Hey everyone! I´m Tuomas Rauhala, drummer/composer/session musician. From my recording studio here in the Southern Finland, I record high quality drums for everyone from all over the world. When you hire me as a session drummer you will get pro quality drum tracks tailored directly to your music.

My personal taste is extremely diverse and during my lifetime I´ve had the pleasure of playing large number of different music genres.

My expertise lies in Rock, Fusion, Prog and Metal but I am always excited to hear what you have to offer. I have a strong experience from live and session drumming for different artists and bands. Let me create a good foundation for your songs and productions.
