Hey there... I have heard a lot of people say that finding a good, reliable and punctual drummer is hard. My name is Georgios, a Musician's Institute graduate and professional session drummer with 20+ years of drumming experience and I am here to change that.
Although I mainly play rock and metal music, I have played drums for artists ranging from Country to Pop to Industrial Metal. I have performed in numerous shows throughout Greece and Los Angeles in highly regarded music venues like "Whisky a Go Go" and "The Viper Room" in L.A. and one of the most popular live-music venues in Greece, "Gagarin 205", as well as at the National Opera of Greece as a percussionist, at the age of 21.

1 - I will need an .mp3 or .wav of your song with instructions (if any). Recording to a metronome is preferred but not required. The structure of the song must be finished before sending it to me.
2 - Once I hear the song, I will get back to you with the cost and time needed.
3 - If we come to an agreement, I will record and email you a take of your song in .mp3 or midi format (up to you).
4 - Should we need to revise, 3 revisions are included.
P.S.: I currently only record on the E-Drums using Cubase Pro 11 and Addictive Drums 2 (until my home studio is finished).
If you like what you hear... I look forward to working with you.
Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

I know Georgios since 2015 when my band was looking for a drummer and shorty after that we recorded a single called Fall Prey and its music vid. Great musicianship, pro attitude, always friendly, open minded. He will always do the right choices to the song. I can't recommend him enough. You must hire this versatile drummer and you'll not be disappointed!
I had the pleasure and luck of finding and working with Georgios even before he created his Soundbetter. He worked on one of my acoustic tracks that needed drums and some light percussion (shakers and tambourine) and he did a phenomenal job. He did not overpower the song and added the right amount of “spice” to it. Cannot recommend enough.
An all-around exceptional rock & metal drummer!
we have so far worked in 2 productions together and he will be my go-to drummer for more.
Technically apt, with a great feel for the music and deeply creative.
Moreover a great team player that performs 100% for the music, always true to his mission of delivering drums that elevate the song.
From styles to phrasing to consistency, if you have the opportunity to hire him for your project, do so..! You will not look back.
