Rob Heath on SoundBetter

What's more key to getting the feel and sound of your track right than getting a good drum take? For over 20 years, I've worked as a drummer, engineer and producer in the best studios and venues in the world w/ such inspiring and talented artists. I want to bring that experience in supporting and highlighting their artistic visions to your project!

I was brought up with popular Rock and Roll, R&B, Country and Swing music all around me. My dad taught me to play the drums from his stacks of Motown 45s. These days, I’m most at home when I’m behind a kit and the red light is on.

The most important thing to me is to support a songwriter or filmmaker's wildest imagination. I appreciate the importance of getting the feel and sound perfect. I also understand how to, when asked, come up with something unique and fresh. I love re-amping drums and manipulating sounds with guitar pedals, Tascam tape machines and children’s toys. I adore simple beats but also tracking double and triple drum parts (sparse or intricate) to create the appropriate bed of emotion and groove in support of a song.

My primary studio is very well suited to the drums, microphones and gear that I own and know inside and out.

I own a large collection of vintage and modern drums, percussion, oddball string instruments, keyboards and other instruments.

I’ve played on 100s of records and soundtracks and toured all over the world, including playing at Budokan!, on late night TV and at Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble.

And I’m endorsed by Remo Drumheads, Vic Firth Drumsticks and Istanbul Cymbals. I’d love to hear about your upcoming project!

    I hired Rob to remotely record drums for a song.

    I explained what the song sounded like in my head, and with just guitar and vocal tracks and the BPM for him to go by, Rob absolutely captured it. I told him when I needed the drums by, and he had them to me a couple of days before. I had a couple of revisions, which he had to me at the end of the next day, and that was it!

    Great drumming, well-engineered, efficiently delivered... what more could you want?
