Nick Ineck on SoundBetter

You and I are the same. We both wake up in the morning and put our pants on one leg at a time. The only difference is after I put my pants on, I leave the house and produce a slamming drum track for YOU!

My life purpose is to create and facilitate art. I love digging in on a collaborative project or simply laying down all of the tasty ideas you've already conjured up. I am passionate about getting legendary drum tones & grooves for YOU. Whether you're an acoustic singer songwriter or a hard hitting SOB, I can help bring your song up to a professional standard and we're gonna have fun in the process!

I'm not big on quoting a specific rate, as projects can vary so widely. But I'll use the same gear and technique I use with world class artists and will make it work within your budget. I work in a lot of styles and would love to help you achieve your goals!

I can't wait to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above, shoot me a good dad joke, and let's get started!

    It was super easy working with Nick, he really tried to dial into what I was looking for on my song. Great communication and had the drum stems turned around in no time. Look forward to working with him again.

    Nick was fast and the tracks sounded great!

  5. Review by Hunter H.

    Nick was absolutely amazing to work with! He did as many takes as I asked for, until I was happy! Apart from having Nick record drums on my music, I have also played live with him. I can say that he is extremely versatile and always has a super positive vibe and attitude. I highly recommend having him play on your music! I will definitely use him for any and all future work! Thanks Nick for knocking it out of the park!

  6. Review by Drew Y.

    Nick nailed it! Within hours he got what I needed done for me. I sent him notes, asked him to follow them and also told him to improv a little with what he was hearing in his head for my track. He did a great mix of both, exactly what I asked for. I highly recommend him for future projects for anyone out there. I will for sure use his services again. Thanks again Nick!

  7. Review by Andrew Marks

    I have been working with Nick for years now with several different projects. His ability to sink into your vibe and give you exactly what you are looking for is unmatched. His drumming is extraordinarily tasteful and has intention and that's what makes the difference. Nick is reliable and cares a lot about your project and that's why I continue to turn to him. Thanks Nick!

    Nick is an incredibly talented drummer, and he really wants to make sure to get the sound right for whatever the vibe is for your music. He definitely goes above and beyond what most musicians would do, and he is so kind. I would highly recommend him for any type of project, as he is very versatile!

    Nick is a pro. Dedicated to the craft and to getting the details nailed. I’ve played with him live and also use his remote recording services for a project I’m working on. The work always gets leveled up when Nick Ineck is on the track.

  11. Review by James Meder

    It's always a pleasure to hear Nick play. He has what seems like a never-ending bag of chops... but more importantly he is a kind human being, is professional and can deliver most anything you dish at him. In addition to these qualities, he keeps with him a good set of drum gear which is ever important when getting tones in a recording studio or in a live band scenario. He made the recording session I had with him go very smoothly. I will not hesitate to reach out to Nick for session drumming duties in the future!!

    I’ve been playing with Nick - both in-studio and live - for years, and his professionalism, well-rounded skill set (drums, percussion, vocals, writing, entertainment business expertise - you name it), and all-around good vibes are only just a few of the many reasons why you should choose him for your project. He does not disappoint. Period.

    Nick is a fantastic, reliable drummer that I've had the pleasure of working with for a variety of gigs and some recordings. As a professional musician and performer myself (singer/guitarist/pianist) it's important for me work with other people who are solid players, have a vast repertoire, and have a great attitude. Nick is all of these. He brings his energy to the table whether it is a cover gig, he's playing my original music, or he's laying down a drum track in the studio. Highly recommended quality musician and guy.

    I have worked with Nick on many songs over the last 5 years, he is my go-to guy for drums for both live and recording. He is professional, quick, and a fantastic energy and personality to work with. His talent has brought many of my songs to life. He is great at nailing a vision and specific style, but also creative in adding his own flavor if you ask him to. I cannot recommend him enough.

    Nick is my go-to drummer. I have been working in music for years, and between hiring him for my live shows and hiring him for my studio sessions, he is always a consummate professional. He's a fun, nice guy, his drum takes are fresh and consistent, and he doesn't have an ego. If you want him to change things up from his previous take, he gets adventurous until you can both dial in the exact sound and pattern that you want to hear. He doesn't get stuck in doing the same old things and in the same old patterns. I highly recommend Nick for your next project. He'll make you sound goooooooood.

    There's nobody better than Nick Ineck in the game :)
    There's no denying his drum and percussion playing talent. But where he goes beyond the average talent is in his ability to listen and absolutely nail what is best for the artist and/or specific song at hand. You won't find a better, more attentive drummer than Nick.

  17. Review by Dru DeCaro

    Nick is my favorite drummer in LA. I've just had him record on 5 of my songs. He was quick, professional, and he sounds great. Will definitely continue to work with him!

    I've had the pleasure of working with Nick on many occasions and it's safe to say, he is one of the best in the business. He is dedicated and professional with the ability to play in many different styles and genres with authenticity. He will exceed your expectations all while having a great time and sharing some laughs along the way! Hire him before somebody else does.

    Nick has an amazing ear and a tight pocket. He's steady as a rock but also inventive and unique. I've had such a wonderful experience working with Nick and will continue to hire him for future gigs. If you want a guarantee on your track, hire Nick!
