John Watt is a professional drummer living in the United Kingdom. From 2007 he was a member of industrial metal act October File on Candlelight Records until the band folded in 2016 after 3 studio albums, a live DVD and explosive live shows across both the UK and Europe.

Since 2012 John has also worked as a session drummer for a number of artists both on-stage and in the studio ranging from pop-rockers E of E, symphonic metal group EnkElination, goth-rock act Chasing Ghosts, the progressive bands Orgone Ocean Sonar and Fjords, studio project Beyond The Chaos, hard blues rock solo artist Andre Bakh and many more.

Following the demise of October File, John joined up with Fjords as a permanent member to help bring their material up to speed as a full band project after having recorded an unreleased EP for the band several years prior. Calling for a high level of technical musicianship, working with Fjords sees John writing and performing some of the most demanding yet musical parts of his career to date.
