success story Jamie Morrison

Curved top

In September 2012, Jamie Morrison took over the drum stool for top indie act The Stereophonics, replacing Javier Weyler.

However, Jamie didn’t just land the job by chance. He played a pivotal role in the rise of The Noisettes, playing on the 2009 number one album Wild Young Hearts with its hit Go Baby Go (Don’t Upset The Rhythm). With The Noisettes he appeared on top TV shows including Jonathan Ross and Jools Holland.

Jamie left The Noisettes in January 2010 to work on the recording of KT Tunstall’s Tiger Suite album. He then went on to drum for Welsh star, Duffy, as well as Motown legend Martha Reed and the Vandellas. He has also toured with upcoming UK artist Rebecca Ferguson. He is endorsed by Premier drums.

Jamie started his career by coming to study at Access, initially at our centre in Cambridge, and then on the Artist Development course in London. He arrived to us with an upbringing in jazz, but through his work with other musicians at Access, he began to broaden his repertoire and style to become the internationally-renowned musician he is today.
