ABOUT

Studio session drummer with own studio.

I have 23 years experience playing rock, pop, country, and blues.
I have a day job, and I am already committed to a band for my normal gig, so I am not looking to join another project. I am, however, available for studio work. I have a day job that pays the bills and a family, so my time is only so flexible, but I am available most nights and weekends. I am also available as a sit in drummer for the occasional gig if I am given at least a week's notice, preferably 2 to learn the set.

I also run a home studio, and can record small bands.

If you are interested in employing my services give me a call or shoot me an email.
Phone: 803-317-0404 (Between 8am and 10pm)

SPECIAL:
Since my portfolio is a bit thin at the moment, I am offering my studio drumming services for FREE!* I will even record/mix any group that employs me for session drumming for FREE!* (up to 3 songs)

*I get to use the recorded tracks in my portfolio (displayed on my profile, website, etc.)
