One of Britain’s most diverse percussionists, Joby is best known for his virtuosic, often lissom performances, daring collaborations, extensive education work, and regularly appears throughout the UK, Europe and beyond.

Dedicated to the development of the percussion repertoire, often in combination with electronics, Joby spends much of his time commissioning and recording new music, with Powerplant, New Noise and ensemblebash. Recent highlights have included UK tours with the Graham Fitkin Band and Martin Parker’s ‘Songs for an Airless Room’; releases of Gabriel Prokofiev’s Import/Export on Nonclassical and Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint on Signum.

Joby regularly performs, broadcasts and collaborates with artists including Stewart Copeland, Michael Finnissy, Graham Fitkin, Peter Gabriel, John Kenny, Akram Khan, Sarah Leonard, Joanna MacGregor, Peter Maxwell Davies, Nitin Sawhney, Andy Sheppard, Keith Tippett and Nana Vasconcelos, along with many of the world’s leading chamber ensembles. He is also a member of Stephen Deazley’s Edinburgh based, Music at the Brewhouse and in 2004 was appointed professor of percussion and director of ensembles at Junior Trinity College of Music.
