"I’m truly honoured to be a part of the legendary SONOR family. The obsession for me started when I was around 14 years old after finding a ‘Sonor Designer’ brochure, which I stared at for years. I eventually acquired a second hand but totally untouched maple set in blue sparkle which just gets better and better with age. Visiting the SONOR factory was an amazing experience, the level of detail and craftsmanship that goes into these drums is beyond anything I’d imagined." Joshua Blackmore
Since graduating from the Royal Academy Of Music with 1st Class Honours in 2008, Joshua has toured and collaborated with Troyka, Strobes, Tiny Beast, Marius Neset, Bill Laurance and many more.
In 2019 Joshua released his solo EP ’SiZE’, performing and sequencing all the instruments, showcasing angular riffs, euphoric synth layers, and immersive beats. He also runs the SiZE live band which features three of the UK's most exciting performers. This music was written as a new sound track to playing SEGA as a child.
Alongside performing, Joshua has extensive educational experience delivering masterclasses, group and individual tuition at Conservatories and Schools. Technique being a focus, Joshua composed a snare drum/drum kit exercise every day of the year in 2016 published via Instagram and incorporates these into his curriculum.
