I realize there are many “on-line” session drummers to choose from but we are not all the same (resume at I can record both drum set and percussion tracks for your music in my state of the art tracking studio (CDR Studios) here in NYC and then ftp them back to you within as little as 72 hours. I can do live drumming as well.

To get started all I need is an mp3 reference of your song along with any specific details, examples, or ideas you may have in mind for me to create your custom drum track. I will ad a click to your reference mp3 and record multiple drum tracks along with a percussion track (if desired), as well as a stereo drum mix down for you to reference (you will get the option of a redo if so desired). The recorded files will be compatible with any software program you prefer or currently use.

I will do 3 passes for you as you like. For example I could do:
1st The version you describe
2nd The version from my perspective
3rd And a totally different take on the track (something you may not have thought of).

All tracks are recorded to a click so you can combine all 3 versions if you like. Contact me at: to talk more.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.
