Hi, I'm Dave and am a drummer based in London, UK. My focus is always playing the right part for the song and believe my job is to help you sound the best you can!
I have been playing and recording for over 25 years and am now offering custom drum tracks from my home studio.
I have played for numerous bands and singer songwriters and have been fortunate to play all over the UK, Europe and the USA. Over the years I have played all genres of music including Americana, country, folk, pop, rock, swing and musical theatre.

Dave completely nailed the brief on our forthcoming album, a great understanding of exactly what was needed, executed with precision and style. I would not hesitate to recommend him for your next project.

Dave is really easy to work with. When discussing what he's playing he'll offer suggestions but always has a clear understanding of what we're aiming for. The parts he comes up with and his choice of equipment for a particular feel or sound fit quite naturally into the arrangements and mixes, and the quality of the recorded sound of the final tracks is excellent.
