Mogwai borrowed Honeyblood’s drummer Cat Myers
There was a different – yet familiar – face joining Mogwai on stage at Maida Vale. Cat from fellow Scots Honeyblood proved a more than capable stand-in, in the absence of Martin Bulloch. Stuart said in an interview before going on stage: “Martin hurt his back a few weeks ago, Cat’s come in the last minute and just played and played and played. It’s sounding good I think!”

“Alex [Mackay], who’s been playing guitar, and Cat are amazing musicians. You only really need to show them how to play something once and they’ve got it”

'Howl & Echoes' Interview 03/04/2018

“The real hero of the evening was drummer Cat Myers, just along for the tour, who lashed away at the skins with the sincerity of a religious flagellant. Sweating like a racehorse, Myers’s fervency and precision didn’t seem to decline at all across a two-hour set that demanded energetic drum work on almost every track.”

My Work…

Original Music

As a composer I enjoy writing for bands, theatre and syncing. My work is quite varied, due the breadth of musicians and theatre companies I’ve worked with & due to my ongoing journey into music technology. Check out my 'original music' page for more info.

Session work

I am available for all kinds of session work. Currently I'm playing for KT Tunstall & last year I toured the world with Mogwai. I can sightread, play by ear or create parts entirely, with or without click and as a Roland artist, triggering samples is my speciality. Get in touch to find out more!

Drum Masterclasses

When I'm home from tour long enough to unpack my sticks, I teach! I love giving hybrid drumming masterclasses in Universities, Colleges & drum clinics. I also teach 1-1 Zoom lessons.

YouTube

I occasionally upload drum cam videos, behind the scenes banter & drum lessons. You can find me and subscribe at Youtube.com/CATPLAYSDRUMS

Theatre Work

I've played as a multi-instrumentalist for a number of theatre productions, including plays for the 'National Theatre of Scotland' & Brooklyn's 'The Team'. I have also composed for a few - Check out my Original music page to find out which shows I've been involved in.

Author

I have written a drum tuition book aimed at children which I hope to turn into an e-book & app in the future.
