Graham Doby on SoundBetter

"Tremendously agile" drummer Graham Doby has shared the stage with artists including George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Trombone Shorty, and Antibalas. He has served as the house band drummer for The Impressions. In addition to live and session drumming, Graham offers audio recording/mixing and film editing services from his Brooklyn studio.

Graham's drumming features poly-rhythmic jazz fluidity grounded in funk and rock four-on-the-floor groove sensibility. He brings his signature style to any genre while realizing artistic vision and keeping the listener dancing.

Graham can offer the unique combination of expert, musical drumming in any genre with the full suite of recording, mixing, and editing skills.  This allows for you to maximize your budget and receive ready-to-use content quickly.  

Graham has engineered and mixed projects from full orchestras to electronic productions to small acoustic trios.
His approach to engineering and mixing is clean and rooted in old school techniques for a warm, round, and authentic sound. Sessions with Graham are laid back but highly efficient to maximize your time and budget.  Having recently engineered guitarist Oz Noy in his Brooklyn studio, Graham is just as welcoming and gregarious with renowned musicians as he is with amateur players.  

Graham also specializes in remote film editing for musical content, including choir, theater, original music, and band videos.  Musical video content requires an editor with a musical ear; Graham is the ideal choice for content that needs to both look and sound its best.
