Drum Wagon

All things percussive

This time, it’s some tracks dredged up from the turn of the century. This was for Brooke Ratliff back in Detroit. I’d worked for her once before around 1994 in a group called Motion Control. That sorta petered out, but I got a call from her in late 1999 to lay down the drums for her new album. It was all new material, but at least I already was familiar with her style, so I agreed.

While I had been working with a click during my practice routine, I’d never before done it in a studio environment. Needless to say, this was quite an experience and I’m very glad I did it. The click has become such an important aspect of my rehearsing and recording as of late, and I really think it’s helped my meter and continues to do so.

For personal reasons, however, this would be the last I’d play drums for nearly 6 full years before jumping back on the wagon in 2006.

Tracks are here.
