Born: 1991 Primary Instrument: Percussion
Felix Higginbottom Percussionist/Drummer/MD.
A young up-and-coming musician with an uncommonly strong background in a broad range of music (also playing the cello, bass guitar, piano, and singing). In 2007 He won the BBC Young Musicians equipment bursary. After Studying with Keith Fairbairn (first call London percussionist) and Alan Graham (vibraphone legend), Felix moved on to KCL and RAM to study a music degree. Having a very musical ear allows him to sit within a group, listening and communicating with the other musicians whilst remaining 'tight'. Felix regularly performs in public and profits from his ability as a proficient sight-reader, chart-reader, playing from memory and to a click track.
