Hi, and thanks for checking out my profile. I offer remote drumset recording from my studio, Unleashed Drum Studio, or at a local studio of your choice in Los Angeles. I also produce songs via my close relationships with many of LA's best musicians. Please drop me a line to discuss your next song... looking forward to creating great music with you.

Blake is a consummate musician: a session drummer, music producer, bandleader, educator, and author who is dedicated to creating great music. He has performed on 500+ songs in the studio, performs 100+ shows a year, and works with many talented artists, bands, singers, songwriters, and producers including some of today’s biggest stars.

From 2007-2015 Blake co-founded and co-managed a successful team of twelve top session musicians, The Backliners. In 2014 Blake founded a high-end drum recording & teaching facility, Unleashed Drum Studio. In 2016 Blake co-founded and co-manages a high-end collective of 50+ popular session musicians, the LA Session Group.

Blake has helped countless drummers of all abilities improve their musicality through his inspirational private lessons, the four Drumset Method Books he has written, and his original Play-Along Compositions. You can read a recent interview with Blake HERE.
