I am a drummer percussionist based in the UK.
I started my career training as a classical percussionist and working in orchestras and theatres for a few years in the early 2000s.
My passion for popular music and playing the drums led me to play with bands, solo artists live and in the studio. Through these experiences I got involved with producing for artists and engineering, which naturally led me to set up my own studio where I work with artists and do remote drum recordings, as well as making records.
Years of producing has helped me become a better drummer as I've become more aware of what parts each song might need and it's also enabled me to craft the right sounds and tones - whether it's real drums or programming parts.
I like to keep busy so when I’m not touring I am making records and recording drums.

I have everything to make great drum sounds, I won’t bore you with the details.
HOW IT WORKS
The first step is you send me your song. Any format is welcome :)
It can be very basic or fully formed arrangements.
We discuss directions, influences, references, tones and then I go to work.
Additional percussions and programming is also an option based on direction and what the song needs.
*You can 'attend' the session online. I will set up a video link and a High Definition Audio feed (depending on your internet speed), so you can give input. Some people like that, others just let me get on with it.
When I’m done I will send you a mixdown for approval.
If it's all in good shape I will transfer you a stereo mix of the drums and individual stems as well.
If you would like to hire me for drum recording or if you have any questions regarding my work, please get in touch!
