I play Premier because I get exactly what I want and need. Not only a great responsive sound, but also a great look

Information

Nathaniel 'Tonez' Fuller is 23 years old and at the early age of 3 he developed a passion for drums. Nathaniel started his drumming career playing on pots and pans and from that point he has never stopped playing. Hailing from strong religious roots, Nathaniel grew up in church where he developed his love for music and would always be found sitting near the drums hoping to get a chance to play.

His big chance came when the main drummer at his church went off to university and Nathaniel seized his opportunity and took over. He continued to develop and grow confidence in his self but did not have a drum kit of his own. His luck changed when one day a friend told him about a drumming competition and the prize was a brand new drum kit. Nathaniel was really excited but at the same time really nervous, he would practice in any way possible, often at his friend’s house where he would play for 3 hours straight without fail and when he wasn’t around a drum kit he would perfect his rudiments on his bed.

The time came for the competition and of course, Nathaniel won the drum kit. Since then he has gone on to open up for phenomenal drummer Chris Coleman in a clinic and has played for the likes of Wretch 32, Jessie J, Dappy (from Ndubz), Conor Maynard, Rita Ora to name but a few. Nathaniel is currently holding the hot seat for UK rap sensation Tinie Tempah and is touring across the world with him.
