Where To Find Session Drummers For Hire

Live Drums For Your Songs


Have you ever had a song idea that you thought would not be possible because you don't know any good drummers that can record for you? I totally have had that situation before! I often create songs in pop and R&B styles where I use a lot of MIDI and sample instruments, but the touch of live drums is just missing! I used to think, "Well since I don't know any drummers in my area that I can get to record, this song is a waste." Don't be like me and think that there isn't a way. Because there is!

Session drummers from all over the world have their instruments set up as well as a home recording studio where they can record drums for you within a week, and sometimes even within days. Finding a musician for your song release is nowhere near as hard as it used to be a few years ago, and anyone can do it as long as they have some money set aside!

The awesome thing about finding session drummers online is that a lot of them will play for your songs at a very affordable price. This is perfect for most music creators that are not looking to break the bank when it comes to creating and releasing their new music. Session drummers are available for you that can work with almost any genre to bring your tracks to life. 

Live Drums Vs. MIDI Drums


MIDI drums can work really well in today's world of music, but they don't always work. Sometimes you have a song idea that really needs the feel of live instrumentation, especially the percussion. A lot of percussive instrumentals that come out in popular songs today seriously need that intimacy and oomph that only a live drum set can bring to a song. This is especially true for slower songs that really bring you in-depth emotional energy. 

Live Drums Vs. Drum Samples 


Live drum samples can often bring you that authentic drum sound since the samples often come from live drums. The problem is, that you can only do so much with a sample. Some sample drum loops are more than just 4 or 8 bars, but they still can't provide you with that custom sound you had envisioned as a session drummer could. Sample drum sounds are often used by many other artists for many other song releases, so it takes away from the uniqueness of your song. 

Top Rated Drummers Available 


You can find drummers on many sites including Airgigs and Fiverr where session musicians advertise their services to other artists, musicians, and bands looking for a stellar collaboration. The good thing about sites like these is that you can hear plenty of samples of their previous work and read detailed reviews on how it is to work with them for your songs. 

I do session work on Fiverr as well, so I thought it would be a great idea to check out one of my fellow musicians over there that focus on instruments while I focus on singing and songwriting. Boy, did I find some really good talent when it comes to the drummer section over there! Here are a few standout sellers that can give you some amazing live drum recordings for your upcoming project. 

Silvio Centamore


This drummer from Italy is a great choice if you have a pop or rock song that you would like some live acoustic drums for. Once you give him your idea and song, he can send back a drum track within a few days! Be sure to reach out to him first before you order to make sure it's a good fit for both of you. 

Ben Amstutz


If you're in need of a drummer that has a knack for the genre of jazz that can also throw in some rock vibes, check out this drummer that is available for hire. His prices are very affordable and he also plays a few other instruments as well. Check out some of his work and reach out if you are interested! 

Francis Cohaz


Here's a good fit if you have songs in the genres of soul, pop, funk, blues, reggae, or even some soulful rock! He also gives great discounts to returning buyers of his. Many people wind up returning to him, and you can tell just by his samples why that is. Contact him before you order as well to give him a good idea for what you need.
