Online session drummer Shay Godwin and engineer Thai Long Ly did the drum tracks for this song by up-and-coming country artist Natalie Hone. Producer Lindsey Jackson contacted eDrumSessions.com from Sydney, Australia for remote drum tracks.
While there is the option to produce sessions remotely in real time with eDrumSessions, Jackson chose to send MIDI drum mock-ups and have session drummer Godwin use them as a template for his playing. The mixing is done well, and represents what we do at eDrumSessions pretty well. Enjoy!
eDrumSessions.com, an online recording studio, has been in operation since 2008. We now operate exclusively at Bell Sound, an amazing recording studio. The tracking and control rooms were designed by Bill Putnam, a master and legend of sound design. In addition to the Neve 8232 console, there is much outboard gear at our disposal, as you can see on our gear page. We also have endless mic choices for all situations, as Bell’s mic locker is stocked with everything imaginable; from vintage to modern, FETs, tubes, ribbons, etc.
Great care is taken to provide you with the best drum tracks. Drums are tuned immaculately, usually in the key of the song. Session drummer Godwin is always “in the moment” and focused on bringing the most musicality to music he is recording. Engineer Thai Long Ly’s reputation for getting unbelievably pristine and powerful drum tones is well-deserved and growing. Ly knows how to get drum sounds that virtually jump out of your speakers. These are attention-getting, beautiful tones — and combined with a great drum performance, your music can’t go wrong.
eDrumSessions also offers online recording studio services of all kinds, including guitar tracks, keyboard tracks (as well as B3 and grand piano), steel pedal, strings, horns, mixing services, and more.
Online session drummer Shay Godwin performs on CBS Late Late Show. Prior to founding of eDrumSessions.com as a way to bring his skills to a global clientele as on online session drummer, Godwin played with artist Butterfly Boucher and many others. This performance has Godwin backing up Boucher, who was then with Interscope/A&M.
In addition to this performance, Godwin toured with Butterfly, opening for Sarah McLachlan on her “Afterglow” tour, and opening for Barenaked Ladies. Additional television performances with Butterfly include Mtv’s “Advance Warning”, and “Sharon Osbourne Show”.

This lysol commercial has been airing in various forms since 2010. Drum tracks were performed by session drummer Shay Godwin and recorded by engineer Thai Long Ly.
