Brit Award Abbey Past Pupil

Fantastic news for Gerry Morgan the drummer behind James Bay (Brit Award Best Male Solo Artist) of “Hold Back the River” fame. Gerry has had chart success before with an 80’s retro sounding band “Royworld” but his recent world touring success, chat show appearances (most recently “The Graham Norton Show”) and now the Brits Awards show how his incredible skill, commitment and determination have led to such acclaimed heights.

Gerry was a model ‘A’ grade A-level music student; original, creative, highly skilled as a percussionist, drummer, pianist, singer, violinist and lots more. His genius along with his sense of humor and enthusiasm always made the lessons fun and inspiring! Mr Wadsworth, his ‘A’ level teacher, founded the “Abbey Jazz Band” in 2002 and Gerry was the original drummer and really helped inspire the other boys around him. Since then the Music Department has keenly followed his rising career.

“Well done Gerry and good luck with the future!”
