Natal has signed yet another top player to its ever expanding roster. British
drummer Russell Gilbrook, member of Uriah Heap, is the latest artist to
Over the last few years Russell Gilbrook has been establishing himself on
the UK clinic tour scene impressing many with his unique brand of performing
and teaching. He has supported artists such as Greg Bissonette and completed a
tour with Liberty Devito. Russell continually strives to push himself
musically and has worked with a remarkably diverse range of artists: the respected
jazz musician Chris Barber and his band, Alan Price, as well as the heavier
projects including Rockzilla, Exposé, and of course filling the stool of the
late great Cozy Powell in Bedlam (where he played with brothers Dave and Denny
Ball, plus singer Frank Aiello). Russell has also played with ex-Camel
keyboard player Pete Bardens.
Russell's band, The Gods (Generators Of Distorted Sound), have completed
their debut album in the USA and will be lining up for Ozzfest next year.
Russell is also working on Tony Iommi's forthcoming album. His softer side is
further demonstrated on work with Lonnie Donnigan, John Farnham and even the
legendary Van Morrison.
Not content with just playing, Russell teaches on Sky's Musicians' Channel
and holds a position at the Brighton Institute of Modern Music; he has also
published several teaching guides. Russell is regarded as one of the UK's
finest drummers and clinician's and has toured his own specialist drum clinics
all over Europe.
