Artist Luke Chapman
Group: Dangerous Curves
Brand: Rech, Chaos Drum Sticks
Location: Winchelsea, VIC

Luke Chapman's early exposure to drumming came from his father, a fellow drummer, he started playing the drums at a young age but was truly inspired to pursue music seriously after hearing Guns N' Roses' "Appetite for Destruction" when he was 10 years old. This album ignited his passion for drumming and music in general.

While Luke appreciates a variety of music genres, he has a particular fondness for '80s hard rock due to its huge sound. He played in bands during high school and took a break from music in his early twenties. In 2015, he and his mates formed "Dangerous Curves" and have been performing across Australia ever since. Shortly after the band's formation, they released an EP, followed by two albums in 2018 and 2021 and are currently working on there next release.
