Jeff Berlin

Session Drummer

Jeff Berlin on SoundBetter

Textural, creative, dynamic drum tracks that add shape and color to your music. Drum tones and cymbal sounds chosen to enhance the song and tell your story.

I've been playing drums for over 40 years. I've done thousands of live shows in the US and Europe, and played on over 100 albums. After spending a decade in the fertile Boston music scene, my wife and I have been in beautiful central Vermont for the past 13 years.

I believe that minimal miking in a good sounding room on a well-tuned kit that's played with finesse produces the most expressive, personal drum tracks.

I have a large arsenal of drums and cymbals to create a drum sound that's best for the song.
