With a background in Jazz, Classical and Contemporary Music, Lachlan has been fortunate to perform as a drummer with some of the most accomplished musicians and ensembles in Australia including James Morrison, John Hoffman, Melissa Western, Peter Combe, Kristin Berardi, Elly Hoyt, The View from Madeleine’s Couch and the Queensland Pops Orchestra. He has also featured on numerous productions including the annual choir extravaganza Brisbane Sings! (2013-2018), Swing On This (Gold Coast, Toowoomba), the Sierra Boggess debut National tour (Brisbane), the QLD Premieres of Next to Normal (2013) and Spring Awakening (2011) at QPAC with Oscar Theatre Company, and GREASE: The Arena Experience (2017-18) as well as regular performances locally and nationally with his corporate drumming group SoundStruck.
Outside of drumming, Lachlan has a passion for the beautiful steel sound sculpture known as the ‘Handpan’, and has begun developing his own sound as a solo artist in recent years. Lachlan has presented his original music at the Tablelands Folk Festival, Palm Creek Folk Festival, Music by the Sea Festival, PanOz Festival, Brisbane City Hall, the Stairwell Project at the Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital, and in 2018 launched his first studio album No Enemy Within.
During his studies at the Queensland Conservatorium, Lachlan was selected as one of six national finalists in the James Morrison Scholarship (2014), and later graduated in 2015 with the University Medal for Academic Excellence and First Class Honours for his research work relating to tertiary drummers' health and mindset.
Lachlan is part of the teaching faculty at Sheldon College and proudly joined the Just Percussion teaching faculty in 2014.
