Brought Power and Life To My Song

Donna's positive and natural playing style and sound brought power and life to my song.  When you hear Donna play you'll wish she was in your band, but at least for the recording it will sound that way!  She really immersed herself in the song and nailed it first time with a take that was technically flawless yet with feeling and creativity.  Donna is friendly and easy to work with.  Even though we had a trans-atlantic time difference she responded to emails as though she was living in my town. Donna is knowledgable and experienced with the technical side of recording, perfectly quantising my rough acoustic demo and providing the final tracks in the specific sound format I requested.

Exceptionally Good Drummer

Donna is an exceptionally good drummer and one of the best on the South Coast. Her unconditional love for drumming and huge amount of experience in both studio/live environments shows through her playing and work. With access to her own studio, you can be guaranteed a professional sounding perfect drum track! Added bonus is that you won't find a nicer person to work with!
