I Will Create Custom Drum Tracks For Your Songs
Local timeJanuary 27, 2021
I'm Luke O'Kelley, and I consider it an honor that I get to take part in creating and performing songs. I know that your songs are a unique expression of who you are, and it's my mission to help you take them where you want them to go. I've played...
There are no extra services
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, MYFEVER, Zach Seabaugh, The Welcome Home, Grant Cowan, Oak House, and Andrew Blooms.
Please send me a message before ordering to see my availability.

6.5x14 Ludwig Supraphonic

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).
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!
