a compilation of drumming examples
Time Signatures offers several recorded examples of my playing, with production from several different studios.
It features a few of my own compositions, exploring different musical styles within the instrumentation.
I am offering this drumming demo to any interested parties seeking a studio drummer. Simply email
me with your local address and I will send a free copy of the CD. I am available for recording projects within the greater Seattle area.
