David Lowe on SoundBetter

I’ll provide you with the exact groove & feel your song needs!

I've been playing for over 40 years. I'm well versed in all styles and specialize in Funk/Hip-Hop/ and Pop. Groove is the most important thing for any song. My goal is to always play what the song needs. I've played in numerous show bands, wedding bands, toured and have taught for many years. I'm a confident, self-taught drummer who eventually went on to earn his Bachelor's of Music from Toronto's Humber College. I combine my natural musical abilities with my formal training to record exactly the type of groove and feel you need.
