I have been producing music at the highest level in Los Angeles for 20 years and have recently relocated to Raleigh where\ in my search for an in-house session drummer landed me a chance meeting with Tarik Ghiradella. He has been the only drummer I have used since moving to NC, his talent, ability, musicality and genuine enthusiasm for life and music has made making records a true pleasure. Tarik is the man and a bad ass drummer!

We've had the privilege of having Tarik play the drums on 9 of our studio recordings. He has the uncanny ability to know the exact drum pattern a song needs. He knows when to play, when not to play, when to highlight sections with drum fills and when to stay in the pocket and lock things together. Tarik's not only a solid studio drummer with picture perfect meter he's a great collaborator. The suggestions and drum patterns he executed for our songs truly brought them to life. We highly recommend Tarik for any type of music project. He's versatile and can deliver beyond expectations on any type of genre. The bottom line? Tarik rocks! Oh, and, most importantly, he's a guy of integrity to top it all.

Tarik is the definition of professionalism. He has recorded drum tracks for four of my original songs. Each time I have been extremely pleased with the musicianship, timing and quality displayed in his recordings.

Tarik has an excellent command of different rhythm styles.  He also has a great feel for dynamics and an understanding of what a song requires.  Intense rock, intricate fusion, delicate jazz...Tarik can do it all.  Tarik played with my group for almost 12 months and I can tell you....he knows his stuff!
