Hey! My name is Ben Todd and for 10 years I toured the world with Cirque du Soleil as a drummer and bandleader. During this time, I recorded tracks for clients in studios all over the US, as well as establish my home studio back in Australia. I've since been recording and producing live drum and percussion tracks from home, and I love it!
I'm the third generation in a family of drummers, so music is literally in my blood! It's been my absolute passion to record, collaborate and create new music with musicians and producers from all over the world. Already working with artists from Spain, France, the US, Germany and Australia, I can offer expertise and experience in delivering drum and percussion tracks in almost any style and sound aesthetic.
I started playing drums at age 3, and have since followed in the footsteps of my fathers career as a professional freelance drummer. I was working in recording studios by age 8, and by 15 had enough equipment to build my first home studio. Since then, my collection of specifically chosen microphones and drums has grown to a point that I can now be proud to offer a sound for almost any taste. As an endorsee of Pearl Drums, Zildjian Cymbals and LP Percussion, I have all the tools on hand to find the perfect sound and vibe for your track.
Touring the world for the past 10 years with Cirque du Soleil has also given me the chance to work in a variety of recording studios in the US and Australia. I've also had the chance to play for up to 2500 people per night, 7 - 10 shows a week for this entire time.
I am truly lucky to be able to do what I do everyday, and I can't wait to provide you with the perfect drum track for your song!

Ben does a fabulous job. Very easy to work with and always comes up with the goods. Great feel, playing and variety of sounds all of which just makes your song
“ sound better”.
I've had the absolute privilege to have Ben Todd play on two of my albums and the technical proficiency and tastefulness in his drumming across diverse styles and musical genres is just incredible - not to mention he also has an amazing collection of drums and studio equipment to really dial in the sound that you're after. I highly recommend Ben if you're after a top notch drummer who always delivers a high production value recording!
