Percussionist Felix Higginbottom began with NYJO in 2007 when he was just 14 â€“ he was dissatisfied with his music tuition at school, feeling he wasnâ€™t being pushed, so he texted Bill Ashton and asked to join. Bill immediately replied that he was in urgent need of a percussion dep for a gig in Cambridge, so Felixâ€™s mum drove him up from their home in Oxford to join the band. Felix was educated at the Royal Accademy of Music and King's College London, before moving to Rio de Janeiro to focus on Brazillian hand-percussion he has performed with mutli-Grammy winning Jazz power house Snarky Puppy, Scotish drumming sentation Corrie Dick and ground breaking cross-over band Melt Yourself Down.
