    Francesca has been wonderful in at least 20 different songs she has played on for us but this time was amazing. We were running up against a deadline to finish a CD and decided we did not like the drum part that another drummer had done so we called on Francesca at the last minute and she delivered a great drum part in a vert short time frame. She is nothing short of awesome!!!!

    Francesca is quick with her turnaround and so good at giving an accurate drum track for the genre of the song and we have had so many different types of songs she has played on. We love her and will be so happy to be working with her in the future!!!!!

    Francesca strikes again with a spot on drum part for our song. She continues to amaze. Hire this drummer!

    Francesca produced superb drum tracks for two songs by the same artist. The artist felt that she perfectly captured the mood of each song and that she varied the feel seamlessly from one section to another.

    Her groove is rock-solid and her technique includes blazing fills subtly placed to enhance a lyrical or musical element. Mic placement and recording quality were excellent.

    Her turnaround time and customer service were both outstanding and I enthusiastically recommend her.

    I had to produce a new tune for your business podcast channel. Of course I asked Francesca to do the drumming. Again such a nice gentle piece of art! Loved working with. Already thinking about our next project.

    Francpratt was amazing and gave us a drum track to a very difficult and quirky song that had given other drummers great difficulty. Also, we ran into technical difficulties that were no fault of hers that she handled professionally and with grace. I highly recommend her for any drum project!
