Guaranteed work--Until the tracks are right for your tunes.

While still doing a fair amount of road work, I'm concentrating more on recording and session work these days.

I offer high quality LIVE drum tracks from my communication lines to yours.

You send your demo with a click track (MP3 or WAV) in a high quality file (44kHz to 96kHz) and you get back up to 16 tracks of drums/percussion to plug in to your project.

Up to 16 tracks of acoustic drums, percussion, loops, or electronic percussion...Rock, Pop, Country, Americana. If you have a SONG...I have parts for it to bring it ALIVE!!!
Skype/FaceTime consultation available

Hope to hear from you and put a groove to your tunes....No matter where you are!!

    Lee Kelley is the guy for live drums. Excellent takes. Excellent sounding drums. He feels the song, lives it, then translates that in the way he plays the drums.

    Lee was on board right from the first time we spoke as if he knew what I was looking for. I worked with Lee on 2 projects and we managed to complete the project in the first take. Lee is THE MAN if you are after great, driving drums! Will use him for all my future projects! 10/10

    Lee did exactly as I ask him to and added some outstanding percussion tracks to my song. Easy to work with. Highly recommend!

    Lee was terrific to work with. He is a consummate professional and a master behind his kit. Lee took the time to really understand my song and as a songwriter that means a lot. Lee is like a polyglot except with drum technique; he is fluent in every style. Thanks Lee!
