About

London based Drummer Lasse Corus emerged onto the music scene as part of Austrian four-piece Buntfink supporting major artists such as Thorsteinn Einarsson or Krautschädl as well as touring the country in 2017. Their debut EP ‘Waiting For’ was recorded at legendary Mushroom Studios by David Piribauer (Alice Cooper, Solange). 

In 2018 he joined dark pop formation Hope Will Lead gaining TV and Radio appearance as well as playing major festivals such as ‘Donauinselfest’. Later that year he moved to London to pursue his career as a session drummer. From playing legendary Omeara with Laura Goldthorp (Glastonbury Longlisted 2019) to his work with Cypriot pop artist Rafaèlla he made himself a name as a versatile and groovy studio and live drummer who brings a smile to everything he’s doing. 

Lasse discovered his love for music while creating soundtracks to Buster-Keaton-Movies back in 2010. After gaining experience in numerous ensembles, bands and orchestras he left his home to study Jazz and Popular Music at the Vienna Music Institute and Creative Musicianship at the ICMP London. His work with choirs brought him to headline the Vienna Concert House with the Vienna University Choir in December 2015 as well as performing own material at sold-out shows earlier that year. 

In 2019 Lasse played several London shows with artists such as  Tega Mendes, Heren Wolf, Natalie Lindi or Billy Boguard as well as having over 50 studio sessions in the UK and Austria. In September that year, he released his debut single ‘Changes’ featuring British singer Ella Tobin (Glastonbury Longlisted 2020) before hitting the stage with Alt. Rock phenomenon Delivery Office for some London headline shows in early 2020.

In the following months, Lasse was focussing on recording and releasing music with various artists. Songs, where he played on, have reached over 165k streams to date and gathered worldwide blog features. Throughout the projects, he supports artists with different additional skills including release strategy, production or co-writing.

We’ve been working together over a year now throughout live and studio sessions, for each time we got together he always brought something to the table – always with his bright smile.

Thanks Lasse for being part of Delivery Office.”

Event Coordination

Since 2019 I am coordinating Masterclasses, Showcases and other Student Events for the Institue of Contemporary Music Performance in London. In this time I was leading on Masterclasses and Online Events with guests such as Frank Turner, JC Stewart, Jack Garratt, Divinity Roxx (Beyonce), Ricci Riccardi (Spice Girls) or Grammy Awarded-Producer Steve Lillywhite (U2).

The picture shows Stormzy’s Bassist and Drummer Levi Yarde and Matty Brown at their ICMP Masterclass in January 2020.

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have developed ICMP’s streaming setup and multi-streamed remote events and showcases.

Artist Management / Release Strategy

Since December 2019 I am artist managing Cypriot pop artist Rafaèlla, reaching over 75k Spotify streams within the first twelve months and getting featured on several blogs and hundreds of playlists.


Music Production / Songwriting

My first arrangement and songwriting experience back in Germany let to first performances of my own work with choirs and percussion groups. After writing and releasing a first concept project in 2016, I released my self-produced debut single ‘Changes’ in 2019 featuring vocalist Ella Tobin, saxophonist Nacho Stax and guitarist Noah Henry.

Since then I have worked as a recording engineer and producer for different artists and have recorded sessions at Tileyard Studios.

Drum Tutor/ Music Educator

In 2019 I have finished my teaching degree at the Vienna Music Institute with distinction. My final work was focusing on ergonomic ways of drumming and how to teach them. In order to finish my degree, I observed lessons from first-class tutors such as Gabor Dornyei and Jon Shone (MD One Direction).

I have years of experience as a private teacher and in 2017 I gave my first Drum Workshop at the Music-Art Nienburg about “Rhythm & Independence”. Topics included “Warm Up”, “Effective Practice Techniques” and the “Ta-Ka-Di-Mi”-System.
