I want to provide you with the sound you hear in your head. Nailing the tones and parts that will make your song come to life is my main goal, whether it's live drums, percussion, or programmed drums.
Since opening my studio for remote drum recording a year ago, i've played on recordings for artists all over the world. Russia, Chile, Spain, Mexico and all across Canada and the U.S. From singles to full albums and movie soundtracks on Amazon Prime.
The greatest thrill is getting an email back from them after they've heard the tracks that says "This is exactly what I was hearing!"
I have no desire to play flashy or loud if the song doesn't call for it, I only want the artist to be happy.
I specialize in Rock, Pop and R+B, though I'm comfortable in almost any situation.
I'm work with your budget - Lets make some music!

Andrew is always a pleasure to work with. Our sessions are fast and productive, and this was our easiest project to date. I continue to recommend him to anyone in need of the right drums for the right song. Thanks again, Andrew!
Andrew did an amazing job! Nailed the idea and really got the feel of the track. He went above and beyond to get it sounding perfect as well. Thanks again and I am looking forward to working with you again!
Andrew is an excellent drummer and collaborator. He was very fast, professional, and easy to work with; I'd definitely recommend his skills to anyone looking to add drums to their track. I hope to work with him again soon. Thanks, Andrew!
Andrew is an incredibly talented musician, engineer and producer. He goes above and beyond when it comes to realizing my musical vision. He has been flexible and versatile in and out of the studio and is incredibly easy to work with. Not only do I want to continue working with him, he has inspired some of my original music and brought it into musical realms I never thought possible. If you are looking for a studio engineer or musician who can help you on your musical journey, I highly recommend Andrew.
Andrew is a musical beast and a true mensch! As a drummer he is extremely versatile, flexible yet creative with direction, and is one of the most tasteful musicians I know - always playing the part that the music demands. In almost any musical context I would hire Andrew for his astonishing musicality, taste, and easy-going/friendly demeanour.
Andrew was enthusiastic about my material and understood my vision immediately. He is an incredibly versatile musician that can play anything I throw him and I can hear his love for drumming in the recordings we have done together! He’s also a fantastic listener and steers the tunes where they need to go. I recommend Andrew over and over again!

Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Being a part of the creative process with others and making different kinds of music every day.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Fluid and flexible!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I’m focused on making the song and the lyric shine as much as possible. If you’re looking for a drummer to bring their own creative voice to the mix, I love jumping in with ideas. If you’re looking for someone to play the exact perfect part you have in your head, I’m more than happy doing that as well.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: All I need to get started is a scratch take with voice / an instrument or both. If it’s recorded to a click that’s great, if not I can make that work too. From there I’ll add drums to it, and send you back an mp3 to make sure I’m on the right track with sounds and the performance. After revisions and you have the perfect takes, I’ll send you individual drum stems ready to be mixed!
