Allow me the honor of helping bring your project to life.

Hi! My name is Christian Riggs, I'm a remote session drummer and songwriter based out of Northern, Virginia.

Ever since I can remember I have had a love for music. Outside of my wife and kids there is nothing that brings me more joy than watching a song come to life. It doesn't matter if its for me or someone else... the feeling is the same. I have been writing songs for and with various artists, playing sessions, shows, conferences, and touring for the better part of the last 15 years.

I have tracked for Country, Pop, Metalcore, Rock, and Worship Teams. I write and record parts to the song, stay out of the way, and deliver a performance the artist and listener are happy with.

Allow me the honor of helping bring your songs to life! Feel free to reach out with any questions or inquiries at I look forward to hearing from you and the opportunity to work with you.

    Does your song suck? Do the drums sound like they were played with strings of yarn? Do you feel like your drum tone is as flat as my 80yr old grandmas butt? Well sir or madam look no fuckin further. This man will solve all of your drum problems and probably do your taxes. Contact Christian Right now and thank me later.

    I've played gigs, worked as a writer, and as a session player with Christian and he is immensely talented, along with being a wonderful person. His drumming is powerful while being super musical. Hire Christian for your next project, you'll be happy you did.
