Session/ Recording drummer based in London with a studio in Battersea. Extensive experience in self-recording and performing everything from RnB to Hard rock.
When you hire me we will have a conversation about the track and what you want it to feel like. You can send me some reference songs so I can find just right sound for your song. I work very fast and will always make sure you are happy with the recording before I am done.

I also have an spds-sx and tons of samples and loops which I feel can incorporate into your music if you want a hybrid sound.

    Oliver was great to work with! He sets up his drums in a specific way which is tailored best for your song. We both had similar tastes in music, so this was a breeze. Would hire again!

    Oliver was extremely friendly and a true pleasure to work with throughout the entire duration of the project. Oliver was attentive to detail and did everything requested the first time around to the point where there were no revisions necessary. Would definitely love to work together again!

    I have been playing with Oliver for over 5 years. He is a very creative drummer always in search of what is right for the track. He is very easy to work with, very attentive to any ideas and also extremely creative. A very class drummer who will get the work done efficiently, quickly and with style. Highly recommend !

  15. Review by Anthony Boatright

    I’ve worked with Oli, for about 5 years now. I can honestly say he’s one the best, creative and punctual drummers/musicians I know. He’s a true musical explorer of sound on and off the drums but also always knows what the right part for the song is. A great collaborator and a great friend to have/spend time with. Highly recommend him!

Interview with Oliver Overgaard

  1. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  2. A: It is always amazing when the client has good references and a clear idea of what they want but also being open to creative input from the session musician.

  3. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  4. A: I grew up in Denmark and started playing drums when I was about 11, by 21 I moved to London to pursue a career in music. I have now lived here for 5 years and live performing recording and teaching drums. I have recorded at a bunch of the biggest studios in London, toured Europe, and played at some of the biggest festivals in the UK. Now I spent most of my time recording and playing gigs around London.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: As a session/studio drummer, I work on a lot of completely different genres all the time. I work with a lot of RnB/Pop artists and some Rock/Country artists. For my own music, I mainly create groove psychedelic instrumentals in the same way as Khruangbin.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: I believe I am very good at sitting in the pocket of a song and just adding the perfect amount of spice to keep the rhythm section alive.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: I record drums for songs or albums. I either work from a guide drum track or by reference tracks supplied by the client. I listen to the references and decide which snare and cymbals would suit the sound the best and which kind of microphone setup suits the production best. Then I create three different variations and send the stems to the client and if there are any amendments they would like I re-record a new version specific to their feedback.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: I have a studio set up w

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: I am really inspired by Donald "DJ" Johnson the drummer of Khruangbin both in playing and sound. I think his groove is immaculate and his choice of snares and cymbals and the way he muffles them are magical. I am also a big fan of Nate Smith and his super groovy tight sound and his work as a session drummer on the album Rising Son by Takuya Kuroda.

  15. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  16. A: I record drums for songs or albums. I either create drum parts or work from a guide track or song references supplied by the client.
