Remote Recording from drummer Emily Dolan Davies

Playing to sell-out audiences around the world, professional drummer Emily Dolan Davies celebrates 11 years of international touring and recording. Working with industry legends and innovative, upcoming artists and bands including Bryan Ferry, The Darkness, Tricky and Cher Lloyd, she has played the world’s best music festivals and featured on major American, UK and European TV shows.

A woman with fantastic ambition and gumption, she excites with her versatility, and her undeniable feel and groove makes her one of the most sought after drummers in the world.

Emily has now opened her own studio, EDD’s Place to offer remote drum recording services worldwide. Her studio is completely purpose built by some of the world’s leading acousticians, and boasting a separate control room and live room, to give the most high quality sound for your recording.


Remote Drum Recordings

Emily is now offering remote recording sessions for all your rhythmic needs. It’s all done online, and without the extra cost of hiring a studio and engineer. Here’s how it works:

1. Send Emily the track you would like drums on, and in what format you would like back (see table below)

– Ideally with a separate click track, and if you have guide drums, please make sure this is also on a separate track. Any references to tracks with a particular drum sound/style would be very useful too.

2. She will then go and drum her heart out for your track, and send you back an mp3 of her favourite take for your approval.

3. Tweaks will be made between the 2 of you until you are completely happy.

– Unlimited revisions – your happiness is what counts

4. Once the track has been signed off, it’s now time for you to pay the lady.

– Accepts paypal or a bank transfer

5. Upon receipt of payment, a private link will be sent to you to download the full quality version your track.

(Pay What You Want)

Why are we letting people pay what they want? Everyone around the world is at different stages of their life and in different situations. We believe money shouldn’t limit creativity. I remember being a young student and not being able to afford things that I needed or wanted, so wanted to give an opportunity to those who normally may not be able to afford this service.

The only thing I ask for in return is a testimonial (only if you’re happy with the service of course) and feedback on how it could be made better.

This offer may only last a month or 2, or could last forever! Just take it up whilst you can, and be fair.

Emily added the drums to my latest song with such sensitivity. Delicately played so as not to overpower. She plays with so much heart and sophistication. I would trust her wonderful taste and eclectic knowledge to work on every track of mine!
