With a unique sound, blunt and precise, I use the drums as my mean of expression. Composition gives me freedom, it allows me to be in touch with my dark side and deeply explore my harmonic sensibility. Being versatile, strong, confident and sensible has allowed me to be a solid band leader.
I've been a Session/Touring drummer for 15 years. My experience lead me to specialize in different styles as: rock, pop, funk, jazz, folk and latin.
Reach me out to help you with any kind of drum stuff: preproduction, live tracking, beat programming and remote sessions.
I can record any kind of session in my own home studio with accuracy and high quality. This gives me the chance to join your project no matter where you are.
I'm used to work with international record companies like Sony Music.
I'm endorsed by Aztuk Cymbals, Montano Sticks and Eccentric Systems Snares.

4 ReviewsEndorse Uriel Herrera
Uriel is amazing, his drumming style is creative and stylish and he joined perfectly in the song's mood. Hope it will be the first of many works together!
Tasteful, powerful, and creative, Uriel grooves to the click with aplomb and the tones are just what I was looking for. I can’t imagine better.
Uriel is one of the most musical and well trained drummers I've met. We have some gigs in common, always a pleasure to share the bill with him, he rocks.
Excellent Drummer, had pleasure to work with Uriel in the Natalia Lafourcade, Vanessa Zamora and Mink records at Sonic Rsnch. Very skilled and versatile.
