Howard Alper on SoundBetter

I have been working as a professional session drummer for over twenty five years and would love to bring my groove and expertise to your project! The range of my abilities include Pop to Experimental and everything in between. I have worked with Corey Glover (Living Colour), Electric Powered Soul, Rotten Cheri, Nightcaller, GOCCO and many more.

I work remotely in a modular setting creating session drum tracks and beat programming. My specialization is conventional acoustic and electronic style drum tracks as well as experimental drum programming. I consider myself strong in myriad styles of Pop: Rock, Indie, Funk, Groove, R&B & Electronica. I primarily use Ableton Live 10 and XLN Addictive Drums deliverable at 48/24. My full bio with a list of credits and audio playing examples can be viewed at the following link -

    I've played with Howard for a couple of years now. As a Singer/Percussionist being able to sync with the Drummer is of tantamount importance to me. Howard makes it easy. His drumming is tasteful, fierce, funky, and most of all, the cat just grooves. We cover a lot of styles in the band that we're in, and Howard not only adapts, but excels. Not only that, he's genuinely good people. It's always a pleasure to play with him.
