Memphis Drummers Collective

I know it's a few months away but… This will be an incredible opportunity to hear and meet 3 of Memphis' best drummers. I have had the pleasure of working with all 3 of them in both the studio and live situations. They are the most professional, talented, tasteful and keeper of timers I know!!!  click the link provided for more information.

Official Site Launch

It’s been a long time coming… but I’ve finally managed to launch my official website. Designed by Candace Joseph, this will be my new online home for sharing all things relating to music production, recording, and mixing.

I’m excited to finally have my own home on the web... a place that feels like me, and a place that I can continue to make a contribution to Memphis culture and beyond.

I look forward to making music with you!

John

Had the pleasure of tracking drums, trombone and vocals for Kameron Whalum at The Grove Recording Studio.  Check out his Super Bowl 48 Halftime Show performance with Bruno Mars

We had Chris Pat. Bounds on drums… he killed it!  It was a super laid back session. I really enjoyed the time with these guys!  I look forward to our next session getting things done.  Stay tuned….

Most of my recording techniques originated from the early guys. Their captured sounds stand the test of time and still sound as good today as they did then. There is something to be said about that. Performance and skill from the artist played the most important role in the studio. This article describes it well... Authenticity at its best!
