Mikey Best

Remote & Live Session Drummer

Mikey Best on SoundBetter

My playing is dynamic, expressive, and I always play to the song. I work best in creative collaborations in support of emerging songwriters as a light touch, well-seasoned, pocket drummer.

I will collaborate with you to write and record live drum tracks remotely to make your song feel complete. As a session drummer I specialize in supporting singer songwriters in Honky Tonk, Alt-Country, Folk, and Americana soundscapes. I have over 2 decades of experience in live performance and studio recording, can improvise, and always put professionalism first.

I believe the best sounds come from using a minimalist approach to the full drum kit.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Terms Of Service

I want all of my songwriters to feel supported and will provide up to 3 revisions of sessions within the scope of a project. Beyond that I am open to negotiating further.
