Hi, My name is Jason Meekins and I am a session drummer from Austin, Texas. I've been playing drums for over 20 year and I have been recording drums from my home studio for the past 5 years. I use Logic Pro X and I have excellent mics and mic pre amps. I play Paiste cymbals and Pearl drums! I'd love the opportunity to drum on your song!
All I need from you is an mp3 of your song with any instructions you have on drums. It would be best if your song is recorded to a metronome. If it isn't I can play right along with you and still hold a very steady and tasty groove. My rate is budget friendly and I usually deliver in 24-48hours.
I will send you a stereo mix wav file of my drums for your song, or I can send you each individual mic chanel (13 total) for you or your engineer to mix in your studio environment.
I look forward to working with you!
Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

Great performance and great sounding stems. Jason is a great drummer and has pro setup to capture it. 5 stars!
It's always a pleasure working with Jason. Super nice, professional, quick turn around and great tracks!
Jason is able to help us to search the best way to arrange our music.
For the new track we hadn't idea, except the basic rhythm of the song.
He played what he thought.
We're enthusiastic for the result and he confirm our idea he's the best drummer we can meet to reach our sound. He's really patient and very professional in communicate with us and in spite of the very big distance between us is as to have him in the band.
Jason is great to work with! Quick turnaround and perfect on the first pass! Thank you Jason!
Stellar drumming, stellar sound! And on top of that, an overall great guy. This is the second time my band has worked with Jason, and certainly not the last. I couldn't be happier.
Jason is a true professional!!! Love working with him. And will def continue to do so. Quick turn around, sounds great makes post easy!!!!! Strongly recommend!!!! Great guy all together.
He got back with same day and provided me with 2 sets of great stems and even put up with some errors on my part
Jason is an excellent drummer, with outstanding sound quality in his recordings. He's a top pro and it showed once again on our second project together. He interprets well the style and beat that works with my songs. I like his attention to detail and swift delivery time.
My experience with Jason on the first two songs of my album, can best be described as "Stellar". His focus laser-beams on the client's satisfaction and he always delivers in a timely manner. I look forward to working with him on the remaining songs.
Great drum sound and fast turn around! Love It!
This is about the 15th time I have hired Jason which should tell you how much I think of his work.

I enjoyed working with Jason. He has great creativity and instincts. Thanks for another great drum track
Simply the best drummer I have ever worked with.
Fantastic playing, speedy delivery and great value. Hope to work with Jason again soon!
Jason delivered a one and done track on the first take. He kept the beat simple and tight building energy along with the composition, as I requested, while implementing his style of play. He is a pro and has my recommendation.
Jason is an absolutely incredible drummer with very good sound quality on his drums.
and plays like a god.
Looking forward to working with Jason again very soon.
Jason is such a great player, wonderful to work with, super versatile, he’s recorded a couple of rock songs for me but then also a soul style track.
Looking forward to working with Jason again very soon.
Fantastic encapsulation of my track's energy into excellent rhythmic arrangements. Awesome collaborator as always
