Paul Shrimpton has been drumming for over 30 years, and in that time has developed into a damn fine musician, even if we say so ourselves!

Paul brings a willingness to try anything at all – any style, any genre (with the possible exception of Country!) – and isn’t afraid to go out on a limb, even to the extent of once playing a song in a gig that he’d never ever heard….! We wouldn’t make him do that – we’d at least let him listen to the track once through before the gig!

Paul is forever trying to get us to play more of his beloved 80s music. To be fair, most of it is pretty good...

Paul’s toured, done studio session work, and is now enjoying life with Riser!

Paul plays Mapex, a range of snares, and Istanbul and Sabian cymbals,
