    Tony is always on point! He knows what moments to hit, really listens to the track and helps to accentuate the arrangement, making it sound organic and live - a tough ask when working remotely. Fantastic as ever.

    Have worked with Tony on a lot of songs now and he always delivers, but has outdone even himself on this occasion! This particular song was very complicated, ten minutes long and in a prog rock style with lots of different changes. Tony really rose to the challenge on this, taking a song that was restricted in scope by the programmed drums in the demo and taking us into cinematic widescreen with thundering rhythms, fantastic percussive touches and nuances throughout. Simply fantastic.

    Someone else said that opening up Tony’s drums tracks felt like Christmas morning. YEP! The tracks sound huge and the room sounds incredible. Plenty of great ideas to choose from. Thanks again, Tony!

    Tony always brings something new to your song, his drums are first rate but the percussion is always next level. We have a very retro sound, so Tony's expressive, creative ideas with tasteful drum loops thrown in for good measure are just the ticket.

    2nd time working with Tony. From reading the reviews you have probably gathered he is musically and technically a great drummer. It is worth highlighting that in addition he has a great room/mic set up with multiple kits to deliver the needed drum sound at source, he has worked with some of music’s greatest songwriters so really understands how to place the drums in the song, he supplies very clean, clear stems that mix engineers love, he works quickly and is generally a top dude.

    The sound of a great drummer is not just in getting the right groove, but in all the little subtleties that bring a song alive, and Tony just has such instinct and skill for this. With percussion too, he continues to surprise me with fresh ideas that I didn't even know I wanted, and after hearing, cannot imagine the song without. Thank you once more!

    Waiting for Tony's drums to arrive in your inbox is like Christmas time for a singer/songwriter. I continue to be thrilled with what comes back after just giving a few hints of the kind of sound and arrangement I had in mind. Tony not only delivers what you want, but what you didn't even know you wanted.

    Laying down drums is the foundation of a song for me. This is my third time working with Tony, each of his drum takes are different interpretations brimming with ideas and flourishes to inspire. The percussion layering is creative, well thought-out and together produces a wonderful, full rhythm sound.

    Second time working with Tony and another great experience. He has locked right into the type of sound we're going for and provided three fantastic takes that have brought the song to life and given some awesome signposts for tracking the other instruments. Percussion tracks are also amazing. Thank you!

    Tony is a wonderful drummer. He listens to what the song needs and the details of any request you might throw his way and delivers. This is coupled with efficient communication and very high end studio quality sounding drum takes. Everything you could want.

    I am humbled to have Tony provide the drum tracks for my song, and it was a delight to interact with him... His initial responses were so fast that I thought I was dealing with an automated response system. The turn-around time was amazing, as were the tracks that he provided. If you are reading this you should just stop and reach out to him. I certainly wasn't disappointed that I did.
    Thanks Tony, looking forward to the next song...

    It's hard to communicate just how good Tony is. First of all he will really listen to your song and deliver subtle nuances in his tracks that only a super pro could come up with and that would be impossible with programmed drum tracks. He will work with you until you are happy and the sound in his studio is phenomenal. Hire him - you won't regret it.

    A sensational experience: Tony is an absolute exceptional drummer. Not only technically perfect, he plays exactly on the beat like a Swiss clockwork and yet with body and soul. You get 16 tracks that make every sound engineer’s heart beat faster, and I will definitely have more songs with him. Thank you so much.

    Tony is 100% as advertised- a total pro and a pleasure to work with. I've been so impressed his friendliness reliability and diligence on a personal level. In terms of the sessions: his musical instincts, engineering skills ( tones, session management) and actual drumming capabilities are top notch in my opinion. I feel like I was asking a lot in terms of getting my songs to truly rock- Tony has more then delivered and this has inspired me creatively. I would encourage anyone to get in touch!

    Tony is the nicest and greatest drummer I ever had the pleasure working with. Tony doesn´t play the songs, he feels them and adds soul to them. So every song becomes greater and better in so many ways. Thank you so much for being the drummer on our songs. I´m looking forward to sending you the songs we are currently writing.
