Whether you need rock solid drum parts recorded for your bands' debut EP; a dancing, grooving, slapping beat for a fresh pop single; or a full mixdown of a record that you know deserves the best, I can help take your project to the next level with my diverse range of insights and experiences
My name is James Prinzi, and I'm a drummer based in Los Angeles. Having studied classical percussion, jazz drumset, and a wide range of popular music styles, my versatility has made me a reliable asset to major label pop stars, musical pit orchestras, rock bands, jazz trios, and more. In addition to my drumming credits, I am also a producer, writer, programmer, and mixer
I attended USC’s Thornton School of Music where I studied with Peter Erskine and Ndugu Chancler as a Popular Music Major. While learning from these legendary drummers, I also began teaching drums throughout the Los Angeles area, and am passionate about sharing my love of rhythms and music with my students
Feel free to reach out and get in touch, I'm looking forward to working with you!

Not much I can say here. James simply killed it. Amazing drummer, very professional and reliable. It feels like if I’d have Dave Grohl or John Bonham playing drums for me. I’m super stoked and looking forward to record more with James in the near future.
This was my first time working with James, and I gotta tell you, he totally exceeded all my expectations. The guy is a killer drummer. Very gifted, professional and easy to work with. He delivered great sounding, solid tracks in no time and I couldn't wish for more. Hopefully we're gonna work together a lot in the future. Big thanks!!!
