Dream Cymbals signs Lloyd Ryan
Dream Cymbals is adding drum teacher and performer Lloyd Ryan to its expanding roster of UK artists.
Ryan is regarded as one of the U.K.’s most prolific drum educators with many of his students having gone on to achieve international success. In total, Lloyd’s students have recorded thirty three top 10 U.K. singles and thirty two top 10 U.K. albums. These include Phil Collins, Derrick McKenzie (Jamiroquai), Graham Broad (Roger Waters, Tina Turner), Ralph Salmins (Robbie Williams, Van Morrison, Björk), John Coghlan (Status Quo) and Nick Simms (Cornershop).
He has also had his own exciting career spanning four decades and is widely recognised as an expert of the big band style of drumming, having worked extensively with the Ken Mackintosh, Ray Ellington, Bob Miller and Edmundo Ros Big Bands, as well as major recording artists like Matt Monro, Tony Christie, Gene Vincent and PJ Proby.
Lloyd is one of the few U.K. drummers to have worked alongside the legendary Buddy Rich, as his support act at the Lewisham Jazz Festival in 1986.
