Are you a singer-songwriter, band or producer looking for professional sounding drum tracks? Look no further! I have played drums on over 60+ albums in my career. Some of those include Enrique Iglesias, Smash Mouth, and many other major signed artists. I also won the award for "Most Outstanding Drummer" at Musicians Institute in 2010 where I studied. Anything you throw at me, I promise I will live up to your hopes!

My recording studio consists of an Apogee Symphony I/O as my front end (one of the best converters on the market!) and Focal Twin B6 monitors for listening. For preamps I have a Seventh Circle Audio unit with 2 Neve 1272's, 2 API 512's, 2 Jon Hardy J99's with the upgraded Opamp (Sound Incredible!). I also have a 4 channel Universal Audio 710-d and one extra API 512c in my API Lunchbox. For mics, I'm using a matched pair of AKG 414 B-ULS's, 3 CAD M179's, 2 SM 57's, AKG D12, Electrodyne RE20, Rode NT1000, Telefunken M90 ( killer on snare!). Not to mention, a TON of plugins!

I can accept full Pro Tools and Logic sessions. Or, you can bounce a stereo mix, send it my way, then ill send you the raw drum tracks ready for import into your DAW. My turnaround time is VERY quick! Within 4-5 days of me receiving your track, you will have the tracks digitally sent to you through my Google Drive account.

    Couldn't have been more happy with Brandon's work. Firstly he was very responsive in his communication around my project, and very professional all around. I found him to be understanding and easy to work with.

    The drum tracks he delivered came back sounding great, and exactly as I had requested. I highly recommend Brandon and his work.

    I've been writing, recording, and performing with Brandon for over a decade on multiple albums and on main stages around the country with artists including Velvet Revolver and Paul Oakenfold. On top of being a passionate easy to work with fellow musician he is a technical mastermind nailing parts and blowing minds along the way!

    Brandon "the beast" Davis is well... the name should say it all. He's a beast but also a chameleon, matching the vibes you bring without coming on too strong or too weak with the beats but just where you need him and as a force to reckoned with. His studio is the most comfortable space I've worked in and am now finishing my EP, couldn't be happier!

    I've had Brandon play on three of my songs to date, including my most recent, recorded and mixed at a legendary studio on Long Island. When we received Brandon's tracks, I was delighted, and the engineer was impressed with the talent and audio quality. After hiring Brandon, I'm reluctant to ever use machines or loops again!

    I wanted to surprise my wife with a song for our first wedding dance and Brandon made that surprise a success! I recorded single vocal and acoustic guitar tracks, sent the files to him and asked him to produce it with a full band. What he returned was an AMAZING track! If you're a singer songwriter and need full band tracking, have Brandon produce.

    Brandon is fantastic. My last two records sound great because his drumming anchors these recordings. Great, easy to work with and super cool dude. He's bringing it!!!

    I have worked with Brandon on many projects over the last 12 years. He is a seasoned session player as well as a great engineer and producer. He can cover many styles of music and is always fun to have in the studio. I would recommend him highly and I will continue to use him on my projects as long as he is willing.... Michael Everett

    Brandon is the man you want to hire for studio work! I've worked with him countless times and he delivers! The best drummer I've ever worked with. If you want your song to have a solid foundation you need a great drummer. Hire Brandon and you will not regret it :) He's the best! A++
