I started playing drums aged 10 having been inspired by friend and world-renowned session percussionist Frank Ricotti. It was then I decided music was the career for me!
Since taking my first professional gig at 15, I've worked with the likes of Bebe Rexha, Peter Andre, Will Young, The Wandering Hearts, Shane Filan (Westlife), David Klotz (Music Supervisor Game of Thrones, Iron Man, Stranger Things), Wil Malone (Producer Massive Attack, Depeche Mode, Black Sabbath) and Italian superstar Gianna Nannini on her No.1 Platinum selling album 'Inno'.
With this experience and knowledge gained over the years from recording in some of London's top studios, I have invested a great deal of time (and money!) into sourcing the best gear around so that I can provide studio-quality results from my own remote recording studio.

How it all began
2011 - 2019
WantDrums.com was born out of the frustration of musician friends of mine who were fed up with programming drums or using drum loops in their songs.
Traditionally, in order to have live drums on your songs you would need to find the appropriate studio space (ideally an acoustically treated room), plus all the gear required to record the drums themselves; preamps converters, microphones etc. All of that alone will run you into thousands – and that's before you've even sourced yourself a drummer!
Recognising that budgets are tight for most, in 2011 I decided to set up a unique 'Online Drum and Percussion Recording Service'. Working out of my own studio, musicians, bands and producers send me their tracks via email, I record the live drum tracks at my place and then I email the high-quality drum files back to them. This means there’s no hiring studios, engineers or drummers. It’s quick, easy and most importantly it's affordable!
WantDrums.com is now recognised as one of the leading drum recording services on the internet and clients such as Sky, EMI Records, Channel 4 TV, HBO and many more use me for drum production – be it soundtracks, commercials, albums and more.
Why choose me for your next project?
