Adele, Alicia Keys & Declan McKenna Drummers Join Porter & Davies

Porter & Davies proudly announce more world class drummers have joined their ever growing family. Derrick Wright for Adele, Mike Reid for Alicia Keys, Gabi King for Declan McKenna and Elijah Godson are among the many drummers choosing to use the company’s inspired silent tactile monitors.

Derrick Wright is a respected and sought after drummer. Having worked with many of the world’s top artists, he is currently supporting Grammy award winner Adele at her Las Vegas residency. He is now the proud owner of two TT6 Equipped Thrones.

Another notable drummer Mike Reid, known for his work with Rhianna, Janet Jackson and Alicia Keys is enjoying his new BC2 which he used on her 2022 world tour. Mike played at the 2023 Superbowl with Rhianna.

Gabi King, the up and coming drummer playing in the Declan McKenna band, said: ‘Absolutely loving my BC2!! Keeps my drums thumping night after night!’. Her confident grooves can be heard when she supports McKenna at the Leeds / Reading Festival this summer.

Popular drummer and music producer, Elijah Godson who plays the drums for 2023 Brit Award nomi-nee Kojey Radical also has a BC2. He said: ’Using my BC2 has made my whole drumming experience come to life. I love that I am able to send absolutely anything I desire to it which makes playing so much more fun. Using in-ears can make you feel quite isolated whilst playing, but my BC2 helps me to still feel and know where I am in the music.’

Philo Tsoungui joins Mars Volta who have reunited after more than a decade. The self-titled album from this reunion was released late last year and she can be seen playing live in the USA this summer using her BC2rm.  Pulp are reforming for gigs in 2023. Long term drummer, Nick Banks, will also be using his BC2rm playing with the Mercury prize winning band. Legendary rock band Counting Crows plan to tour Australia in 2023 and their longstanding drummer Jim Bogois, will be taking his BC2 with him.

Other new members of the Porter & Davies family include Sebastian Schmidt (Milky Chance), JoeSeaward (Glass Animals), William Goldsmith (Sunny Day Real Estate), Vicky O’Neon (Anastacia), James Hunt (Rüfüs Du Sol), Adam Carson (AFI) and Pat Thetic (Anti-Flag). O’Neon said: ‘The BC2 has been a real game changer for me. It is powerful and compact with incredible precision. Thanks to the BC2 I no longer need subs on stage, which also makes our monitor and sound engineer’s job so much easier. The BC2 is truly your perfect companion on the road.’
