Luke Middleton on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm Luke and I specialise in rock and pop drumming. Artists I have worked with include Fire Red Empress, who have been featured in Classic Rock, Kerrang and Metal Hammer magazines and played on BBC Radio 1, Planet Rock, Kerrang and Scuzz TV. If you want cool grooves to help your track stand out from the crowd I'm your guy!

I've loved music for longer than I can remember and enjoy playing a wide variety of styles including pop, rock, metal, blues, country, funk, jazz, reggae and Latin to name a few.

I've been fortunate enough to work with some incredible people making amazing music and my recorded performances can be heard on numerous albums, EPs and singles. I also have hundreds of hours of touring experience from prestigious venues like the O2 to outdoor festivals such as Bloodstock, which has an annual attendance of 15,000 people.

From my studio I can remotely deliver high-quality bespoke drum tracks tailor-made to the requirements of any project and I have the means of transportation and mobile accommodation to travel for live performances anywhere in the world.

    This is the second time we have used Luke, and again he was profession, friendly and produced amazing results.

  2. Review by Max S.

    Luke really helped me out when I really needed it! I can be very picky as I have worked on these songs with 2 other drummers and Luke came in and was a perfect fit!

  3. Review by Max S.

    I really enjoyed working with Luke! He is an excellent drummer and easy to work with! I haven't run into anything he can't do yet! Very versatile and that was what I needed! I have done a few songs with him and have 5 more songs that I will be hoping to work with him on for this album!

  4. Review by Max S.

    I have done four songs with Luke and he did an amazing job! Definitely consider him for your project!

    A truly amazing and talented drummer, as well as a nice guy.
    Great communication with a friendly manner.

    Kept us up to day as work progressed and final results were exactly what we wanted.

    Would definately recommend and will be using Luke again.

  9. Review by Jennifer Diehl

    Luke is a very committed and talented drummer able to play many kinds of music styles. He really has an eye (ear) for detail and great ideas. He definitely knows how to mix professionalism and fun! It's a pleasure to work with him and if you need, not a good, but a HIGH LEVEL result, you're on the good page!

  11. Review by Richard

    Brilliant drummer and a top bloke too!
    I was looking to add a real drum sound to my tracks as I both dislike programming and coming up with decent drum grooves, not being a drummer by trade. I sent over the tracks with minimal notes and before I knew it they were returned. Needless to say It was worth every penny. If it's rock/metal drumming your after Luke is your guy. Highly recommended.
