What clients say about Brian:

TOM FRANCIS Next Time by Pughouse Studios on SoundCloud - Hear the ...“Brian is a serious session player. I’ve played with some great drummers and Brian is absolutely top tier and world class. There’s not many players who can play to a click with amazing groove and feel and that’s exactly what Brian did. He found the right sounds and gave me multiple takes, all of which were phenomenal. I’m a singer/songwriter and producer and I literally scrutinize every strike that a drummer lays down and this guys is flawless. Also captured beautifully! The first of many!” – Tom Francis – Singer, Songwriter and Producer – Australia
