A short way to the top in a drum role for Rocky teenager

BUSBY Marou, Wendy Matthews, Phil Emmanuel, Slim Dusty's daughter Anne Kirkpatrick and Bill Chambers are just a few of the artists Logan Brewster has already performed with at just 17.

The young Rockhampton drummer is also part of several acts around the region, including former X-Factor contestant Zach Russell and The Short Fall.

His most recent achievement however was performing with iconic Australian singer Wendy Matthews and local sensation Kate Leahy on their region tour recently.

Logan said the experience was great.

"I had heaps of fun," he said Wednesday.

"I don't think it could've gone any better. Kate Leahy did such a good job of organising it, she put a lot of time and effort into it."

His musical influences merge across all genres, with Logan stating it was more the sound rather than the style that attracted his attention.

"I just like listening to anything that sounds good, really," he said.

"I like listening to songs that are well-produced. I like to play as many different styles as I can because I think it makes you more versatile."

But it was always the drummer rather than the guitarist or front man that caught Logan's eye.

"I started playing the drums about 13 years ago. My grandfather plays the guitar and taught me how but I didn't really like it," he said.

"But whenever I saw a band playing I would always be watching the drummer. I like that it's a high energy thing."

Logan said he'd like to make drumming a career, and with his musical resume already stacked high with top acts, it's doubtful he'll have any trouble.

"While I'm young I'd like to play with as many people as I can," he said.

"I actually start teaching drumming lessons tomorrow (Friday) at Script Music."
