Benjamin Brannelly

Drums & Composition

Benjamin Brannelly is a UK based professional drummer, composer and teacher available to hire.


"Ben's orchestration creates interest and movement, exploiting all that is good in harmony and rubato. These two elements combined, enthralled the audience... and we await the next composition by Benjamin Brannelly with eager anticipation."

Samantha Gorton (Vocal Coach - Choirs Connected)

Composition? For a drummer? I know it seems like a strange concept, but I am one such musician and I draw heavily from the music of Hans Zimmer, Carter Burwell and Alexandre Desplat. Specialising in film composition, I love to blend live and orchestral instruments with electronic and synthetic sounds.

I play piano as well as being able to write lyrics and, obviously, play the drums. My composition ‘Forget Me (Fly Away)’ was rearranged and performed at The Palace Theatre, Redditch in July 2017 and my most recent piece was a solo for drum kit entitled ‘Shufflet’ which I performed live at my Artist Showcase - License to Groove in 2017.

I am always looking for new projects to take on, so if you wish to help with this then feel free to contact me.
