Adam Nurre

Session Drummer & Composer

Adam Nurre on SoundBetter

I'm a drummer, bassist, composer and arranger based in Austin TX. Contact me for high-quality and musically thoughtful drum tracks, bass tracks, string/horn arrangements, or original compositions for any type of media.

I have been a professional freelance musician for nearly 20 years. While I'm primarily a drummer and percussionist, I also work frequently as a bassist -- averaging over 150 shows a year throughout the US and Europe. My recent recording credits include work with David Ramirez, Rod Melancon, Jeremy Pinnell, and Grammy-winning producer Adrian Quesada.

Over the years I've expanded my skillset to include remote tracking, arranging for horns and strings, creating original compositions for chamber groups and large ensembles, and writing music for film and production libraries.

My goal is to make the very best noises to fit your needs! As a rhythm section player, I always aim to serve the song -- it's all about making informed and intentional choices to ensure that my parts enhance the song as a whole. Fluent across many genres but well-versed in rock, country, and americana.

As a composer and arranger, I want to help translate your vision into a creative and effective final product -- anything from lush string section arrangements for a pop ballad, to a catchy instrumental theme for a podcast, to an intense percussive cue for a film trailer, or anywhere in between. Songwriters: I can create instrumental parts to fit your lyrics!

In all areas of my work, I value clear communication, consistent quality, and prompt delivery. Let me know how I can help you!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
