“Having a real drummer on your music, feeling that feeling of a human-being behind an organic drum kit, is just something that cannot be replicated”
Al Clayton, Film Composer
Pinewood Studios, UK
Experience & approach
I’ve been fortunate enough to work on so many different projects for countless songwriters, bands and producers. I’ve always strived to be as versatile as possible, from the sound of my kit to the way that I play, and most importantly, being a musician – not just a ‘drummer’. My approach has always been to play for the song – not throw as many licks around the kit as possible – unless I’m asked to of course!
Quality over quantity
I’m extremely passionate about recording drum tracks with great groove and feel, and not just churning through as many tracks in one go as I can. I never take on more work than I can manage, sometimes this can lead to slightly longer turnaround times during busy periods, but trying to squeeze in sessions leads to lower quality drum tracks and, while that might be an approach for some drummers out there, my goal is quality above all else.
Studio & gear
There are so many variables to getting a killer drum recording. The room the drums are recorded in and the preamps and converters used to capture them are a vital part of achieving studio-quality drum tracks. I am proud to use Audient preamps and Universal Audio converters – the result of this combination captures the clarity, depth, and full dynamic range of the kit.
