Ash Soan and Neal Wilkinson Interview Part 2
In this episode found out how the Pocket Club Tour came about, and get a taste of the action you’ll be seeing across the 11 date tour.
Ash Soan comments,
"With this video footage and indeed the tour we are aiming to bring the conversation back to what the instrument is actually about; to showcase and discuss what it's musical 'job' is. Playing riffs at a million miles an hour and demonstrating complicated techniques is not what Neal and I are about - this time round we want to inform and inspire by taking a more intimate, simple - in conversation with approach. We really believe the viewers and people coming to the events will learn more and appreciate that keeping it simple is the best strategy for getting work, and fitting in with fellow band members more effectively and creatively."
Between them Ash Soan and Neal Wilkinson are the drummers of choice for many of the UK's major artists including Robbie Williams, Van Morrison, Adele, Olly Murs, Cee Lo Green, James Morrison and Duffy.
