Welcome. This blog is for me to show my ideas, thoughts, influences, creations etc. I will be using it during my time at the University of Wales, Newport, where I study Creative Sound and Music.
My name is Ben Hughes and I’m from Cwmbran, South Wales.
I have been interested in music from a young age. I was brought up around a lot of music and always felt passionate about it. I started playing drums at the age of 15. I had 2 or 3 lessons before deciding to teach myself as I believe it’s important to develop your own style. I also learnt to play guitar and bass guitar in following years.
I have been in a few different bands since I was 15 as well as filling in for people when needed. I played drums in my first 2 bands and I play bass in my current band. They have all been very worthwhile and I have met some great people too.
