If you need rock solid, great feeling drums that swing when you need them to, rock hard when you want them to and burst into flames at the right point (or not) give me shout!
I've been obsessed with music for as long as I can remember and was lucky enough to have access to endless cassette tapes from the 70's and 80's.
I taught myself to play with the greats!
My first paid gig was when I was 12 and ever since I've not stopped working.
I toured extensively while signed to Metal Blade records from 2010-2014, where I then decided to go into sessions full time.
Since then I have worked with artists all over the world, recording remotely from my studio. So no matter where you are, I can offer you a top quality product.
I have played and recorded with members of Queen, cruised the Mediterranean with Bon Jovi and shared festival stages with Iron Maiden, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper and Def Leppard.
I specialise in anything under the rock umbrella with a large focus on keeping this solid but with maximum feel. Think Roger Taylor, Cozy Powell and Ian Paice with the influence of todays Prog and Hard Rock thrown in for good measure.
You'll get up to 13 channels, depending on the kit I use for your songs. Everything will come as mix ready WAV files.
All I need is the full demo with any drum ideas, a drumless version and the BPM info - we'll chat about the rest.
