MY WORK

 

ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Joe Montague and I'm a drummer from Leeds, UK.

I graduated from the renowned Jazz Course at Leeds College of Music in 2011 before embarking on a career as a session drummer. Undertaking a mix of touring and recording, I have worked with a variety of artists and producers including: Dancing Years, Sam Airey, Jarbird, Waylor, James Kenosha, Colin Elliot, Rob Ellis, David Pye, Richard Petch, Adam Martin, Mark Slater, Whiskas and many others.

In 2013 I joined Leeds based band Dancing Years, who received much acclaim in their short life together and toured the UK and Europe with the likes of Richard Hawley, George Ezra and Boy & Bear.

I currently tour worldwide in the internationally acclaimed theatre show Beatlemania, and have performed at The World Famous Cavern Club with The Cavern Club Beatles and worked with West End theatre tour Let It Be.

Since starting a family, being at home more has become important to me. Having spent lots of time in recording studios, setting up my own studio seemed the logical next step; meaning less time on the road whilst still having a creative output. The Old Surgery Recording Studio was born (my original studio was an old doctors surgery) and I now devote my time to recording drums on songs, touring with Beatlemania and enjoying time with my wife and two young daughters.

I am proud to be supported by Amedia Cymbals.
