Dylan Vanderson

Multi-Genre Session Drummer

Dylan Vanderson on SoundBetter

Hello! My name is Dylan and I've been playing drums for over 15 years, I've toured the country with my band Antighost and I work as the drum technician and studio manager at Raydon Studio in Keego Harbor, MI. I am a huge fan of all kinds of music, regardless of genre.

All drum tracks recorded at Raydon Studio in our spacious 378 square foot live room.

Through my time as a session drummer I've played on songs ranging from poppy modern country to heavy doom metal, so no genre is off limits! My specialty is heavy hitting, powerful grooves with focus on staying in the pocket and complimenting the song.

Choose your own drum sound! Whether you're looking for tight, punchy shells or a huge open sound, I can mix the drums to fit your specific needs. I also have a wide range of kits, cymbals, and microphones available at my disposal to further customize the sound of your track. Let's work together to build your dream drum sounds!

Price depending on size and scope of project, with discounts for larger projects.

Check out a playlist highlighting some of my favorite releases I've played drums for:

Thanks for your interest in working together and I hope to hear from you soon!
