John Watt is a professional session drummer living in the United Kingdom. He is known predominantly for his work with industrial metal band October File (which has taken him to stages across Europe and seen several albums released worldwide since 2007) but also for his session portfolio which has covered everything from pop/rock, blues and folk right through to prog and extreme metal.
John prides himself on his precision and adaptability whilst still being able to offer a personal organic sound all of his own and is a proud endorsing artist for DrumDial, Premier Drums, Aquarian Drumheads, Flynn Drums, Shaw Sticks, Murat Diril Cymbals, TunerFish LugLocks, Protection Racket Cases and Variphone/Westone In-Ears.
“In my line of work I need to be able to tune drums both quickly and accurately – a well tuned drum is everything in the studio and on stage. Whether I’m playing, teching or even teaching my DrumDial goes everywhere with me. Session after session and show after show I’m able to offer every client accurate, fast and (most importantly) repeatable drum tones in a matter of seconds with absolute ease.”
