I am a session drummer and percussionist based in Modesto, Ca available for live studio drum tracks. I have recorded on many records with artists such as Toy Called God, Cold Shoulder, The Robin Hood Effect, Stormfall and Off Davona. I have played over 300 live shows and have recorded close to 100 songs for various artist and bands.
First, I would like to discuss the feel and grove you are going for in your song. After you send me the mix of your song, I'll record and send my drums files in the format of your choosing. If any changes are wanted, let me know and I am happy to make them. Once you are happy with my performance, I will send you the individual tracks and a drum mix if necessary.

Great Drummer my second project with Jacob and really enjoyed working with him.
I contacted Jacob for a couple original rock songs that needed human drums. One I had an idea of what I wanted and the other was open to interpretation. This dude has gteat feel, communicated with me and killed on both tracks. I had him mix it as well and it was delivered as anticipated. Top notch player top notch transaction. Highly recommended!
