Originally from Kent, she started playing the drums when she was 12 and graduated from Trinity Laban with first class honours in 2009.

She continued to work extensively with Julian Siegel and Simon Purcell whilst being invited to to teach on the Mediterranean Summer School.

Lorraine was asked to perform as part of a workshop led by international drummer Jeff Williams, who commented she had a “unique style” and “does not sound like anyone else.”

She has performed at prestigious venues including Tokyo Opera House, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, the Royal Albert Hall, Isle of Wight Jazz Festival, Big Sky Jazz Festival, the Vortex Jazz Club, Queen Elizabeth Hall, amongst may more, as well as recording for BBC Radio One’s “Live Lounge” and BBC Radio Four.

Lorraine has performed a series of gigs with accomplished singer Christine Tobin and her band, featuring Gilad Altzmon. She features on Christine’s latest recording Pelt.

A career highlight was to perform the Don Cherry tune “Guinea” with international bassist Dave Holland. This collaboration inspired her to form her latest quartet, paying tribute to the music of drummer Ed Blackwell.

Mentor Liam Noble features on Lorraine’s debut album Eden.
