Give your music the attention it deserves and experience the difference live drums can bring to your projects. You can provide as much or as little guidance as you see fit and can even direct the session live using video messaging if you wish. My aim is to allow you to access the sound you're hearing in your head and realise the potential of your music.

Visit the customdrumtracks.co.uk website for more information, or email to discuss your project.
