UK Americana Awards 'Instrumentalist of the Year' 2020. Current drummer for The Wandering Hearts and Stick in the Wheel (Americana/Folk) Credits include: Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose movie 2019), She Drew the Gun, China Crisis, Fink, as well as BBC/BFI film soundtracks.

Hi, I'm Siân. I work full time in London, England as a drummer and percussionist and record remotely from my studio in North London. I use a range of microphones to get a creative sounding drum track, and spend time choosing the correct drum kit and cymbals so it will sonically sit perfectly with the other instruments on your track. I come from a classical percussion and folk music background, so I love blending drum sounds in this way and finding sounds that work well together. I also work with Addictive Drums making loops and programming beats which has been, for some artists, an incredibly useful creative process.

I have over a decade of experience recording and touring, and have played all over the world from small clubs to huge festivals of 30,000 people. I also have a lot of experience with recording and have worked in studios all over the UK, learning about drum sound for the past 15 years.

I am passionate about what I do and love meeting new people through music. Hit me up using the contact button and I'll look forward to working with you!

  1. Review by Randy H.

    Sian was fantastic to work with. I had a special project in which I wanted her to make a series of clips of her drumming for a video. She really did a fantastic job nailing everything that I needed. A real pro. Highly recommended.

    Siân always brings great vibes and the best drumming to whatever she does. Tons of enthusiasm and creativity, just amazing.
