Grant Kershaw (Diagram of the Heart)
I started drumming at the age of 12 just after I joined high school. Since then I went on to become a finalist of Young Drummer Of The Year 2 years running (2007 & 2008). The following year in 2009 I went on to actually win the ‘Beat’ Young Drummer Of The Year competition.
Since that I went on to open up for Thomas Lang on his clinic tour in Manchester and also opened up for Steve White at 2 of his Clinics in the UK.
Now 18, I’ve been playing drums for 6 years, starting with the usual such as school bands to then went on and formed my own band. I’m now currently playing with a dance act called ‘Diagram Of The Heart’ signed to Deconstruction Records (Sony) thanks to a recommendation from no other than Steve White, which is hopefully the start of bigger and better things to come.
First single ‘Dead Famous’ due for release 11th July and the album ‘Vital Signs’ later in the year.
I’ll be performing at some major festivals over the summer including T4 on the Beach, V festival and Ibiza Rocks to name a few.
I’m Currently Endorsing Mapex Drums, Protection Racket Cases and Vic Firth Sticks.
