Sonamor Music on SoundBetter

I have had the privilege to work with some truly wonderful musicians in my career. Whether you need a strong groove or sensitive textural tapestry, I have years of experience to give your song the energy it needs to shine. Drum set or hand percussion, I can get it done.

I groove in many styles: jazz, funk, soul, rock, mid-east, on traps,
or hand percussion. My recording setup uses Nuendo and Universal Audio Preamps.
