Nashville based session drummer with 10 years of experience playing and recording. I love taking a song and capturing the feel you're looking for. My style ranges from nuanced, creative, and subtle to heavy rock and roll. I've worked with Patrick Sweany, Nicole Atkins, The Watson Twins, and Indianola among others.
I've played drums professionally on a range of projects with many styles. I've performed at iconic venues such as The Ryman Auditorium and festivals like Newport Folk Festival and Austin City Limits Festival. I have experience working on Rock and Americana records as well as Jazz.
I don't just want to play drums on your record, but also help realize your vision for the song and bring in creative elements to make it the best version possible. I have a fully equipped home studio where I can track drum set, percussion, and bass guitar tracks.
I can bring a level of professionalism and make your song sound as great as possible while also catering to your personal sound. I'd love to hear from you. Contact me, and let's make some music together.

Great job! I like his drum- AND bass-playing very much... I´ll call him again! Recommend - thanks a lot, Sam! :-)
Sam did an awesome job added a nice feel to my song defiantly recommend him if anyone looking for live drum / percussion tracks for there songs hopefully I’ll work with him again soon!
Sam went way beyond providing the drum tracks for my recordings, he worked with the ensemble to truly bring out my voice. He's an attentive listener--maybe a skill developed in his jazz days in Boston and New Orleans. He consistently found ways to place his first-rate chops at the service of the song, because, more than a drummer, he's a storyteller, who knows how to use his skill to bring out a story. A true pro--he gets my strongest recommendation.
Sam is a wonderful drummer, i've had the good fortune of being on a few gigs with him here in Nashville. Always professional & extremely tasteful. 10/10 would recommend for any project that needs a musical touch on the drums.
Sam is a great drummer and I'd highly recommend him for your recording projects. He is very handsome too!
