Really funky drumset grooves w/ 1 free percussion track added for 1st time clients for $75
Over 15 years experience and B.A from Berklee College of Music. Prefer Funk and Jazz, but I love any song with a backbeat. My name is Wes and I currently live in Portland, OR. I used to work at a drum shop, and enjoy all kinds of percussion. I am looking forward to contributing grooves to lifting your project! Let's start a conversation about your vision.
My playing style has been described as "groovy af", r&b, soul, rock, jazz funk, hip hop, and rudimental. I also produce electronic beats, or can provide a hybrid of live and programmed on request.
