Chris Allison (AUS)

With 18 years experience behind the kit, I’ve been fortunate to play drums around Australia playing various styles of music – from prog to blues, from free-jazz to punk. Having studied drums with some of Australia’s finest drummers (most notably Dr Dave Goodman & Dr Andy Gander, among others), I have also completed a Bachelor of Music in Drum Set performance at the Australian Institute of Music in 2007. Teaching has been a large part of the last 10+ years, educating students of all ages & playing levels about the ins & outs of drumming across a broad range of styles & techniques. I’ve been fortunate to work in the studio with Grammy & ARIA nominated producers as both a session musician & in my own projects.

2018 offers me many new exciting opportunities & challenges around the world, having been asked to fill the recording & touring drumming chair for prog guitarist sensation Plini.
