Liam Halloran was born and raised in Kettering and took up drums at the age of 11. Over the years took an interest in the piano and started having lessons at the age of 16. This combination of disciplines, along with the exposure to many musical avenues, led to him deciding to specialise in the Vibraphone after being truly inspired by a Joe Locke concert at the Royal Academy of Music in November 2007. He began his studies at the Birmingham Conservatoire on the classical percussion course but soon realised where his true passion lied. He switched straight into the second year of the Jazz course and continued to develop and broaden his horizons, receiving tuition from some of the finest musicians both in the country and in the world. He still maintains a high standard in all facets of his music, be it in orchestras, show bands, big bands, jazz ensembles or funk groups etc. He has played in some of the most famous concert halls in the world including the Royal Albert Hall, Symphony Hall, The Sage and Carnegie Hall, New York, as well as some of the smallest dingiest pubs of course.
