I am a highly experienced professional session drummer & studio engineer based in Dudley, UK
I provide commercial quality drum tracks for your song, EP or album.
I own a pro tools professional recording studio in the heart of the West Midlands where I am based which means I am able to track real live drums, as well as send you midi files or wavs created using my high end Roland V Drums, like in the video below. Please see my videos page for live acoustic drum examples.
With me you are able to sit in on your session live as I create your custom drum track or be with me online via skype.
With a choice of 5 acoustic drum kits, along with 5 full cymbal sets and 8 high end snare drums and loads of other percussion, I have sounds ready for all projects. My current weapon of choice is a birch Pearl Masters kit with Pearl Chad Smith Snare & Tama Stuart Copeland snare and Istanbul alchemy cymbals. I also use Pearl, Tama, Istanbul, Zildjian, Sabian & much more - see my equipment page for more details.
I also use a Roland TD15KV v drum kit for creating custom drum tracks, using some custom designed software for triggering exclusive samples, personal to me.
Before settling & setting up my own studio 10 years ago I had worked in studios in all corners of the UK, played live all over the country, toured Europe & featured on many releases as both drummer & studio engineer. I am a working industry pro and take great pride in my work and reputation. I am very easy to work with and think of myself as part of your production team or band for the duration of my participation in your project.
Previous clients have included: The BBC, Ministry Of Sound, The NHS, Dudley MBC, Sandwell MBC and 100's of songwriters, musicians, producers and engineers.
As an experienced studio & live drummer I am able to provide a custom drum track in any style, play by ear or read your dots, play to a click or as sloppy as you like! I'm a massive fan of playing the song rather than the drums if that makes sense. I can also provide a transcription in standard notation form of all parts performed.

Dynamics processing comes from Universal audio 1176, LA2A, LA3A & an SSL master bus compressor.
