Zeke Martin

Born in Brussels in 1973, Zeke Martin entered the world with a pair of drumsticks in his hands. Influenced by his father, Stu Martin, who played with Jazz greats such as Herbie Hancock, John McLaughlin, Charles Mingus, Dave Holland and Quincy Jones to name a few, Zeke’s musical repertoire includes a blend of Jazz, Funk, R&B, Reggae, Rock and more.

In 1985, at the age of 12, Zeke had his first gig with Steve Lacy, in France. Shortly after, he moved to the United States where he began a successful career, including the formation of Zeke Martin & The Oracle in 2000. Since then The Oracle has released four CD’s entitled LANDSCAPES (2001), FUNKY STUFF (2006), U4RIA (2009), 4 (2012) and SAY WHAT (2014)

Ian Evans

Ian is a professional drummer and percussionist from the South West of England. Years of playing experience is backed up with a solid musical education. Whatever the gig, Ian's professional performance and attitude are what you need, along with the great feel only created by a live drummer! If you're looking for a new drummer for your band, a dep for some gigs, a session guy for some studio work, someone to record you some high quality drum tracks or someone to play for a theatrical show or musical, you're in the right place. My playing career began at the tender age of 3. Hailing from a musical family I don't think I had much of a choice in the matter! Since then, I've worked with numerous bands live, in the studio, in panto, musicals and stage shows. Along with playing live, I have a limited number of slots for private tution
