    Cain is the creme of the crop. As a drummer you need someone musical who can musically understand more than just adding the groove and feel of the song, and that is Cain. He understands music on a deeper level than most, and is adept at finding the right part for the right time. Tracking drums is hard, since it is a very involved process, and Cain has a great setup that makes everything clean to work with, with a great and "pure" core sound. Every project he has done for me sounded immaculate.

    Cain's metronomic feel coupled with his explosive spontaneity make him the ultimate foundation for both live shows and recording sessions. His flexibility to be open to suggestions is surpassed by his execution and personal flare he adds. Cain is a massive asset to the Los Angeles music scene for multiple genres as his jazz background shines through. Pete Mills from The Sweet Kill

    So professional and his playing abilities are just insane. Versatile and technically impeccable and yet so tasteful and musical with his choices. His tracks are clean are beautifully recorded and prepped. Recently we were working on a remote project, which is to be released very soon, and Cain was the first one to track - he did it so fast and his professionalism helped the production process. I highly encourage everybody to work with him!

    Cain is a fantastic session drummer, with great feel and musical intuition. Working with him to record some live drums for a trailer music track was a blast. Cain nailed the charts and turned around the recordings very quickly. He immediately understood what was required for the track, and gave us multiple takes with thoughtful variations to ensure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend working with Cain for any of your drumming needs!

    Cain is an absolute pro! Super easy to work with and hands down one of the tightest drummers out there. Hard to find a drummer who's so well versed and able to cop every style with real authenticity. Whether you need fusion chops or a fat, pocket, rock groove, Cain will absolutely get the job done!

    Not only is Cain prepared to tackle whatever challenge you throw his way, but he is extremely sensitive to the sounds you want to achieve. Last year, Cain and I collaborated on some drum-tracking for some music I had written and he nailed both the feeling and sound I had hoped to achieve from the drums. Cain will not be satisfied until he reaches the perfect take, making the comping progress so much easier. I would highly recommend him as your drummer of choice because, no matter the obstacle, he will go above and beyond what you ask of him.

    I met Cain at Berklee College of music where he was one of the most in demand studio drummers. Every other night he was playing in a session or a show and he has never slowed down. I witnessed him as a live, tour drummer in Berlin and most recently he recorded drums on my track remotely. He is reliable, talented, and has tremendous feel.

    I’ve worked with Cain in a few different scenarios from pop to jazz and he is an absolute monster. Amazing drummer, musician, and person. We recently collaborated remotely on a session and I absolutely loved all the ideas he brought to the table. The drum stems he sent me sounded amazing, high quality, great mic technique, and his playing of course is absolutely top notch. I will continue to call him to work on more projects. Whatever the situation is, Cain will absolutely kill it!

    Been working with Cain Daniel since 2017!!!
    He has played drums for me live and killed it.
    Such an amazing drummer, super easy to work with and always makes sure you get what you want.
    Recently, Cain recorded drum tracks for a new song I’m producing. The tracks sounded perfectly clear and he sent the stems right away!
    On top of it all he’s a bro 😎 always cool.
