Hunter Hayes, Travis Tritt, Keith Anderson, Blue Merle, Steve Cropper, Aaron Goodvin, Matt Kennon, Lisa Brokop, George Ducas, Rick Derringer, Jimmy Johnson, EMP Project, and more.

He’s a fantastic choice for either live or session work in all styles.

Another great choice also available through our studio? David Northrup, the groove king. If you need drums on a pop or rock song, he’s the man. He’s also great at swing, blues … you-name-it.

Our studio session player is ready to cut your drum track!

David has toured with many major acts including a multi-year stint with Travis Tritt. When Wynnona Judd’s drummer/husband was injured in a motorcycle accident David was the drummer called on to fill in. He’s been with us since we first opened doors in Nashville 10 years ago and has been a part of numerous recording projects. See our website and this blog for more information about David!

Both drummers are available on projects recorded in our studio (why not come in, record and meet them?) or through our drums over the Internet service, Drum Tracks Online.

Jenee also plays regularly for Martina McBride.

William Ellis, drummer for Montgomery Gentry will also be on board. We’ll also be recording bass guitar and guitar.

We’ll promptly reply with the cost. 25% down will secure your slot but all remaining fees must be paid in full, in cash, by first downbeat. There’s room, we’ll work all night if necessary.

Update 11-26-13. 6:00 p.m. We tracked multiple songs today starting at 10 a.m. after which every part was backed up to additional hard drives (we do 1 backup as we record). Long day but the tracks sound great so far, we’re looking forward to the next session!
