I want to track drums on your next record.
It’s my favorite thing to do. I love the adventure of unpacking your songwriting, becoming your fan, customizing a sound to fit your concept, and most of all, delivering results that make you pop out of your seat and say, “Yes!” I live for it.
Take a listen to the short list of song samples I’ve provided. Take a spin through my discography. Check out my references. When you’re ready, give me a shout and let’s talk about what you want to achieve. I look forward to working with you.
