  1. Review by Adam Tilzer

    I've worked with Brian since 2010 and couldn't recommend him higher. One of my favorite drummers to record and have play on my projects. Whether he's in the studio with me or recording himself and sending me the files, the product is always stellar. Do yourself a favor and get this drummer on your songs now!

  2. Review by Robert L. Smith

    Brian is The Man. If you need the right playing and sounds, look no further. When he's on a project of mine I know I don't have to worry about the drums, because he has it covered. So when you need it to be right the first time, Brian is your drummer. Highly recommended
