Peter Young - Session Drummer on SoundBetter

I'm a life long drummer, mix engineer, music producer finding my own way through this crazy music biz working out of Nashville ,Tn since 1991. I provide drum tracks, produce and mix recordings for songwriters , producers , publishing co's and music productions companies in Nashville and from around the globe .

I started Nashville Drum Tracks ( online drum tracks ) in 2003 and have been collaborating on sessions ever since via the net. I bring decades of experience to your sessions and use great studios to work out of.

Send me your mp3 track to listen an check out. For recording I do like to have wav files 24b/44 or 48k , starting at 0 (zero). Its good to have a seperate click track, band mix and vocal if we can. I'll mix it to my liking so I can lock in tight.

On your session day it's always good if you can retrieve a quick mp3 sample around the time I'm cutting the track. For quick reference . Then I can make adjustments and finish up. I also invite you to Skype or FaceTime as an option too...

Once we are all in agreement and Payments to Paypal are complete, I'll send you over the files ,via the net thru We transfer or another uploading service I use.

If you want more instruments than drums on your songs , I can bring in other musicians to round them out..Simple recordings to full blown projects. Pro tools, Nuendo & Melodyne are my go to programs ...I've worked with many different musical styles and languages...Big stars to up & coming talent.

Looking forward to working on your recording !

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
