How do remote drum sessions work?
Discuss your project
Let's chat about your song and how to discover what kind of drumming you're looking for.
Send your music
Send me a rough mix of your song and I'll start recording drafts.
Check drum parts
You'll review some drafts to make sure we're on the right track.
Record final take
After your approval of a direction, I'll do a final take of your song.
Pay your way
I accept payment via Venmo or PayPal. Rates vary by complexity and/or duration of the track, but typically range between $50–$150 per song (does not include additional percussion)
I send you the stems — the individual drum tracks for you or your engineer to place into your project.
Want to turn your songs into a full-blown production?
Discuss your project
Tell me about your vision. Share some inspiring reference tracks. We'll come up with a plan to bring it all to life!
Send your songs
Whether you've started multitracking at home or you just have a voice memo of you and your guitar, send it over and I'll get started right away.
You'll hear your song develop with all the instrumentation and vibe we discussed. Give feedback to narrow in on the final direction.
Who's on what?
Need other instruments? No problem — I can provide drums, bass, electric guitar, synths, and percussion. Already have someone? I can import their tracks. I can also recommend additional top-notch studio musicians if needed.
Bring it on home
After we've got the final production in the bag, we prepare it for mixing, mastering, and distribution. These are additional services I can provide or you can take elsewhere.
Pay your way
I accept payment via Venmo or PayPal. Rates vary by complexity of production, but typically range between $300–$800 per song (does not include outside musician fees, mixing, or other services)

Remote Collaboration (2020)
Jared and Seth and I used to play together a lot in the 90s and 00s. When the pandemic hit, we knew exactly what to do: a remote Radiohead cover! This production takes on 13 musicians — friends from all over the U.S. — rock band instrumentation, plus a few vocalists and some orchestral players. Oh, and a cardboard robot.
Additionally featuring: Jared Fiske, Seth Adams, Ray Kingston and special guests

“Good lord. This is so good, Ray. I love where you took it. It feels alive now!”
“Honestly, I'm blown away. Such a good direction. It feels authentic.”
“Ray, I’m loving what I'm hearing! Great work!”
“I say fuck to the yeah. Well done, Raymond.”
“Absolutely loving it. This, and all the tunes. Really grateful you jumped into this head first. Not only bailed us out but gave us a damn good foundation to do something special with. Cheers!”
“Sounds really good. I like the production a lot. It’s supportive, shimmery and smart without demanding attention. Great job.”
