Introducing Brian Macleod!!
Brian Macleod is a recent graduate (1st Class Honours) of Edinburgh Napier’s BA Popular Music Degree Course. He goes under the name ‘The Church Drummer’ through his official website,http://the-church-drummer.com.
Born and bred in Stornoway, on the Isle Of Lewis, Brian started playing drums at age 11 and moved to Edinburgh to study in 2008. Before then, though, he found considerable success in his first band, Gaelic/Celtic Rock act Sunrise Not Secular, who went on to record 3 Eps and tour Scotland and Europe, as well as appearing on BBC Alba a number of times.
Since moving to Edinburgh, Brian has honed his skills and developed his style by studying and by being active on the Edinburgh music scene. He has been involved with a number of groups, including his own ceilidh band, The Macleod Ceilidh Band, which holds a fine reputation around Scotland.
Currently Brian is also involved with Christian act Steph Macleod, as well as Christian organisations Origin Scotland (which Brian appeared on BBC’s Songs of Praise with), CLAN Gathering, Scripture Union and New Scottish Arts. He is active in Holy Trinity Church in Wester Hailes and loves serving the local church.
Brian also finds time to teach as part of the Royal Foundlings School of Rock team! Contact us for more details!!
One of Brian’s ambitions is to see young people raised up in their callings as beloved sons and daughters of the living God, giving all they’ve got for the name of Jesus. He loves the vision and passion of the Foundlings and is excited to be a part of the team.
