MB Gordy on SoundBetter

I won a Grammy in 2019 for the New Age Album, "Opium Moon". I have 40+ years experience playing on over 1000 movies, including Frozen 1 and 2, Moana, Black Panther, X-Men, Transformers and Batman. Countless TV episodes and records. I am both a session player and a live musician. I have performed with the LA Phil and many other local orchestras.

I have my own recording studio. I can track remotely or we can work together in person at my studio if you're in the area. I have a large amount of percussion on site. Here is a partial list of my instruments: 2 Drum Sets, Taikos, Surdos, Djembes, Dumbeks, Dhol, Congas, Bongos, Shakers, Concert Toms, Snares, Concert Bass Drum, Marimba, Vibraphone, Bells, Shakers, Tambourines, Woodblocks, etc. For specific inquiries please send me a message (too many instruments to list).

I have a Masters in Percussion Performance from Cal Arts. I have toured with Josh Groban, Game of Thrones Live, Doobie Brothers, Rita Coolidge, Anne Hampton Calloway, and Three Dog Night.

For the purposes of this site, I specialize in tracking drum set and percussion remotely for songs and scores that require live percussion.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
