Why Work Remotely?
Renting a studio, hiring an engineer, and hiring a drummer to play on your music costs a lot of money - and remote recording cuts out a huge chunk of those costs.
In a traditional studio, time is expensive and this can lead to rushing the recording process in order to stay on budget. Because I have a flat rate and you're not paying for studio time, I can experiment with tuning, drum choices and parts to give you a totally unique drum part for your song without the stress of watching the clock.
I’ll work directly with you to make sure we are getting the exact drum sounds and parts you want for your music. We’ll talk beforehand and get an idea of what is influencing your sound, and any recordings you’d like me to refer to in order to get the right tones.
If you need drums recorded quickly, I can have drum tracks sent to you as soon as the same day you've sent me your music.
Once I’ve recorded the first draft, you can give me notes on what you like and if anything needs changed. If so, I’ll send you the revisions for approval and then send you the stems of all the drum files.
It’s that simple!
People ask me what my favourite style of music to play is. My main concern is creating a drum part and a sound that serves the music and the artist's vision for their song. Aside from that, genre doesn't matter to me at all!
When we talk about your vision for your project, we can also discuss your budget. My rate is on a sliding scale and I'll do my best to work within your budget.
