    Harrison Linton is not only a prudent professional when it comes to his work ethic and his dedication to the craft of music but also within the realm of respect towards his peers and the careful consideration he displays towards the drum tracks he writes. His commitment to developing the best drums possible for a track is unmatched in both creativity and diligence. After working with him over various projects I can say with full certainty that anyone considering the idea of collaboration with this young man will not be disappointed.

    Very professional and never let me down on a single song. He works with you until the drums are just how you envisioned them. I’ve worked with him on nearly every song I’ve written.

Interview with Harrison Linton

  1. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  2. A: The biggest piece of advice is being able to explain your vision of your song(s). I want to help YOUR dreams become realities so the more information I have about how you want the song to feel, the better. Providing me with examples of other artist's songs or just a general feeling you'd like to have on the track helps me determine what to put into the track. Also it is VERY important to make sure you provide me with the bpm of the track(s) so I'm able to record drums to them properly.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: I love the fact that writing drums can be so versatile. Small hits on a cymbal or loud crashes can define a moment. Dynamics and power can help dictate the scene that the listener is experiencing. Most importantly, being able to tell a story through music and helping tell someone's stories by providing drums for them is always rewarding.

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. A: As the drummer it is not only my job to provide a beat to support the song, but also to lift it up. Provide the listener with different emotions and feelings through the song, whether that is creating an 'impact' moment or helping the other instruments and/or vocals shine.

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: Kick, Snare, Hi Hat, Laptop, Room Mic.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: I first like to listen to the song I will be writing for to get the general feel and flow of what the artist is going for (if they haven't told me directly already). Then I'll go over the track a few times while air drumming and start writing what I feel fits with the song. Once I have a general understanding of what I think is a good fit I play through the song a few times to fine tune patterns and transitions. After that, it's time to record the drums, make sure everything sounds good in post, and prepare the drum tracks to be sent to the client.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: Matt Halpern (plays for Periphery), Luke Holland (Youtube drummer and plays for Jason Richardson), and Cobus Potgieter (Youtube drummer and also plays for Busted) are huge influences for me as a drummer. Their different styles and takes on the songs they play really have helped shape how I write.

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: I typically record live drum tracks for all different genres of music. I record using 8 mics recording on 8 separate tracks. I then either send raw or mixed drum tracks depending on what the client is asking for, and will revise the piece once if needed.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: That I'm just a "drummer for hire". I work very hard to make sure that your song has the right beat, right patterns, and the feel your song needs to bring it up to the next level.

  17. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  18. A: My career path has always been and still is to be involved in creating music. Whether that be my own projects, or helping others bring their ideas to life. I have been drumming for roughly 8 years.

  19. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  20. A: I work on all different genres of music. From Pop to Metal, Rap to Country and everything in between. Primarily I work in "Rock" as a general genre, but have written drums for just about every genre out there.
