Vincent Velazco

Session Drummer

Vincent Velazco on SoundBetter

I've been playing drums for over 15 years and have recorded for Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne) Pendragon, Steven Rothery (Marillion).

I'm a UK-based drummer with years of live and studio experience. During my career, I have toured the UK, Europe, South America, North America and Japan and has done session work, collaborated and/or recorded with the following: Gus G (Ozzy Osbourne & Firewind), Pendragon, Raymond Watts PIG/KMFDM, The 69 Eyes, Steven Rothery (Marillion), Gabriel Agudo, Ben Christo (The Sisters of Mercy) and many more. I have also played drums on a Lexus Car Commercial, the BBC and ITV.

With Pendragon, I have recorded 3 albums and a live DVD. I recorded their album “Love Over Fear”, which became Amazon’s Best Selling Album for a week, spent 3 months in the Top 10 Official Progressive Charts and was number 4 in the Best Album Category in the 2020 Prog Reader’s Poll.

In 2021, I started working with world-renowned guitar virtuoso, Gus G, who is best known as the guitarist of Ozzy Osbourne. We recorded the album “Quantum Leap” and it was released in October 2021 via AFM Records. The album has reached #7 in the Official Album Charts in Greece, #4 on iTunes Charts in the US and #26 in the US Hard Music Charts. It also landed the #2 spot in the Best Guitar Albums of 2021 by Guitar World.

I offer remote drum recording services for any genres but I mostly specialise in Rock, Prog and Heavy Metal. Check out my testimonials from different artists. Get in touch and let's chat about your project!
