Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders is now using Porter & Davies' BC2 drum monitoring system. Matt and his band recently headlined Reading Festival and he will be using his system on the forthcoming tours of North and South America.
Another new endorsing artist is talented young drummer Dexter Hercules currently holding the drum throne for Rita Ora. Joining him and the others are versatile stickman "Dirty" Arya Goggin (Skindred), Jamiel Blake (Sam Smith), and the "Human Drum Machine" John Jenkins (Lily Allen/Example), plus Ian Matthews with Kasabian, recent winners of Q Magazines Best band in the World Today award.
The BC2 and BC Gigster are ideal for all types of musical genres and the other new endorsers span a wide range of styles including metal (Valentino Arteaga of Of Mice And Men), dance (Ben Kennedy of Foxes), country (Billy Thomas of Vince Gill, Rich Redmond of Jason Aldean) and Darryl Woolfolk (of Gladys Knight) an in demand R & B/urban/smooth jazz drummer. They, along with John Humphrey (Toyah) and rock drummers Shannon Forrest (Toto), Tony Palermo (Papa Roach), Michael Vanderhule (Y&T) and Alexis Nunez (Kooks) have all recently become Porter & Davies endorsers.
The drumming world has watched Porter & Davies and their BC2 and BC Gigster silent drum-monitoring systems grow over the last few years into a serious presence on the drumming stage. Artists have been so impressed with these innovative pieces of kit they have invested their own money and bought their systems. This has helped the company to continue investing in product research and development.
The new artists join a prestigious roster of drummers, which includes Kenny Aronoff, Clem Burke, Billy Cobham, Gerald Heyward, Tommy Lee, Jojo Mayer, John "JR" Robinson, Steve White and Matt Sorum to name just a few.
