Profile Information

Drummer / Percussionist (conga,tabla,cajon & various noise makers)
Company Name:
Session Drummer For Hire h 1 615 889 7445 c 1 985 710 3969
About Me:
Modern Drummer calls him “a drummer on the move”. Who is he? He’s Rory Faciane a Louisiana native who is making quite a name for himself both on the local and national music scene with his drumming talent. Rory comes by music naturally, his grandfather was a country and western artist who owned and operated his own recording studio, record label and publishing company. As a result, Rory grew up around musicians.
Rory started drumming with local bands on the New Orleans circuit as a teenager. Up until the age of 17, he was self taught, playing mostly by ear. Desiring to further his natural talent as a drummer, he moved west to study at the Percussion Institute of Technology in Los Angeles. This led to work with several bands and recording projects in the Los Angeles area. After graduating from the Percussion Institute of Technology with honors, he also studied with drumming legends Gregg Bissonette and Guy Gelso. He also began doing drum clinics in local schools and in music stores. Rory won first place in the 1993 drum wars-double bass division, first place in the 1994 drum wars–single bass division and first place in the 1995 drum wars-double bass division. Also in 1995, he released his first educational drum video/dvd titled “The Essentials of Rock Drumming”. That same year he recorded and toured with Ash America recording artist Biloxi.
In 2000 Rory recorded and toured with Barchen Records artist The Jay B. Elston Band, a southern blues-rock trio that have two C.D.’s to their credit. Releasing his second educational drum video/dvd titled “The Linear Double Bass Shuffle Concept” in 2000; he is also the author of several instructional drum books, The Melodic Linear Drum Method, The Ultimate Reading Workbook, The Ultimate Drumset Workbook and The Ultimate Double Bass Workbook. Writing a monthly drum column for the Tambalaya magazine, he has also been featured in Modern Drummer and DRUM! Magazines.
In 2004, Rory recorded with Nocturnal Records artist Fall From Eden, a punk rock act produced by Dave Fortman. Fall From Eden had several songs featured on MTV’s Road Rules/ Real World Challenge T.V. show.
Rory had the pleasure of playing drums on two of Charlotte Church’s releases, Tissues and Issues, released on Sony Records and The Passion, songs inspired by The Passion of Christ, released on Windup Records.
He also works closely with famed producer Dave Fortman fine-tuning drums for some major record companies. Some of the artists have been Sterofuse, 12 Stones, Biff Naked, Charlotte Church, Mudvayne, Otep, Simple Plan and Evanescence.
Over the years, Rory has had a chance to open shows with some of the biggest names in the business, including Gatemouth Brown, David Allen Coe, Charlie Daniels, Black Oak Arkanasas, Marshall Tucker, Dixie All-stars, Travis Tritt, Slaughter, Survivor, Quiet Riot, Blue Oyster Cult, Blessed Union of Souls, The Misfits, Vince Neil, Social Burn, Dokken, Days of the New, Judas Priest, Flaw and 3 Doors Down (a band which had one of his former drum students as their drummer). He has appeared on countless recording sessions, T.V. shows and radio broadcasts, even playing a show at the Atlanta Falcons vs Carolina Panthers NFL football game for 72,000 football fans. Pushing the envelope even further, he now lives in Nashville, TN where he is pursuing a career as a Nashville session drummer. Since arriving in Nashville, Rory has worked with such famed producers as Bil Vorndick (Allison Krauss, Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Bela Fleck And The Flecktones) and Malcolm Springer (Matchbox 20, Collective Soul, Spiderman Soundtrack).

Studio Drum Tracks are now available from Rory Faciane

Individual mono drum tracks include: 1, 2 or 3 kick tracks (kick in, kick out and sub kick) 2 snare
tracks (top snare and bottom snare) 2, 3 or 4 tom tracks, individual cymbal tracks (hi hat, crash, ride,
splash and china tracks). Individual stereo tracks include: overhead stereo track and 2 sets of stereo
room tracks set future apart for distance and slap back. Also i have a wide variety of percussion that can
be used and tracked in the same fashion as the drum tracks. Drum tracks will be sent dry and flat with no
effects unless otherwise noted.

Getting started

Email an MP3 of your song to me, so we can communicate on what direction will be taken on your tune.

* Export a stereo .WAV Broadcast wav file or any mono tracks I will need to play long to. Tell me the
tempo marking as well . I find .wav files work best but a mp3 will work too.

* You can send me as many instruments as you want but I can get the job done with the above
tracks. Also PLEASE state what bit rate you want your files at. The usual rate is 24bit-44K . But let
me know prior so I can set up my recordings to fit.

* I like to keep communications open so I can give you exactly what you want on your song.

* Once we have agreed on the final tracks, I'll upload and send you the files via the internet or mail a
DVD of your session files.

* The overall system of sending files back an forth has really come along way so it's really very easy
and most recording systems( Nuendo, Pro Tools , and all others) seem to work just fine.

* VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure you export your tracks at zero dB and from the beginning of
the song to the end, just like it appears on your computer

* After the drum tracks are finished, I will email you an MP3 of the tracks in a mix. You will
review the track, approve or make adjustments where needed. Upon approval of the drum
tracks, the payment will be due on the tracks, I will send out the tracks to you on a data CD
or upload your tracks via the internet for you to import into your system.
