Professional drummer based in New York City. Available for high level live or programmed drum tracking and intermediate mixing, mastering, and editing. Currently using Pro Tools 12.6 so I am available for work on cloud collaboration projects as well!
I have a drum tracking studio here in Brooklyn and am capable of remotely tracking live drums or programming drums of just about any genre or concept. I am a drummer with over 15 years of experience who has been making a living performing and recording in the city for the past 4 years. I'm very comfortable with a click, efficient in the studio, and flexible when it comes to creative input from the artist.
Additionally, I am entering the world of Mixing and Mastering and am offering low prices on those two services. I am quite fluent in Pro Tools and am available for comping, editing, and quantizing work as well.

2 ReviewsEndorse Luke Markham
Luke Markham is a consummate professional and incredible musician. I've worked with Luke for the better part of a decade, and his respect, humility, and skill brought to every project is astounding. His work with me and my debut album, "The Graushua Tree," was incredible. His preparedness for the recording and skill he brought was much need on an 8 hour session. He was always looking for ways to push the music creatively but always willing to take feedback. He is and will be my #1 drummer for recommendations and to share gigs with.
Luke is an incredible drummer and arranger. He takes so much pride in his work and makes sure I’m happy with the finished product. He has helped my project in so many ways and has shown me what my vision for my music was before I even knew myself. I would definitely recommend working with Luke- he’s the best in the business and you will not be disappointed!
