Graham Costello

Graham Costello is a Scottish drummer, composer and visual artist based in Glasgow. He started playing drums at age six, being self-taught until he began studying Jazz at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland - where he graduated with a First Class Honours degree. He started his music career by being involved in Glasgow’s vibrant underground / independent scene, first with his noise rock duo Young Philadelphia then with the electro-psych krautrock band Outblinker.

They have been nominated for two Scottish Jazz Awards, including “Best Band”, and their debut self-titled EP for “Best Album”
