Last night at the Democratic National Convention, Alicia Keys performed “Girl On Fire” to introduce Hillary Clinton!
Our Dylan Wissing recorded the drums for that song back in 2012. This song ended up becoming the lead single for Alicia’s Grammy Winning, Platinum Selling, #1 record “Girl On Fire”. Here’s a video on how that performance and sound were achieved!
This week’s #1 Rock Album (and #2 on the BillBoard 200 Chart) is “Hard Love” by NEEDTOBREATHE, which features our own Dylan Wissing on drums!

Howdy, folks! We’ve been busy these months at Indie Studio Drummer recording drums for various beautiful artists.
Dylan Wissing played drums on “Home”, by UK artist Ella Eyre, with the awesome Dave Tozer (John Legend, “Love In The Future”) producing. The track was used in the show Grey’s Anatomy and will be appearing on her August 14th release “Feline”, on Virgin.
Dylan also tracked drums for another UK-based artist, Galia Arad. You can hear his playing throughout Galia’s album “This Is Lost“, produced by Riley McMahon (Spottiswoode and His Enemies). Galia is currently touring the UK and Europe supporting the legendary Jools Holland.
Finally, Dylan also tracked drums for Behr Paints, working with composing house Human Worldwide. Production notes called for “Questlove playing with Robert Parker”, and the finished track was due just 90 minutes after we received it!
Eminem’s “Shady XV” is the #1 Rap Album this week, and we’re thrilled to announce Dylan Wissing is playing drums on it!
