Cameron Jull - Drums & Backing Vocals

Cameron Jull says with no friends and a lot of time on his hands the choice to become a drummer was easy! That was 30 years ago. Now he has an impressive drumming resume including high school drum corps, 5 years drum teaching in a Melbourne music shop - starting with 1 student a week and ending up with over 30, extensive recording experience, and playing in more bands than he can remember across  genres such as metal, jazz/rock fusion, funk rock, pop, and modern heavy rock. He even admits to a few appearances on ABC’s Rage with original 80’s pop band Tibet. Cameron prefers to play Sonar drums with Saibian Percussion.

He lists Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, Jeff Pocaro, Ian Paice and Buddy Rich as influences on his style, but none moreso than Virgil Donati. Cam’s drum solos have to be seen to be believed..
