Endorse Nate Louis
  1. Review by Michael Hatchwell

    Working on this song with Nate was just an awesome, flexible process. I always end up loving what Louis comes up with. His drum tracks always bring a cohesive and live feeling to my songs. Can't recommend hiring him enough.

  2. Review by Michael Hatchwell

    Nate was able to add a new dimension to my song. His patience with me and persistence towards getting the right drum parts that would inevitably bring a new dimension to my song.
    The sound quality of the recorded tracks are excellent which speeds my mixing process. That’s what I keep working with Nate at the end.

  3. Review by Michael Hatchwell

    Always a pleasure to work with Nate. He’s super flexible and definitely thrive to find what will work best for you and the music. Nate has somehow become my “go to” drummer.

    Solid drummer and well-recorded tracks. Fast, flexible and professional. This was my first experience with an online drummer and he made it easy for me, guiding me through process and offering several choices of takes. Excellent all around.

    Nate has become my go-to drummer for all my songs. No matter what the challenge is, he remains patient and ready to push the limits until full satisfaction. I highly recommend Nate for any live drums recording.
