    Francesca produced a drum track that was exactly what I wanted for my song. Some changes we made were done willingly and everything was done with very quick turnaround. Great sounds and a pleasure to work with.

  15. Review by Michael Costelloe

    Another great live drum track from Francesca! On this one she demonstrated her versatility in delivering a softer sound for an acoustic / vocal sound that was just right for the song.

    Super easy to work with and perfect grooves in the pocket 10/10

  17. Review by Phil H.

    Francesca did a fantastic job laying down drum tracks for my original song. I gave her a demo, bpm and a very rough chart and she turned it around in 24 hours. She delivered a steady groove with dynamic, tasty fills! I look forward to working with her again.
