Drummer of groove, timing and style. From jazz to pop-punk, I'll sink my teeth into anything and won't stop till its perfect.
Hey there, my name is Bailey and I am a drummer from the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. I have been playing drums for 7 years and began recording at home around 3 years ago. I have since then upgraded my setup to accomodate advancements in my playing and recording ability (see gear list).
I still adopt a minimalist setup and for many, that is an ideal thing which appeals to their piece. I have recorded and produced over 20 songs and tracks for sound tracks and well as stand-alone songs. That being said, I have no intention of ripping anyone off so I want to be there as an option for people who may not be able to afford an extremely expensive service.
I have experience playing in bands all over Victoria and wish to bring my live playing experience to the home studio for your music. I implore that you check out my previous work before making any judgements to my age or ability.
I will NOT take on anything I don't think I can do and I will be straight with you on all fronts from the word go. I am approachable and have a vast array of drumming clips featured on my Instagram for all to view at anytime.
To quote Dave Grohl, "I love being a drummer. Everyone think's you're so dumb but without them, their band would suck."
