Ian Mosley, drummer with the iconic UK progressive rock band Marillion, has joined the growing British Drum Co. family of artists.
Ian is a respected drummer with an impressive CV which includes Darryl Way, Gordon Giltrap and Steve Hackett. He has been with Marillion since 1984 and has just finished recording the band’s twentieth studio album on his new British Drum Co. Legend drum kit.
Mel Stewart, Brand Development Manager at British Drum Co., says, “It is my pleasure to welcome the legend that is Ian Mosley to our British Drum Co. artist family. Ian has a formidable reputation as a player and is revered by drumming fans worldwide. I am delighted that Ian has selected BDC as his drum brand of choice.

British Drum Co. Managing Director, Al Murray, adds: “I have seen Marillion play many, many times but to now be in a position to say that Ian is playing a British Drum Co. drum kit makes me incredibly proud. What can I say – he’s a drumming Legend playing a drumming Legend!”
Ian Mosley himself has this to say about joining BDC: “In recent years, the British Drum Co. brand has been grabbing my attention more and more. I’ve seen and heard some amazing things about these drums and at the start of our new album writing sessions, I decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about. I visited the factory and was blown away by the culture and attitude to the craft of drum making that Keith has instilled there. The drums that BDC have made for me are out of this world and are sounding great in the studio. I cannot wait to get out on tour and bring these drums to life!”
