent years Graham has also teamed up with Jess Vincent, recording drums and percussion on her album Shine with producer Reg Meuross at Nine Volt Leap studios. Graham continues to perform with Jess for her live UK performances when both of their schedules allow. Videos of some of these performances are available on the Media page.

In early 2016 Graham joined Cairo, a new UK-based progressive rock band formed by former Touchstone keyboardist Rob Cottingham. He recorded their debut album 'Say' at Outhouse Studios with producer John Mitchell. Say was released on the 3rd October 2016.

Graham also recorded all drums for Kim Seviour’s debut album Recover Is Learning (released on White Star Records 28 July 2017 ) and continues to be a part of Kim’s live band.

Alongside his performance duties, Graham has a thriving drum tuition business from his studio in Rushden, Northamptonshire; providing one-on-one private tuition to students of all abilities and ages.
