One recent project Adam has worked on is the Skins Drum Performance Method book series, written by Dave Longman. The book features a wide variety of genres & techniques for drum students to check out and was a great project to work on. Dave had these kind words to say about my compositions.
So many people said to me “you could write the songs yourself, Dave”, and maybe I could have, but they would have taken a lifetime and still sucked. When I started the project, I knew the backing tracks had to be cool so that people would want to play them. But they also had to fit my complicated requirements so that the book would have progression. Adam wrote, performed and produced all 18 tracks within the bounds of my complicated remit and nailed each and every one.
“I want a sort of 50s surf rock thing…” nailed.
“Sort of an 80s electro pop thing…” nailed.
“Hip hop…” nailed.
“Hair metal… and it has to have guitar harmonies”… you get the idea. Adam’s skill, patience, attention to detail and personal pride in his work have delivered 18 big fat tracks that I love. Dude, I can never thank you enough.
