Martin Drew

Martin was born 11 February 1944, in Northampton, England, and started to play the drums when he was six years old. He played his first professional engagement at thirteen. Studying with the late George Fierstone gave Martin a solid musical and technical background that has proved to be invaluable over the years, which he still strives to improve upon.

He is recognized as a dedicated, travelled, experienced and respected musician, having played with, been requested by, and constantly in demand to play with many of the world's great musicians. Martin has a wealth of experience, natural ability, a fine technique and the skill to adapt and fit into many different kinds of playing situations. He has been playing for over 50 years, won many awards, and has entries in various books and encyclopaedias all over the world. Martin's track record is one to be proud of, and says more about his career than he could ever say himself.
