Marco Maggiore on SoundBetter

I had the pleasure and honour to play drums in different music genres alongside some great artists such as Sting, Zucchero, Eumir Deodato, Amii Stewart, Michael Manring, Grice and others. I would love to discover new artists to collaborate with; I can record drum tracks on demand in my own recording studio and send you HQ Multitrack or pre-mix.

I started playing drums at the age of 4, I became a professional musician at the age of 14 and moved on to become a drummer, producer and recording studio owner. I currently provide drum recordings around the world...

The tracks you can listen to on this audio preview are taken from "One Thousand Birds", the 3rd studio album by British songwriter/producer Grice and were recorded at Forward Studios in Rome;

    I've known Marco for many years and have had the pleasure of playing with him in both live and studio settings. He is a consummate, multi-faceted musician and a deeply caring and thoughtful human being. He is a joy to work with and will elevate any project with which he is involved.

    I'm s pianist, composer living in Tokyo, Japan and actually..I've never met Marco, but when I visited Milan last year, my friend guitarist Gianluca Ferro recommended me as a recording drummer for one of my songs of my next album.. he's drumming was so musical and has a wide dynamic range. He added some new ideas on drum patterns of his own which made me happy, too. thanks to his amazing drumming, my song got a new musical essence. I really hope a lot of people would enjoy his play♪

    I met Marco on stage several years ago playing in an electric impro jazz project. Recently we worked together for the British Songwriter Grice.
    He's not just a drummer. He is a Big Pulsing Heart. I hope to play music with him again very soon!

    When rating an artist we often forget the human aspect. Besides being a very talented drummer and an extremely reliable professional, Marco is a real pleasure to work with. I wish him all that ge wishes for himself.

    Very good professional! Good Technique, great sound, amazing touch and taste and very recognizable!!! Gives always something to the recordings... and most important thing, he can say no if he feels he's not the right musician for your recording... so it's very difficult to fall in a waste of time with him...
    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MARCO!

    Gran batterista, ho avuto il piacere di suonare con lui in qualche tour. Groove, sound, musicalità. E umanità. Possiede le doti più importanti.

    Marco is unique in the European music scene. He is a drummer with incredible technique and superfine taste, but he is also a complete musician. His skills as a producer and sound engineer complete his talent. He is a serious and collaborative person, work with him is always pleasant and productive.
