Awesome Remote Drum Tracking!

Junior Padilla on SoundBetter

JP is one of the most tasteful and soulful drummers you will ever hear. Coming from strong production/composing roots, he instantly plays from within the music and sets a groove so deep in the song the band simply swims in it. Hire him today!

"JP the ability to induce great tones out of his instrument will become evident within the first bar of rhythm creating an atmosphere that is like audible honey. Junior was fortunate enough to have studied under the legendary drum instructor Pat Petrillo at his then Groove Academy. Pat quickly turned him into a gigging drummer playing venues like The Stone Pony with various local bands in NJ. Junior is originally from NYC and now calls Nashville, TN his home where he owns a production studio, and is a freelance live/studio drummer. "

My biggest asset is using my ears and heart to give the music what it's asking for along with guidance from the writer/composers. The service offer is a fully produced drum track recorded in an analog meets digital studio. I've found that this give a unique sound to recordings and gives music a deeper soulful character.
