John Baldwin

Session Drummer and Producer

John Baldwin on SoundBetter

With 16 years of drumming experience and nearly a decade of music production experience, I can provide the sound that you're looking for. I play and produce jazz, rock, funk, metal, and more.

Learning to play music in all different styles and contexts has developed me into a well-rounded, drummer, producer, and engineer. I can be as involved in your music making process as you want, whether you just need someone to lay down a drum track, or you have a song written and want it produced with full instrumentation. I've been on both sides of this process -- I've laid down tracks for other artist's recordings, and I've mixed and mastered songs for other producers. I can be flexible.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
