“I like to play” Garth Algar
I am Owen Curtis Williams and I am a drummer (drummist) and person of earth. Born in Durham, England in the 80′s. I am currently based in Glasgow, Scotland.
I am a self taught musician and have been playing and performing regularly since the late 90s.
I have played lots of gigs all around the place.
I have played on a few records.
I have also participated in group and solo performance art pieces, both musically and physically.
I have been very lucky to play with many fine musicians and collaborate in lots different styles, forms, textures, tastes, tones, shapes, colors, environments and atmospheres.
I love to play drums and express myself through rhythm, sound and movement (and silly faces)
I like music cause it is an invisible magic.
My power animal is a bird of prey.
