Thom Mills on SoundBetter

Hi, I am Thom, I am an experienced session drummer and studio owner. I am available to record drums for your music.

I have over 10 years working as a professional touring and recording artist; having toured extensively throughout the world and recording in some top recording studios, I am now operating from my own professional studio, 'RedDrum Recording Studio' offering live remote drum & percussion tracking.

Simply send the file to me with tracking information, I will record my drums in my studio and return the stems to you.

I am currently a full time member of Skinny Lister (Xtra Mile Recordings) and Public Body (Republic of Music). I have also toured and recorded as a drummer with Mechanical Bride (Transgressive Records), Sunless '97 (Abeano), and Foals (Warner Bro) as percussionist.

I have extensive recording experience and worked in studios including Metropolis, Rockfield, Abbey Radio & Maida Vale.

My drum gear list includes C&C custom drum kit, (22", 12", 16") Ludwig Supraphonic LM400 snare drum, Ludwig Copper Phonic snare, C&C custom wood snare, Sabian Artisan range cymbals and a wide range of percussion instruments, including Roto Toms.

I currently have 7 channels of drums and the microphones I use are Audix D6 (kick) & i5 (snare), 2x Sennheiser e904's (rack & floor toms), Beyerdynamic m201 (hi-hats) and 2x stereo overheads going through the Focusrite Saffire Pro 40 using Logic Pro X. I will supply all of these channels as raw stems.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

    Thom nailed it first time, really took the time to understand the track and delivered ahead of time.

  2. Review by Derek Meins

    I can honestly say that Thom is one of the best musicians I've ever worked with. We've collaborated on several recording projects and his input has always been top-notch. His vast knowledge of music, coupled with his tasteful creativity, makes him my go-to guy if I'm looking for drums or percussion to really bring a project together. Also, he's a lovely man... which helps! Highly recommended.

    I’ve worked on multiple sessions with Thom, and each and every time he blows my mind. He’s so easy to work with, a lovely fella and I couldn't recommend enough!

  6. Review by David

    Thom and I have been working together for 15 years now. He is my first port of call for recording or live work on the drums. His unique feel, coupled with an eclectic taste in music means he is capable of turning his abilities to any musical project.

  7. Review by Barny Barnicott

    I have worked with Thom on a couple of projects, the last being the latest Skinny Lister record. Thom is fantastic to work with and always has the heart of the song at the forefront of his approach. He also sounds amazing, I don’t think we had to work on his drum sound at all!!! Couldn’t recommend him more.

  8. Review by Tom Bishop

    I’ve recorded Thom on multiple sessions now and I can honestly say he’s one of the best drummers I’ve had the pleasure to work with! He has an amazing feel and always delivers. I would highly recommend.

  9. Review by Charlie McClean

    Thom is an outstanding and highly innovative drummer whom I have had the pleasure of recording on many occasions. He brings the highest quality performance every time, and is always able to provide a unique perspective or idea to parts that make him a dream for any producer. And as a person his professionalism and character make him a total pleasure to work with every time.

    Thom provided drums for an upcoming single release of mine, he was a joy to work with and his playing really took the track to the next level, I highly recommend!

  11. Review by Sam Brace

    Thom provided recorded drums for a track we’ve been working on over the last week, his performance was bullet proof and the recording quality was frankly incredible. Will be regularly using his services in the future. Highly recommended.
