Stuart started drumming after two important discovery´s, one was his Granddad’s old jazz kit stored away somewhere in his parents attic and the other was Nirvana. Within a few years he´d co-founded the UK pop-punk band the ´DumDums´, released the album ´It Goes Without Saying´ and toured the world extensively, including shows with the likes of Snow Patrol, Paul Weller, Robbie Williams and Bon Jovi. Since the bands split, apart from his own projects, Stuart has played on recordings by Lissie, Mania and Girls Aloud and toured with indie-songstress Carina Round. In 2007 he stepped away from the drums for a while becoming the drum tech and live keyboard player for Razorlight.
Stuart now plays drums for American singer Lissie whilst continuing to play sessions live and in the studio. He also has his own band, Rogue States based here in the Uk.
