Remote Live Drums + Percussion

Shep Martin on SoundBetter

Rock/Pop Punk session drummer with credits that include De'Wayne, Grandson, Hey Violet, Poorstacy, Zolita, and more. Contact me if you want to give your track the added energy of a live drummer!

I've been drumming for 17 years and have tons of experience playing rock, pop, pop punk, and other genres. Some of my biggest influences are Travis Barker, Dave Grohl, Tommy Lee, and Aaron Gillespie. I'm originally from Atlanta, GA and have been a Los Angeles resident for over 6 years. Music is my true passion and I love nothing more than giving songs a new life by adding drums.

Send me a bounce of your song file and I'll send back 3 takes of live, edited drums within 48 hours.
If you'd like I can add percussion (shaker, tambourine) for a low price as well.
