Hi All! Tony Morra here, Currently living in Nashville Tennesee by way of NYC and Los Angeles! I have extensive experience in playing and recording drums. What I offer is absolute top notch gear, talent and experience in the area of drumming. Ive been at it since I was a young lad coming from a large family of musicians back in NYC! Having toured the world on stage and in many different recording studios, I bring a vast knowledge of recording and playing drums on your projects! I am a SONG ORIENTED player. I want what you want the best performance to enhance and bring your songs to the highest level achievable! Having been in studios with world class producers and having the opportunity to produce music, I have gained great knowledge (and am always learning) what best suits the song. Be it a Pop song. Country Song, Smooth Jazz, R&B, or Prog Rock song. I've been in many of these musical situations. Also with playing drums I am also a drum programmer (Beats Guy), as well as being versed in all hand percussion. My room consists of very High End gear! In the age we are in where recordings can be made with varying degrees of gear, I believe that the best result comes form having the best gear possible! I work in Pro Tools Ultimate. The gear you find in the top recording studios all over can and will be found in my room. Look forward to tracking with and for you!!!

    Tony Morra is simply an incredible musician! My go to drummer and a force of nature- I'm always amazed by his performances, engineering, feel, strength, etc.( And I am quite picky!!!) A couple more sessions tracked this spring and I couldn't be happier with the results!

    This is my third journey with Tony and I am so appreciative of what he has done again! He has a super high musical IQ and a grounded sense of how to make the energy of a song develop while giving space to the lead. He really puts heart, thought, and instinct into all his work. I only work with the best. Thats’s why I keep coming back. Thanks Tony

    Tony was a joy to work with. An excellent communicator and a professional throughout the entire process. Tony delivered three takes - each one was excellent. Tony created drum parts that absolutely fit the vibe of tune and hit the pockets just right!

    Tony is an old pro and there's reason why his services are in very high demand. If you have the chance to work with the man, do not pass it up!

    Have worked with Tony many times over the past year or so. He has a fantastic instinct for just what a song needs, and his alternative takes really give a producer options in the early stages of building an arrangement. He's the bedrock of your sound!

    It was a true pleasure to work with Tony again! He went out of his way to accommodate and delivered a soulful, creative, and Inspiring performance. The grooves sat right in the pocket and were easy to work with in production as usual. Such a pro!
    Thank you!

    if you are looking for a wonderful drummer Tony is your guy! He did a great job on a country song I am working on. I was hoping for a base hit but instead Tony gave me a home run, he is an all star player and I would highly recommend him for any of your projects. Thank you again Tony.
