Tommy "Fingers" Drinkard on SoundBetter

My team & I will lay down quality banjo, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, upright bass, or steel guitar parts on your track for $100 a pop. What sets me apart? I have a producer's ear. I have produced & arranged strings for many well-known artists and feature films including Tim Armstrong, Travis Barker, Mondo Cozmo, Emmet Furla Films, & more.

My name is Tommy Drinkard. My fans call me Tommy Fingers. I am a stringed instruments player. My specialties are electric guitar, lapsteel, and banjo. I also do session singing. I have a network of musicians that can play every instrument you could possibly need!

Artists I have worked for and with directly and indirectly are Tim Armstrong, Bruce Springsteen, Travis Barker, Mike Hererra, Mondo Cozmo, Jonny West, Alex Southey. I have also composed and arranged string parts in the feature film Out Of Death featuring Bruce Willis. I currently play in up and coming bluegrass/folk band Water Tower Band, and have my own band Tommy Drinkard & the Remedy.

My big credits (except for Jonny West) have all been in the last 6 months so the songs are still in production.

In addition to being a session musician I also am a producer with access to studios, as well as a songwriter.

    Tommy is on the money. Give him lyrics and he gives you back a full song. Were pretty lucky to have talent like him and his team available on here. If Tommy isn't famous yet he will be. The best banjo/pedal steel player too. His timing is on the money sonny. nuff said.

    Tommy and his team are awesome! From just my lyrics he produced/mixed/mastered and provided vocals, melody and everything! Nice clean "old school" sound with "REAL instruments", no electronic tempo, etc, Just Banjo, steel guitar, bass, electric guitar, mandolin. It's nice to know that somebody is still keeping it real! Tommy's ear for timing/melody is spot on! History always repeats itself and what was old is new again! Thank God for these guys!!!

    Tommy Fingers is the secret weapon of anyone in the music industry. You should invest in Tommy Fingers early, because his price won't always be as affordable as it is today.

    Tommy Fingers is a multi-talented artist who brings an incredible energy to his performance!!! His musical arrangement for my project was very creative and original. His vocal style and interpretation of my song was extremely perceptive and EXACTLY what I wanted. I highly recommend Mr. Drinkard for his easy going, professional manner as a producer, musician, and vocalist. I look forward to hearing his upcoming projects and collaborations. His diligence and dedication to music go unmatched.
