Touring and recording drummer for 26 years, my credits includes: Jeff Scott Soto, Geoff Tate, Jason Bieler, David Ellefson, Devin Townsend, All Pitrelli, Joel Hoekstra and many more. I can navigate through many styles like rock, hard rock, pop, indie, alternative, pop country, etc.
I'm offering my services as a session drummer, I'm known by my peers and clients for musicality and solid drumming.
Although I'm able to track real drums I recently I added to my services my Roland electric kit, it's a great solution if you need things to get done fast, sounding amazing and most importantly, affordable. I work with the best drum libraries on the market like Slate Drums 5 and Superior Drummer 3. I like to spend time on the track to deliver the best result possible while doing with agility.

Great musician, great to work with! Edu really helped breathe some life into my programmed drums by performing them on his kit and sending over the MIDI and along with sample mixes. Highly recommend!
Edu is great! Easy to work with. Great communication. Great feel. Fast turnaround He played for the song and made it better! I had very specific file requirements and he gave me exactly what I asked for. Will be using again.
I just began to collaborate with drummers. Edu nailed it! Edu has a great touch. Very professional drummer, fast replies and great rhythm patterns and ideas. Edu added a great touch to this song. I recommend him.
A great Job as usual. Edu always has a quick turnaround and knows just what the song needs in each section. A total pro!
Edu is one of the best producers I've had the pleasure to work with. All I gave him to go off of was a basic demo, and he got me the perfect drums for my song within just a day. When the song had a small change later in production, he also got me a revision ASAP. Easy to work with, fast, and most importantly great product. I will definitely look Edu up again next time I need some great drums
Extremely talented musician. Plays drums and sings with equal ease and precision. Truly understands the drummer's role in a band, whether in rock, pop, country, heavy metal...that makes your song sounds even better
One of the best drummers that i have the pleasure to work with. Extremely musical, play for the music, pop/rock solid!
