Luis "El Children" Ledezma on SoundBetter

Session Drummer,Remote Mixing,Producer.

Hi, My name is Luis Ledezma and I am a session drummer from Mexico,city. I've been playing drums for over 20 years and I have been recording drums from my home studio for the past 3 years. I use Protools 12 ,Ableton 10 and I have excellent mics and mic pre amps. I play Meinl cymbals and percussion,Yamaha,Ludwig and Rogers 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.
I will send you a stereo mix wav file of my drums for your song, or I can send you each individual mic chanel (16 total) Depends on the project ,for you or your engineer to mix in your studio environment.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
Meinl cymbals,percussion and Vic Firth endorser.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

Endorse Luis "El Children" Ledezma
  1. Review by Benny L.

    El Children is an incredibly intuitive drummer. He understands the importance of song and sound and contributes what is needed. When recording him or playing live with him, you always hear him searching for emotions, stretching the language of his parts, going places with his choices.He will always work to make your music dance. Excellent time, great sound and lots of fun to work and travel with. Luis is a drummer, beat-maker, songwriter and key team player in my music. One of a kind.

    El Children is simply the best Mexican drummer there is. He is versatile, he has a great technique, good taste and many years of experience playing live and recording sessions.

    “El Children” is a jewel.

    I’ve been fortunate enough to have recorded with him on various projects and there is nothing that he doesn’t make sound better.
    An all around amazing musician, performer and human being. Very precise and professional and has an amazing ability to adapt to any sound or genre.
    Bye far one of may favorite musicians in the world.

    As Tom Petty once said “ Finally, I don’t have to worry about the drums”

    Whether it be live or in the studio, your project is sounding better with “El Children”

    In words of his peers, “the best studio drummer in Latin America, and probably the most versatile in the business with a superb technique”. On top of that he is a very accomplished musician and producer, but moreover he is a great human being to know and to work with, great vibe, taste and sense of humor.

    Luis recorded the drums in a movie I wrote and produce the score and song arrangements for. It's called "¿Qué le dijiste a dios?
    What a pleassure is to work with Luis.
    Great sound, very musical and amazing skills, fully flavored groove.

    Luis is such a nice person and a superb musician that makes your music sound profesional since the first beat.

    I'm looking fordward to a new project so we can make music togheter again!
