Hello! My name is Kip and I am a session drummer, producer and I want to bring your songs to life!

I will record drum tracks from my home studio in Nashville for your song. What I will need from you: An mp3 or wav of your song, the tempo it was recorded at (if it was recorded at a tempo, and any instruction you have for me based on what kind of sounds/type of playing you want. I have a very quick turnaround time of usually 24 hours or less! I currently play drums live and in the studio for Country Music Artist Devin Dawson. His first single "All On Me" went Double Platinum and I recorded the drums for it. I have appeared on The Today Show, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, Ellen and more! I also have played on many songs in studios and from my home studio.

  1. Review by Josh Florez

    Kip is fast and extremely professional! He's sends back great sound recordings and is very friendly with revisions. Highly recommend!

  2. Review by Moore H.

    Could not have had a better experience with Kip. His communication was excellent, he produced a perfect drum part, and the recording quality was excellent. Definitely going to hire again for the next country project that comes my way.

  3. Review by Stephen Ellrod

    Kip is a super dope producer out in Nashville! I worked on a song with him called "Highschool" with him and I LOVE how it came out. He's super nice and easy to work with and I would ABSOLUTELY do it again.
