Brandon Garcia on SoundBetter

I have been a professional live/session drummer for 10 years, playing a wide variety of musical styles. Contact me if you need a drummer for your next session or live performance, as well as for the production of your songs or anything related to the drums.

Born in San Diego, California, July 1994. Raised in Tijuana, Baja California, where my interest in music began at an early age.

The majority of my job is reflected mostly in the proyect Jonatan Sanchez as his drummer and musical director since 2016.

I have collaborated in many studio recordings, exploring a diversity of musical genres (Metal, Rock, Pop, Folk, Funk, R&B, Progressive, Latin Beat, Fusion, Regional Mexican Music, etc.

I currently work as a session drummer, engineer and producer at my home studio.

    Brandon has been an awesome friend and drummer from the time we’ve been working together. In the short time we’ve known each other he has proven to be very profesional and on time. He makes the artist feel comfortable and brings more than talent to the table. Thank you for catching on so fast Brandon! 🦋

    Working with Brandon for the last year has been an amazing experience!!! Not only is he a great drummer with amazing musical ingenuity and excellent technique, he is also a very responsible person which makes any project involving him an enjoyable experience. His adaptability to different music genres is not only reflected in his playing style, but also in the diversity of his drum sound.
    All in all a great drummer who is highly recommended!
