    Jim is a master of his craft. Highly recommend.

  3. Review By: ngeorge Jul 8, 2019

    Jim fully produced my song, adding instruments, including HIS perfect drums, BGVs and more. He treated the song as if it were his own with great creativity, attention to musical detail, excellent production, excellent balance of tracks, and great care. The result was fabulous. What a treat to work with such a talented top professional. I hope to do many more songs together.

    to have the opportunity to have such an industry giant lay down tracks for my song is a dream come true. Jim is a pleasure to work with. He is down to earth a great communicator and a brilliant drummer. I will be using Jim again for sure.

    Jim did an excellent job on this track. Of course, he's a top notch musician so it's really a treat and an honor to have him play on any song, let alone mine. Excellent experience. Top notch drumming.

    Jim did an outstanding job with the drum tracks. His playing style was tasteful and appropriate for the genre/time period I sought to mimic. His touch and nuance are the markings of a true professional and someone who loves what he does.

  8. Review By: ArthurBod Jun 13, 2019

    Jim is a real pro! Great work, great sound, great feel! Best of all, he's very easy to work with.

  9. Review By: erountree4 Jun 6, 2019

    Fifth song i've done with Jim. He plays any style and fits the song. No revisions needed on any of mine.

  10. Review By: erountree4 May 23, 2019

    Jim is really, really good. He will make your songs better. When you get his drum tracks back you will think about them in a different, better way. He can play any style well.

  16. Review By: Adventureroad Apr 20, 2019

    What a pro! To have access to this kind of talent is nothing short of incredible.

    He is positive, well mannered and last but not least an incredibly skilled musician. The communication was flawless, which is super important.

    The recording came in exceptionally high quality multi-track files, for all our mixing and mastering needs.

    I cannot wait to work more with Jim in the near future.

    Versatile and nuanced- Jim's musicality is unmatched. Files are pristine. His professionalism as a band leader, veteran performer and elite instructor show immediately. To have access to his experience, taste and talent is a joy. The best.

  43. Review By: ALittleBitCountry Jan 14, 2019

    NO surprise here whatsoever: HUGELY awesome job in every way, from the sketching stage until the final execution. Can't say enough positive stuff about Jim's abilities (they speak for themselves, clearly). What a great, excellent drummer!!!

  44. Review By: BenjaminMRobinson Dec 24, 2018

    Jim played everything I asked him to play and a bit more. . Jim nailed it did it in head on with only one small drum fill revision!

    He contacted me to take notes to see if I liked the idea of his revision and finished the track that day...Christmas eve!

    I am so glad I hired him and will continue to have him lay down drums on all of my future projects.

    The real deal!
    Thanks again Jim!

    Jim didn't just nail it what we asked for - he added so much more to it. The very best.

  51. Review By: BenjaminMRobinson Dec 1, 2018

    Jim was awesome to work with. I feel privileged to have a musician of his caliber working with me.

    The song I am working on really has a radio ready drum track with Jim's drum foundation.

    The best part of this experience was that I could tell that Jim put a lot of time learning the song, It was obvious this was not just a couple of pass throughs and comps. It was a well learned drum part that followed the subtle nuances of the rhythm guitar the the vocals follow.


  52. Review By: jelsioba Nov 11, 2018

  100. Review By: rickymecaslin Mar 19, 2018

    Jim is absolutely the best! First pass he completely nailed the feel and emotion of what I was looking for on my song. From initial contact, he jumped on the tune right away and provided a nice mp3 over my "roughed out" scratch . Once I gave the OK, he knocked out the recording and quickly provided the final tracks. Jim's a true professional with a passion for helping you get what you're after! Don't give it a second thought, he'll definitely have your back and them some!

  103. Review By: deerockcountry Feb 13, 2018

    Jim is one amazing drumming and he easy to communicate with.I gave Jim an overall view of what this project is about,the style of music and few suggestions on what I wanted.
    Jim let me know he wrote a chart for the song and brought a vibe with his playing...I was totally blown away,Jim had played the perfect for my song.I will most certainly use Jim on other songs on my upcoming CD and possibly shake his hand and say thank you..being in Nashville that could happen easily.
    Thanks Jim
