Elliott Henshaw

Recording Sessions

If you would like me to play drums on a project for you I can offer this service thanks to my home studio set up. Please contact me for rates.

I use Logic X and can send you the drum stems as flat WAV or AIFF files. Alternatively I can mix the drums for you and send as a complete package.

My kit is set up with 11 microphones – kick in, kick out, snare top, snare bottom, hi hat, 2 x rack toms, floor tom, 2 x overheads and a room mic.

I have over 25 snare drums to choose from and over 40 cymbals along with a choice of drum kits – from vintage Slingerlands to modern Ludwigs.

All I need is a demo track, a click track and/or a chart (yes I read music!)

I can offer a really quick turnaround so that your project keeps on schedule.

I have recorded from my home studio for many clients including Leo Sayer, Tony Christie, Paul Englishby, The Len Phillips Big Band and Oli Julian.

Please have a look and listen below to some of the projects that I have been involved with.


Elliott is not only one of the countries top drummers, he can also provide bespoke drum tracks for your project remotely. Whether the parts are fully notated or arrived at by ear and discussion, the results are always superb. The quality of recording that comes back is second to none, and he’ll respond quickly to any suggestions, making the whole experience efficient and highly musical.

Paul Englishby – Award winning composer for film, TV and theatre.

Elliott is an incredible musician who always brings flair and style to his recordings. He always returns music quickly, which is a huge benefit to any producer. His drumming is peerless and he brings his own personality to a recording whilst retaining the core of what I have asked for. I would strongly suggest you use Elliott on any recording. He is a great friend and a great player.

Richard Beadle – Musical Director – Hamilton, London. Composer, producer, orchestrator.

Elliott has always been an MD’s dream on live shows, gigs and concerts. What a joy knowing I can now have him do remote/on-line sessions for me. He gets a great drum sound, turns around whatever I need really quickly with all his usual care and diligence. Wonderful to know that he can add this facility to an already impressive skill set.

Barry Robinson – Musical director, arranger, producer
