Neal Daniels on SoundBetter

Pro Gear, Pro Attitude.

Hi everyone!

My name is Neal Daniels and I'm a Los Angeles based musician with 20+ years of live touring and session experience.

I currently play with Liz Phair, LP, and Booker T (& The MG's).
Other credits include, Dua Lipa, Rachel Platten, Post Malone, Bea Miller, Daya, Léon, Darren Criss, Camila Cabello, and Christina Grimmie.

I record drums out of my home studio in Los Angeles, CA.
The room is professionally sound treated and has high 12’ slanted ceilings.

If you hire me, you can expect to receive professionally recorded drums tracks, using top-of-the-line mics and interfaces, all while working within your budget. I take pride in having the best sounding drums, no matter what musical situation is presented.

I’m currently endorsed by Gretsch Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, Gibraltar Hardware, Remo Drumheads, Vic Firth Sticks, Roland Electronics, Porter and Davies, Big Fat Snare Drum, SE Electronics and Soyuz Microphones.

Please feel free to send me a message on SoundBetter.
I’d love to hear more about your project and I’d be honored to play on your songs!

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

Endorse Neal Daniels
  1. Review by Mike B.

    As I expected , Neal delivered a strong performance on the two songs . He is both a powerful kit hitter and a fluent
    percussionist . He always listened to my comments and was willing to make any small changes I suggested . I'm
    hoping to do more work with Neal going forward .

    Neal is truly one of the best drummers in the business. I’ve been working with and hiring him for years and there’s a reason he’s my go to guy. Rock, pop, funk, blues, jazz, whatever, he can lay it down. Hire this guy!

  3. Review by Richard Emery

    Neal provided a top-notch sound and performance and would highly recommend it. He was very easy to communicate with and can't wait to work with him in the future!
