Send an email to book me to record LIVE drum tracks for YOUR songs from my Home studio :
ALL ENQUIRIES/RATES INFO : firstname.lastname@example.org
Bringing my love for vintage vibes and a 'less is more' approach to recording, I deliver anything from 4 to 12 stems of classic/vintage inspired sounding drums for your track. Recorded using 4 well placed mics in the classic tradition (and the option of additional close mics to create a '4 mics plus' set up) all with the character & warmth from my collection of new and vintage instruments.
To get started, send me an email from the link above to discuss your needs & ideas. All I need then is your drum-less track as a wav or mp3 with bpm info, guide drums if you have them, a click or any other specific references or notes. I'll return a reference bounce and if you are happy with the take, I'll send you the individual stems/wavs per song. As a guide, I include 2 revisions on any booking but really I can be more flexible depending on your needs - It's all about delivering what you want & finding the right parts for your songs!
Since offering remote sessions I have had the enormous pleasure of playing on a huge variety of recordings for clients as far away as Australia (including a number 1 country album!), Dubai, Finland, USA, South Africa, Italy and with artists all over the UK; playing on Soul, Blues, Pop, Surf, Punk, Country, Funk, Americana, Rock & Experimental projects … love it!
British Drum Co Lounge Series kit: Lovely warm expressive mahogany/birch drums oozing vintage vibes but also packing a contemporary punch when needed! My ‘Go To’ recording set.
