Sean O'Rourke


Clients testimonials for Studio and Live drumming


"Quite simply, Sean is one of the best drummers on the planet! I've called upon him often as a live player (including at this year's Atlanta Jazz Festival), as well as for his excellent recording and production skills (including on my upcoming CD, Guiro!); and he always delivers the goods. It's rare to find a musician that combines incredible feel with technical expertise; but Sean's got it all!"
Producer, Composer, Multi-instrumentalist


"Sean is a premium musician and a 'Jedi' drummer. He filled in on a live gig with my band, without any rehearsals, and was spot on. He's performed drum sessions on several of my songs from his own studio, and the drums sounded fabulous, and were recorded very professionally, and in a timely manner. His performance and creativity was on the money, with very little direction, and he picked up on things I had not thought of. Professional, positive, creative... these are the attributes a producer looks for from the talent on his recordings, and Sean's got 'em" - Scott McDavid (composer/producer)--


"There may be alot of great musicians out there, but it's very rare to find someone with great taste. Even though I'm in a different continent, Sean understood what my songs needed just by listening to a crappy guide with the click track I sent him.. Sean has the vision of a great producer and I'm not afraid to say he is probably one of the best drummers in the world right now, It was an awesome experience for me!"


"The most important thing I look for in a Drum session is a Drummer that delivers 'Feel' and 'Tone'. Sean's got modern day techniques with my favorite "play with your guts and balls in your face old school groove". This cat has got my favorite dose!"

"I recently used Sean on the title track of my 2008 CD release, "Body Mind & Spirit". I was working out of a local recording studio in Kennesaw and was able to easily e-mail Sean all of my audio files. He very quickly turned around the drum tracks and did a superior job. It's definitely the best track on the CD, in large part due to Sean's outstanding talents. I have also had the pleasure of working with him live many times. He is one of the greatest drummers I have ever worked with. If he is available for your project, GRAB HIM! You will be thrilled with the results!"

"Killer drum tracks, affordable rates, fat sound…we couldn’t be more satisfied. Working with Sean was a pleasure, professional in every way. Can’t wait to hear him on our next project."

"I was unfamiliar with the process of outsourcing, when Sean and I first spoke about it. Sean took the time to help me through the technology part and was great at working with me to get the drum parts right. He's a terrific drummer and a great professional. The parts were always perfect on the first samples he returned. This was my first full length project, and Sean's drumming really made the difference in it. I had a lot of questions through the process and Sean was extremely patient and helpful. I am working on a new project and have come back to Sean to add the drums to that because I was so impressed with how the first one turned out." Mike Panzeca


"Sean is not only phenomenal drummer, he’s highly proficient in the studio with great chops on pro-tools, an exceptional ear, and a simultaneously creative and pragmatic approach to making sounds and songs come to life. Working with him has been a pleasure!" Tyler Sadler


"Sean did a great job for me on my new CD. Great drum parts, fantastic sounds, in-the-pocket feel, and quick turnaround!
I can recommend Sean O'Rourke as a world-class musician."
