“Mark is a first-rate drummer who is able to make what is ‘in your head’ a reality. His skills as a musician are matched by his abilities in recording and production. He is professional, reliable and reassuringly diligent. He is also a really nice guy to work with. Highly recommended.”
Benjamin Clarke – Songwriter
“Mark is at the top of his game and always delivers 110% on my projects. He has 3 essential things required for a first class session drummer: Professionalism, experience and attention to detail, hire him now!!”
Mark’s intuition, feel and dynamics on the kit puts him among the best drummers I have worked with. He is well versed in a variety of musical styles (everything from soul to jazz to drum & bass) and has great sensitivity to song arrangements, always able to enhance a song while staying true to it. His skill as a drummer is also matched by his skill as an engineer. We worked together on a song recently, with me in the States and Mark in the UK, and he was able to capture the feel and tone of what I was looking for on the drums perfectly. One of the easiest musicians to work with and an absolute stand up bloke.
“Mark is not just an excellent and super-tight drummer, he also has the key ingredients and versatility to getting the right drum sound. His attention to detail is second to none and for me that’s really important as a solo rock artist, as I incorporate a lot of styles, from Jazz, Acoustic, Soul, Blues and Pop. He’s really easy to communicate with, super clear and works fast. A highly skilled drummer and engineer with great feel and top equipment!”
I have worked with Mark over the past two years i can honestly say that ‘remote drumming’ is the ‘future’ for a many number of musicians who want the best for their music.
It is certainly a revolution as far as Neil and myself are concerned. We have spent many hours introducing new drummers to the studio & our arrangements …the setting up & mic levels are crucial in any drum recording but discovered that this ‘valuable time’ could be spent on the songs themselves writing..arranging.. mixing & mastering..
Marks way of playing & recording is more expedient, hassle free and is not only first class but world class. His musicianship is second to none.
Working with Mark has resulted in a Nashville song publishing deal ..with the publishers now listening to everything i record!!
