R. R. BLUES SPECIALIST! on SoundBetter

17 years of recording experience. Recorded, performed Mixed and Mastered Kevin Selfe's The Long Walk Home 2013 winner of the best National and Northwest Blues Recording of the year. Professional drummer for 37 years including 8 years with The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

I love all types of music and enjoy helping artists realize their vision! Whether you want me to mix your music or have me perform or both, I've been told I'm very patient. I'm not bothered by making changes or experimentation.
I draw from many mixing Gurus such as Fab Dupont, Andrew Scheps and long time friend and mentor Larry Crane, (Tape Op Mag/Jackpot Recording). To me it's all about getting you your music sounding the best it can be.
As for my drumming, I've been nominated by the International Blues foundation a record 20 times and won in 2015 for best blues drummer of the year but again I love all types of music and am very adapt to Pop, Jazz, Rock etc. I also have access to the best musicians in Portland should you want additions to your songs. Guitar, Bass, Organ, Piano, Pedal Steel, Lap Steel, Harmonica, Harp, Horns, Fiddle you name it I've got the players all available on a track by track case.
