Rhys began drumming at the a very early age, and quickly gained a reputation for being a rising talent in the industry.
At sixteen Rhys was a finalist in the UK Young Drummer of the Year, under the close scrutiny of judges Ian Paice (Deep Purple), Nick Mason Pink Floyd) and Karl Brazil (Robbie Williams, James Blunt).
Rhys had worked with many bands in and around South Wales, and has performed in an impressive array of theatere productions of shows such as ‘Grease’, ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘Godspell’, ‘Hairspray’, ‘Rent’ and ‘Fame’.
In 2013 Rhys started working with high end function bands and theatre shows including the West End show ‘ABBA Mania’, touring all around the UK, Europe and Scandinavia. This led to Rhys getting the opportunity to play and tour with artistes from the UK’s ‘X Factor’, and appearing on the show itself drumming for John Legend.
Rhys has also toured with up and coming indie artist Mike Dignam and is currently undertaking an exciting project with new and original band X&Y, writing balled infused indie pop in the studio with renowned writers and producers such as Toby Gad (Beyonce, Madonna and John Legend), Josh Record (Emilie Sande).
