Drums and Percussion
Greetings, and welcome to my website!
My name is Patrick Carmichael, and I'm a New York based drummer/percussionist. Here on this website, you can hear samples of my drumming, watch a few videos, and read about some of the fun projects that I'm involved in. The latest big news, however, is the release of my latest album, Sanctuary. I have spent over 2 years making this album, utilizing the talents of more than 25 musicians, not to mention countless hours myself working with synthesizers, sample libraries, and computer production. I couldn't be happier with the final results, as making music on the level of what's represented on Sanctuary has been a lifelong ambition.

ON STAGE OR IN THE STUDIO
As a professional drummer for over 25 years, I've been blessed with the opportunity to travel around the world, playing a multitude of styles with many amazing artists. I bring this experience, along with my contagious positive vibe, to every project I get called for. In the studio, I have a meticulous work ethic of achieving just the right sound and vibe. Years of playing along to click tracks has refined my tightness and groove, and I take a lot of pride in everything I record.
Besides drumming, I write a lot of music, which is slowly becoming a bigger part of my artistic endeavors. Listen to samples of my compositions, including my amazing new album, Sanctuary.
