Professional Drummer/Percussionist/Producer at your service! I am available for hire to play live as well as a session drummer for your next recording. Also I can produce drum tracks in my local homes studio, so send me your instrumentals/track and I will lay down solid grooves to your songs. Most Genre's welcomed, including Indie, Orchestral, Pop, Rock, Jazz, R & B, Funk, Soul, Drum and bass, Progressive, Metal, and Hip-hop.
Price Range: $300 for fully tracked/mixed drums for 4 songs.
What to Expect
High Quality professionally recorded drum tracks at 88.2 Khz/24 bit into Pro Tools 12. I will give mixer/producers the pro-tools session files via dropbox or wesendit as well as the bounced down .wav files of the mixed/produced drum tracks as a stereo file.
Skype sessions are recommended for discussing and deciding project aesthetics/logistics ( feel of the song, the groove, etc.) as a pre-production step.
I grew up playing drums in church, and took privately lessons at 13. From there I played in percussion in junior symphonies in middle school and formed my first band with some friends. Pretty soon I was practicing everyday, writing songs, recording drums in various projects and touring nationally with bands for the annual Van's warped tour in 2002. In 2005 I moved to Nashville, TN from Sarasota Florida, and started jamming with local acts in Nashville while getting more involved with recording.
In 2012 I moved to Arizona and enrolled at The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences. I graduated that November with a degree in Audio Engineering, and moved back to Nashville to start freelancing and recording artists and bands, and mixing live sound.
Today I own and operate a production company called Tap N Tune music in Johnson City TN, where I spend my time recording drum tracks for clients, producing local talent as well as engineering running live sound for music events in the Asheville area.
Additional Booking Notes
Please send me files in either these two formats:
1. orginal Pro-tools session file including the audio files so I can hear the individual elements of the song, and set up my drum tracks for monitoring/recording to a click track.
2. Bounced down stereo .wav files of the song without any drums/percussion in the mix along with the song tempo ( bpm) so I can create a beat map ( click track).
