Sterling Laws on SoundBetter

Multi-platinum drummer with decades of experience, available to record live drums on your music.

Hello! I'm Sterling Laws, a drummer and producer. Based in Los Angeles, proudly from Anacortes, Washington. I grew up on punk and indie heroes. My mom played drums, I followed suit, and have since had the good fortune of touring and recording around the globe. Artists I have worked with include Olivia Rodrigo, Kim Gordon, Liz Phair, The War On Drugs, Conan Gray, , Chappell Roan, Lo Moon, Linda Perry, Natasha Bedingfield, Matt Berninger, LP, Jade Bird, and many more.

I record drums, percussion, loops, drum machines, and synths from my studio. I have many variations of vintage drums, cymbals, microphones and recording gear, allowing me to tailor each recording to the perfect sound for your song. From big pop drums to tight indie jams, heavy rock to americana ballads, let's work together to realize your vision and elevate your music.

  1. Review by Cody Z.

    The best I could choose for this! Understood the vibe we were going for and gave us a complimentary performance with multiple options to choose from. Will definitely be the first I think about when I need drums for a new song. Glad I chose you Sterling!

  2. Review by Greg Whelan

    Wow! These are the best takes I've had for one of my songs. Delighted with the sound quality, the musicianship and the creativity. Super professional delivery with multi tracks, stereo bounces, percussion - more than you'd need!

    Can't wait to work with Sterling again - great experience all-round. Can't recommend working with him enough!

  3. Review by Colin.kutchyera

    Recommend Sterling as a human and drummer. His recordings are very professional and he gives you/your engineer/producer a lot to work with to get exactly what you want. Quick turnaround too.

  4. Review by Thomas Glantz

    If you want a real pro to inject life into your track, who makes you feel seen and your vision understood, Sterling is your drummer. He was incredibly kind and thoughtful during the entire process and I could immediately tell that he took the care and time to analyze my references and to understand the song, and play to it, injecting just enough of his own creatively and personality without compromising the original vision. His performance, tones, sound quality are unmatched. I highly recommend.

    Sterling is hands down the greatest human and drummer to collaborate with. Couldn't be happier with his programming and drumming. Professional, kind and thorough. Thanks Sterling!
