Stan will be leading the drum workshop at Rock Academy 18 during week 2.
Stan Bicknell is very unique in the world of modern drumming. With over 20 years of experience behind the kit, touring and recording with artists such as Kimbra, Ecca Vandal, and Miami Horror, and running Drummers Summit Melbourne, AUs largest shedding community, Stan decided to excuse himself from his very successful life as a touring musician to focus on developing his playing more, raising his family, and growing his wholesale coffee roasting business, Rumble Coffee Roasters. Without a live audience to play to, he found on Instagram a great outlet for his amazing creativity and need to perform – and with that came a new found success, as he became one of the most popular drummers on social media.
He is known for his creative chops, deep pocket and infamous single kick technique as well as his strong work ethic and focussed mindset, always sighting the basics of discipline as the secret to his success. This caught the attention of Jared Falk, owner and creator of acclaimed online drum education platform Drumeo, based in Vancouver Canada, inviting Stan over as a featured artist.
2020 will see Stan back on stage filling in with pop/punk band Tonight Alive, as well as prepping for a Yamaha Drum Clinic tour and performing at more drum festivals locally, and overseas.
