Igor has a great style with drums! He put live drums to my tracks quickly and with great quality. I highly recommend Igor Willcox for your live drummer needs.
Igor did great work. A wonderful performance that really elevated the track! Thanks!
One of the best and most funky drummers out there, quick, talented, and easy to work with! Hire him!
amazing experience like usual ! thanks again igor
Igor is an absolute organized versatile drummer!! He has demonstrated skills in various styles of music. I most certainly enjoy working with him.
I have a really good experience collaborating with Igor on my song.
It went really smooth, the initial recording was already really good, and Igor was very kind to apply a small change as a revision.
I also think that the quality of the recording was good, and having separate microphones for the hi-hat, each of the 4 toms, and 2 snare mics (top+bottom) will be really useful for mixing the song.
I strongly recommend Igor who anyone needs a professional drummer.
Muito obrigado, Igor! :)
