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'.
Having spent many years as a session drummer in the UK recording at some of London's top studios (Abbey Road, RAK and more), I've used this first-hand experience and knowledge to offer great sounding, high-quality custom drum tracks from my very own recording studio.
From here I record drums for musicians and producers from around the world and email the drum recordings back to them. Because of the convince of working remotely, I can offer my services at a much lower rate, which means you get a much better deal than if you were to hire a studio and drummer separately in your local area.

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 – not to mention how expensive it was to get 'live' drum tracks on their songs.
It seemed people who wanted drums recorded on their songs would either need to travel to a commercial studio and hire a drummer that way, or try and record a drummer in their own space. That space would ideally need to be an acoustically treated room. Plus, there's also all the gear required to record drums properly; converters, preamps, microphones etc. Either of those two methods would end up costing hundreds – if not thousands.
Having gained so much invaluable knowledge and experience recording at some incredible studios in and around London, in 2011 I decided to set myself up to record drum tracks from my own studio. The idea was simple; I would work out of my studio and offer people around the world one of the first 'Remote Drum Recording Services' online.
With people's budgets dwindling and some studios even closing their doors because of this, remote recording had very quickly started to gain popularity.
Since the creation of WantDrums.com I have had the pleasure of recording drum tracks on countless projects, from self-releasing artists right the way through to large TV productions and soundtracks. I'm also thrilled to be recognised as one of the industry-leading drummers online.
