After completing his studies at ICMP, drums alumni Matty Brown's career took off after he won Young Drummer Of The Year 2013. This accolade proved pivotal in securing a string of session drumming opportunities, his reputation grew quickly and has now led to him becoming one of the busiest young drummers in the pop session world.

For the past couple of years, Matty has been touring with London legend Stormzy, playing plenty of momentous shows including holding down the rhythm at his historic 2019 headline show on Glastonbury's mighty Pyramid stage.

Alongside Stormzy, Matty has drummed for Plan B, Rita Ora, Crystal Fighters, Fleur East, Jonas Blue, Jacob Banks, Dave, Aj Tracey, and Not3s. He has also recently completed a stint with British pop singer Olly Murs, drumming on his huge “All The Hits Arena Tour”. 

Matty recently revisited ICMP to deliver an exclusive masterclass with his friend and session bassist Levi Yarde, another key player in Stormzy's live band.

Within weeks of the masterclass, Matty drummed for Stormzy at his monumtental 2020 BRIT Awards, joined by many other ICMP talents.
