"AJ played for me on my UK Tour and brings a really professional and thoughtful approach to his drumming.
His parts are always crafted with the song in mind, so I would strongly recommend him to any singer/songwriters out there looking for a session drummer"

Danny McMahon

(Award Winning UK Country Artist / Producer)

"It’s always a great pleasure working with AJ, whether it be in a live or studio scenario. His top professionalism is met with a super positive attitude and easy going character, which makes AJ a session drummer you can rely on, who is guaranteed to do a slick, quality job time and time again."

Andrea Succi

(Music Producer, Recording and Mixing Engineer at Puzzle Maker Studios)

"AJ just recorded drums on one of our tracks, and he was super easy to work with. He's super dedicated and professional to work with as well as being easy going and openminded. Rather than having to tell him what to do, it naturally ended up being more of a collaboration with both parts inputting. The end result was exactly how I hoped it would sound like."
Stian Verdøy
(Producer / Singer Songwriter / FirewoodIsland)

“AJ is professional , reliable,  and always gives more of a performance than is ever expected. He brings the songs to life, and I’ve never had a bad result when working with him”
Tom Jobling

"AJ was very professional. He learnt the material very quickly. No rehearsal required. He showed up to the gig knowing the material and played with lots of feel and enthusiasm!"

“AJ is an absolute pro, I loved playing with him. He was super prepared , calm throughout a crazy day and l smashed the gig. Really hope we get to work together again soon”
Tina Boonstra
(Singer Songwriter / Solo Artist)

Kat Branch

"AJ is a great and engaging clinician, wise beyond his years. his ideas are fresh and modern and his playing is inspiring. AJ’s clinics are not only educational but fun as well."

Dave Major

(Drummer, Clinician, Educator, YouTuber)

"AJ led a drum masterclass as a part of a training day we were running - his session ended up being the most popular of the day amongst the delegates! He is professional, creative and an excellent trainer who we would work with again without hesitation."

Joe Hardy

(Worship Leader; Yeovil Community Church, New Wine Conference)

"I have been using AJ for my live shows for close to 6 years, and have always found him to be an extremely professional and reliable person with a commitment to creating a professional show that is true to any artists sound. Would 100% recommend"


(UK Electro/Urban/Oriental Pop Artist & Producer)

"AJ very quickly settled into the team at Bristol Rock Centre and has been one of our most reliable tutors; arriving on time and being well prepared for anything we have asked him to do. He regularly receives glowing feedback for his lessons, and he is brilliant at helping students of any age feel relaxed in his company.  AJ has exceeded expectations, displaying both fantastic skill, and a refreshing, enthusiastic and professional attitude towards his work.."

Becky Baldwin

(Owner at Bristol Rock Centre)

"One of my highlights for 2018 was to have the pleasure of being invited to participate in the inaugural Drummers' Odyssey Camp. AJ has created a first class event which delivers very strongly for both participants and tutors. The organisation is as slick and professional as the most long established drum camps in which I have participated. The Drummers' Odyssey Camp deserves its place on the international stage and in making it happen AJ Rousell adds entrepreneur to his already distinguished achievements as drummer, educator, clinician and author."

Pete Cater
