Drummer for #1 Country Artist, Jordan Davis
I am a traveling/session drummer based out of Nashville, TN. I have played drums for the #1 country artist Jordan Davis for 3 years now. You might know his tunes "Singles You Up," "Take It From Me," and "Slow Dance In A Parking Lot." While playing with Jordan I have been able to play so many cool opportunities, festivals, venues and TV including Good Morning America, The Today Show, and Late Night with Seth Myers.
I do a good deal of traveling with Jordan, but I am usually in town 3-4 days a week working out of my studio in my house. I do provide full kit drum tracks, auxiliary percussion, and drum loops as well. I can do whatever you would like to the drums or I can send them over raw. Whatever you need from me, I can do it.
I use Universal audio interfaces/plugins, Shure, Audix, and AKG microphones. I am also currently endorsed by C&C Custom Drum Company, and Paiste Cymbals.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like to listen to the song a few times and get a feel for it. I want to feel like I know the tune and am inspired by it before I track on it. I don't want to just throw something down, I want it to feel right for the song. I then do a couple of recorded times through the song and take what feels the best for the tune.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Passion, feeling, and a deep pocket.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Feel on the drums. If the song doesn't feel good on drums, it as a whole, won't feel right.

A: Country and Christian
