Professional Drum Tracks By Luke O'Kelley for $40

I've played drums live, on the road, and in the studio for the past 7 years. I have experience playing mostly rock, pop, country, and folk/singer-songwriter music. Artists I've played with include: Matt Papa, The Tuten Brothers, Zach Seabaugh, The Welcome Home, Grant Cowan, Oak House, and Andrew Blooms.

Please send me a message before ordering to see my availability.

Drums:
Gretsch USA Custom maple kit (12, 15, 16, 22)
Gretsch Catalina Birch kit (8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 22)
6.5x14 Ludwig Supraphonic
6.5x14 Ludwig Black Beauty
3x13 Pearl steel piccolo snare

For recording I use Logic Pro X, 2 Presonus Firestudio interfaces, and a 32 channel Allen & Heath G2200 Console (11 simultaneous channels currently).

Mics:
2 KSM32s (overheads)
Shure Beta 52A (kick in)
1 Shure SM57s (snare top)
1 AT2020 (kick out)
CAD stage 7 (snare bottom)
2 Sennheiser 421s (toms)
2 AKG 414 XLS (stereo room mics)

I've also got various shakers, marracas, aux toms, and tambourines. A full list of my equipment is available on request.

I typically record in 24 bit at 4.1 khz, but can change this if needed.

I do not charge you until you are completely satisfied with my performance. I usually don't need to give more than 2 revisions, but will give more if needed.

Unless otherwise designated, all work I do through Airgigs is "Work for Hire" meaning I don't retain any creative writes to my drum tracks or your song once the order is complete and delivered. I'd be happy to sign a "Work for Hire" form if you'd like to make this official.

Want to give it a shot?

Send me your track in an mp3 file along with any specific directions you have for me: style of playing, intensity, dynamics, drum tones, breaks, specific fills or anything else. If you have scratch or programmed drums, send me one mp3 with them in and one without. The more direction you can provide the better!

Once you send me all this info, I will send you a draft within 3 days and we can discuss what you like and what you would like me to change (if anything). Once you are satisfied, I will send you all the individual drum tracks (11 or more if I used percussion or drum samples). I can send them as wav, mp3, or another file type if you prefer.

Have questions or concerns? Let me know and I'd be happy to answer them!

Thanks for your interest!

- Luke

    Great drums tracks from Luke once again, who is a very good musician.
    And still a very nice person, who has been always present, and patient, when it appeared that I had technical difficulties, doing all what he could to help. You cannot expect more than someone having so a cool, nice and professionnal attitude.
    Thanks so much Luke !

    Furthermore, Luke provided me with much options, without I asked him, as I was already very happy of what he made.

  17. Review By: briandanehansen Sep 24, 2018

    Worth every penny! Luke's drum tones sound amazing. He perfectly matched his drum tones to the song and took my programmed drums and brought them to life with his performance. The artist I was producing was so happy with Luke's drum tones and performance for his song. I'm looking forward to having Luke record on more tracks that I produce!

  22. Review By: Pesso86 Sep 8, 2018

    Great job from Luke, especially considering that I asked him to play in a style that is not his usual. I appreciated the open and clear communication, as well as how quickly he delivered a quality product.

  23. Review By: JohnnyWalylko Aug 7, 2018

    Luke is super talented. I'd give him more stars if I could. Put in extra work on his own even after I told him that I was satisfied.

  49. Review By: julius2790 Oct 15, 2017

    I had a great experience working with Luke. He does a great job of communicating and was enthusiastic and receptive to ideas. Will be back!

  50. Review By: whayse1 Jun 5, 2017

    I sent Luke a rough recording with a cheesy drum loop, as well as the instruments and vocals without the drum loop. Luke was able to take the song and add the human element that it so badly needed. The best part of his performance is that he actually listened to the song and played what it needed instead of trying to be overly flashy. As the song progressed, he made subtle changes to the dynamics that made the song sound bigger and more urgent as it went, elevating a simple song to a new level.

  51. Review By: Frank Mar 28, 2017

    The task was not easy as my track was already mixed with a machine-drums on it.
    Luke created nice tracks on the top of it, and now the song has that human-touch in the drums.
    He took the challenge and did a very good job!. Highly recommendable.!
    Thanks!.
    Frank.

  52. Review By: jonparks Mar 9, 2017

    Luke will be my go-to drummer from now on! He has recorded multitrack drums for three of my songs and done an excellent job on each one. It's a pleasure working with him.

  53. Review By: jonparks Mar 5, 2017

    Luke is an incredible drummer with excellent time and great artistic sensibility. I love the drum track he created for my song and already plan to hire him to record several more in the near future. Not only is he a gifted musician, he is also a friendly collaborator who will ensure that you are satisfied with his service.

  54. Review By: asbjornkallevik Feb 14, 2017

    It was a pleasure to collaborate with Luke. He is a great drummer and provided me with a multitrack drum recording that will go perfectly with my mix. Communication went smoothly and he responded very well to my feedback in order to get the sound I was looking for. Looking forward to working with Luke again!

  55. Review By: seanjean Oct 13, 2016

    Great experience. Communication was always quick and easy. Luke was enthusiastic about the project and his playing added a lot to the demo track I sent. I would definitely work with Luke again!
