    I had the great opportunity to work with Rich for an album studio session here in Berlin. It was one of the best drum recording experiences ever. Such a well prepared and easy going TIGHT drummer is very seldom. Can only give my best and warmest recommendation.

    by Simon Hall

    Rich has an uncanny ability to quickly grasp the style of the piece you are trying to create and adapt his playing style accordingly. He laid down great sounding brilliantly played drums wholly in keeping with how the finished track was intended to sound. It's as if he was tuned in to the finished song that had been playing in my head. - Si Hall
