Jack Sutton-Bassett DRUMMER KING CREATURE
Jack completed a Music Diploma Level 3 course at St Austell and is now a drummer in rock and roll band King Creature. Since joining the band Jack has toured China, America and Europe and recorded at Abbey Road. “I enrolled on the diploma because I wanted to study a course that would allow me to play music. I had a great time at the College and I met the guitar player who now plays in King Creature. One of the best things about being part of a band is travelling the world and meeting new people.”
