DESCRIPTION:

Gavin Harrison is an accomplished drummer who started playing at a young age and now a member of two British progressive bands, Porcupine Tree and King Crimson. Harrison was born on May 28, 1963, in Harrow, North London. While a young child, Harrison listened to many jazz records his father had collected. These records influenced him to start dreaming of becoming a drummer one day.

Though Harrison was an active drummer since his early teens, his major break through came in 2002 when he joined Porcupine Tree an English progressive rock band founded by Steven Wilson in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England. The group mostly plays a mixed genre of rock that involves traditional rock, psychedelia, and metal. Harrison had a close association with the band even before becoming a full time member. He joined after their drummer for eight years, Chris Maitland left the band.

The first major work Harrison did with the band was recording of an album that had been deemed to be a major hit then. The album was called In Absentia. This wasn’t the first major one undertaken by Porcupine Tree, though in a way it was after they were joined by Harrison. They had earlier produced Star Die: The Delirium Years, 1991 -1997, a few months after Harrison joined them. This album was mostly a collection of major songs the band had produced in those years.
In Absentia was a collection of 30 songs which Steven had written in the two years before its recording. Recordings were done in New York and in London and they contacted a renowned sound engineer Paul Northfield and sting arranger Dave Gregory to work with them in bringing the album together. What came up after the final mixing was done by Tim Palmer in Los Angeles, was a master piece. The album was released in September 2002 in USA and 2003 in Europe. The album went on to top charts in most countries in Europe. It also became the band’s greatest grosser of all time, selling over 100,000 copies within a year of its release.

In 2004, the band released a new version of the album, a 5.1 surround sound version. This version was mixed by Elliot Scheiner a respected producer who has also won a Grammy Award as a producer. This version not only realized huge sales, but also won an award for best 5.1 mix at the 2004 Los Angeles’ Surround Sound Music awards. The group took a four phased promotional tour to promote the album. The tour took them to Europe and North America. In one of these concerts, they performed with Opeth, a famous Swedish metal band. Their tour culminated in a homecoming concert in London Astoria. The concert that was held on November 30 2004 was all sold out, as enthusiastic fans longed to hear success song of the band.

In 2007, Harrison joined King Crimson a musical group founded in 1969 by guitarist Robert Fripp and drummer Michael Giles. This group plays basically progressive rock but they also incorporate other styles like jazz, classical and experimental music to psychedelic, New Wave, hard rock, gamelan and folk music.
Harrison is an author of two books, Rhythmic Illusions and Rhythmic Perspectives. These books offer rich insight to methods of playing drums. He has also released two instructional DVDs, namely Rhythmic Visions and Rhythmic Horizons. He has been voted “Best Progressive Rock drummer” by the readers of Modern Drummer Magazine in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

From a very happy drummer thank you to Paul and the whole team at drummers only

  • Avatar Dougie Millar ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Been a long time customer of drummers only and will continue to be as long as they are trading (which … More hopefully is a long long time). Always normally Chris I deal with and they are always happy to help and advise on questions about equipment. Brought my 1 year old son in to the store today and he loved it. Anything that he can hit with a drum stick that will make a very loud noise he loves.... So... Easy to see why he enjoyed the store. I don't doubt he will become a customer as he grows older himself. Big thanks for the help today on the purchase. Will be seeing you guys again very soon for more personal bank emptying expeditions.Dougie.

    How's the service? In a word, outstanding! Drummers Only is the only drum shop you should consider. … More They have an excellent selection of gear. If they don't have it, they can get it. Need to part-ex your current gear, no problem. The team live and breathe to serve the drumming community and are on hand to help you at every step of the way. Communication is excellent at every level. The best service I have received, hands down.
  • Avatar James Johnstone ★★★★★ a year ago
    We had a great first experience of Drummers Only today. Chris really pulled out all the stops to make … More it an enjoyable and memorable experience for our 8 year old daughter after travelling down from the North of Scotland to check out cymbals and drum heads that she’d been saving her pocket money for. She received great advice and was given all the time she needed to try things out and make up her mind. Thank you so much for your help today, it’s very much appreciated!

  • Avatar Ben Singer ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    Great bunch of guys. Super helpful and always a great range of stuff in the store.
  • Avatar Steve Brewer ★★★★★ a year ago
    I had an enquiry about using another brand's tom holder on a Sonor kit. The enquiry is quite specific … More and in no way could benefit a wider audience. Nevertheless the customer service has been excellent. Chris took time to understand fully my problem, made several useful suggestions and took it upon himself to experiment with potential suggestions on his own kits and out of hours too. I cannot praise the service I've received highly enough but can absolutely recommend Drummers Only as a company to do business with. This is how you hope all companies would operate.

    Not a drummer myself and no nothing about it but I recently made a purchase from here.Genuine 5 star … More service from start to finish, can't thank these guys enough for the outstanding service I received.Highly recommended and will most certainly use again if the occasion arises.
  • Avatar Graham Johnston ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Great service as always. Been buying almost all my gear (new and used) at Drummers Only since 2010. Numerous … More reasons but mainly the service and advice. I've dealt with most of the staff over the years, but mainly the now manager Chris who is a top lad and great asset to the store/company. Whether buying a new kit or a pair of sticks, he always takes time to give advice and support. This time it was a snare head; great advice on both selection and the black art of fitting & tuning. It's sounding sweet, thanks as always for the great service and support. THANKS CHRIS AND ALL AT DRUMMERS ONLY

  • Avatar Claire Griffiths ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Ordered a Yamaha electronic kit for my son for Christmas. Great service in store, delivered promptly. … More However the snare drum was a bit loose on the frame and the guys not only ordered a new part but delivered it to my home personally. Great guys, great service and great products.
  • Avatar Gordy Turner ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Very large store with large selection of drum sets and cymbals, highly knowledgeable and attentive staff … More with direct industry connections to get you exactly what you want. Warm and welcoming shopping experience , 5 stars
  • Avatar Damiano D ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Great drum shop has a huge selection and the customer service is decent. The guys in the shop are cool … More although they seem to be a carbon copy of each other. A little diversity in terms of personality wouldn't go a miss.

  • Avatar Matty Clarke ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    I'd been after an 18" floor tom for a while.Bought a second hand PDP. To be honest it doesn't … More even look second hand. Really happy with it especially as it was practically half the price! I'm in the recording studio tomorrow so it'll be being put to good use. Already rehearsed with it and it sounds pukka! Deep and booming. Can't recommend Drummers Only enough. Really happy and as always your goods are shipped prompt with lots of protection.
