    I have worked with Thomas as a drummer and as a producer and songwriter. We have recently reconnected and created new material. I am
    completely blown away. His productions are gorgeous and well thought out with lots of ear candy! I honestly cant say enough. I feel
    Blessed to have reconnected after many years! Anyone is lucky to get to work with this amazingly talented man! Plus, he’s funny:)

    Thomas and I go back a long way. I've mixed records for him and also been in writing sessions with him. He brings a great vibe and passion to any project he's involved with. His work ethic is as good as it comes and his bedside manner as a producer inspires and brings out fantastic performances from artists and musicians alike.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Thomas Gallmeier for 14 years now. It’s always a wonderful experience being in the studio with Thomas as he’s multi talented and able to song write, record, produce mix and engineer and can even play amazing live drums. I love how he listens and is able to capture what I want to say musically. The process from the start to the end of a song is fun and quick. I look forward to writing new music with Thomas soon!
    You’re in great hands with Thomas!
