Luke Sumner

Touring and Session Drummer

Luke Sumner on SoundBetter

I have had the great pleasure of working and recording with numerous Grammy and Dove award winning artists, songwriters, and producers. Including playing drums on the Dove award winning Switchfoot single, NATIVE TONGUE.

One of my favorite parts of being a session musician is helping the client's vision for that song come to life. Whether you want your project to have that modern country sound or a chill pop vibe, my goal is to help you turn your ideas to reality.

I have a variety of vintage and model gear including Ludwig, Pearl, Gretsch and Zildjian to make your project sound the best that it can.

Stylistically, I specialize in Country, Americana/Singer-Songwriter, Pop and CCM, as well as many others.
