Paul Jones | Zildjian Drum Set Artist

Paul Jones

Independent. Alison Moyet, Josh Milan, xPropaganda

I started playing at age 12. A student practicing at school caught my attention, I took lessons at school and used to practice every lunch time in the music room. Bought my first ever kit First kit at age 16 from earnings from a summer job that I had in-between school and college. After a year of learning guitar chose the drumkit as my thing! I'm currently playing for Alison Moyet, (x)Propaganda and Josh Milan. Past artists include: Labrinth, Sigma, Don Blackman, Cleopatra, Mica Paris, Imagination, Rahsaan Patterson, Spacek and Rodney P, Bamboo from the Philippines. Pocket and groove are the things that make me tick and supporting singers/artists with charisma and a story to tell. I've been shaped by: the late 80s rave / house scene, ‘80s chart pop, ‘90s RnB, soul and hip hop, ‘90s and ‘00s rock and pop, ‘70s funk and early jungle leading to today’s drum and bass.
