Pro Session Drummer Tarik Ghiradella has become highly sought after in the recording studio. His Solid feel and flexible style make him a fun and easy drummer to work with. Tarik is precise, energetic and versatile.

His talent, ability, musicality and genuine enthusiasm for life and music has made making records a true pleasure.- James Lugo

I have recorded drums for Spencer Jones (Americas Got Talent Finalist), grammy nominated Nicki Kris, James Lugo, Discovery Channel, American Heroes Channel, Brian Willoughby, Marc Gatsby, and Mercedes Gourneau and many more. I am so at home in the studio. I love collaborating and creating drum parts for songs.

First we will discuss the song and the style you want and details like the song structure, BPM and the sample rates for the recording. You can send audio files via e-mail, drop box or wetransfer. I will make sure that the drum parts sound killer.

I have been producing music at the highest level in Los Angeles for 20 years and have recently relocated to Raleigh where in my search for an in-house session drummer landed me a chance meeting with Tarik Ghiradella. He has been the only drummer I have used since moving to NC, his talent, ability, musicality and genuine enthusiasm for life and music has made making records a true pleasure. Tarik is the man and a bad ass drummer!
