You and I are the same. We both wake up in the morning and put our pants on one leg at a time. The only difference is after I put my pants on, I leave the house and produce a slamming drum track for YOU!
My life purpose is to create and facilitate art. I love digging in on a collaborative project or simply laying down all of the tasty ideas you've already conjured up. I am passionate about getting legendary drum tones & grooves for YOU. Whether you're an acoustic singer songwriter or a hard hitting SOB, I can help bring your song up to a professional standard and we're gonna have fun in the process!
I'm not big on quoting a specific rate, as projects can vary so widely. But I'll use the same gear and technique I use with world class artists and will make it work within your budget. I work in a lot of styles and would love to help you achieve your goals!
I can't wait to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above, shoot me a good dad joke, and let's get started!

Nick was absolutely amazing to work with! He did as many takes as I asked for, until I was happy! Apart from having Nick record drums on my music, I have also played live with him. I can say that he is extremely versatile and always has a super positive vibe and attitude. I highly recommend having him play on your music! I will definitely use him for any and all future work! Thanks Nick for knocking it out of the park!
Nick is a pro. Dedicated to the craft and to getting the details nailed. I’ve played with him live and also use his remote recording services for a project I’m working on. The work always gets leveled up when Nick Ineck is on the track.
It's always a pleasure to hear Nick play. He has what seems like a never-ending bag of chops... but more importantly he is a kind human being, is professional and can deliver most anything you dish at him. In addition to these qualities, he keeps with him a good set of drum gear which is ever important when getting tones in a recording studio or in a live band scenario. He made the recording session I had with him go very smoothly. I will not hesitate to reach out to Nick for session drumming duties in the future!!
I’ve been playing with Nick - both in-studio and live - for years, and his professionalism, well-rounded skill set (drums, percussion, vocals, writing, entertainment business expertise - you name it), and all-around good vibes are only just a few of the many reasons why you should choose him for your project. He does not disappoint. Period.
Nick is a fantastic, reliable drummer that I've had the pleasure of working with for a variety of gigs and some recordings. As a professional musician and performer myself (singer/guitarist/pianist) it's important for me work with other people who are solid players, have a vast repertoire, and have a great attitude. Nick is all of these. He brings his energy to the table whether it is a cover gig, he's playing my original music, or he's laying down a drum track in the studio. Highly recommended quality musician and guy.
I have worked with Nick on many songs over the last 5 years, he is my go-to guy for drums for both live and recording. He is professional, quick, and a fantastic energy and personality to work with. His talent has brought many of my songs to life. He is great at nailing a vision and specific style, but also creative in adding his own flavor if you ask him to. I cannot recommend him enough.
Nick is my go-to drummer. I have been working in music for years, and between hiring him for my live shows and hiring him for my studio sessions, he is always a consummate professional. He's a fun, nice guy, his drum takes are fresh and consistent, and he doesn't have an ego. If you want him to change things up from his previous take, he gets adventurous until you can both dial in the exact sound and pattern that you want to hear. He doesn't get stuck in doing the same old things and in the same old patterns. I highly recommend Nick for your next project. He'll make you sound goooooooood.
There's nobody better than Nick Ineck in the game :)
There's no denying his drum and percussion playing talent. But where he goes beyond the average talent is in his ability to listen and absolutely nail what is best for the artist and/or specific song at hand. You won't find a better, more attentive drummer than Nick.
Nick is my favorite drummer in LA. I've just had him record on 5 of my songs. He was quick, professional, and he sounds great. Will definitely continue to work with him!
Had a great time working with Nick! Stays on task and gets the job done quick!
I've had the pleasure of working with Nick on many occasions and it's safe to say, he is one of the best in the business. He is dedicated and professional with the ability to play in many different styles and genres with authenticity. He will exceed your expectations all while having a great time and sharing some laughs along the way! Hire him before somebody else does.
Nick has an amazing ear and a tight pocket. He's steady as a rock but also inventive and unique. I've had such a wonderful experience working with Nick and will continue to hire him for future gigs. If you want a guarantee on your track, hire Nick!
Nick is as pro as they come. He’s a first-rate drummer and he has a terrific personality which makes him even more fun to work with.
He’s come through for me for last minute gigs, and crushed my expectations in the studio.
There’s nothing more valuable than a dependable drummer with s great personality, look and feel.
I would definitely recommend him.
Nick and I have played together hundreds of times, live, in studio, freeform jam. He's always so fun, energetic, and on the beat.
I'm so happy that he's finally set up in his own recording studio to provide his own production and remotely collaborate. The world could use him!
He played drums on my song 'Bones & Feathers' a few years ago. He was flawless, We tracked his drums in one afternoon after he learned the arrangement (very quickly with style). I was so happy with the whole experience. It's my favorite recorded track of my music.
Working with Nick has always been a good experience. He’s not only a skilled and efficient drummer but also has an optimistic attitude and great energy. I highly recommend him for any live event or recording needs.
Nick Ineck is one of the very few percussionists out there that has the ability to not only give your song that element it so desperately needs but he'll go above and beyond to make sure you have multiple takes with endless options. His creative input adds so much to the experience when working with him. He genuinely wants each song he works on to reach it's full potential, and he enjoys taking it there.
