Matthiessen Nisch Quan on SoundBetter

Professional touring and studio drummer based out of Los Angeles! I'm conservatory trained and I have years of experience both on the road and in the studio. I've done arena tours as well as National Television spots, and I have top notch recording gear as well as a excellent neutral sounding recording space. Let's work together!

I am a recent graduate of Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, with a performance degree in jazz studies. Since attending Capital, I have been steadily gigging and have done many recording sessions in several genres, with a focus on pop, funk and jazz. At Capital I was the college preparatory instructor for drum set, and studied with percussion department chair Bob Breithaupt. While drum set is currently my professional focus, I am well versed in all percussion instruments including malleted instruments and hand drums, as well as reading and arranging. I have done recording sessions for a variety of artists all around the United States.

I am currently the touring and recording drummer for Grammy Award Winning artist Daya, Sony Recording Artist Spencer Sutherland and The Voice Finalist Chris Jamison. I made my National Television Debut on The Today Show with Spencer Sutherland in 2017. I have also worked with pop singers Wesley Stromberg, Savannah Outen and Jenny March.

I can easily provide an artist/songwriter/etc... with very professional and unique sounding live drum or percussion tracks. I am well versed in Logic, Ableton and Pro Tools and have access to an excellent recording space with gear of the same nature. I am most comfortable with Pop, R+B, Soul, Funk or Jazz but I have worked with numerous singer songwriters in the past few years in a studio setting.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Matt has done it again! After trying other drummers out, I came back. Matt has the feel with his drum playing. He is great with communication and instructions. You won't be disappointed.

    Matthiessen is an excellent drummer, with a lot of taste in his choices. It is worth much more than the asking price. Good Job my friend !

    Matthiessen always adds a personal touch to any production he is involved in. He is easily among my fist call list for any project and I can't recommend him enough. Perfect attitude, tasteful playing and a highly qualified producer. Just book him before the rates go up!
