About Brian Stephens

“Brian Stephens is an in-demand session and gigging drummer who proves that you don’t have to live in New York, Los Angeles, or Nashville to succeed.” – Modern Drummer magazine

For more than 25 years, I have been a professional drummer, audio engineer, music producer, writer, podcaster, serial entrepreneur, and a whole lot of other things.

I've made things for free and I've made things for pay. This is the first time I've decided to try this space as place to make things for people who, like me, love creating music, playing drums, recording audio, making videos, and learning more about it all.

If you'd like for me to make things to help you, teach you, entertain you, inspire you, and sometimes challenge you, please consider becoming a patron.

Patrons will receive bonus content like interview outtakes not aired on my podcasts, weekly livestreams where I teach and/or we talk, a special virtual seat into some of my studio sessions, and so much more!

Your patronage also allows me to put more time into recording & producing my podcasts, Dial-A-Drummer and Fader Jocks. With your help, the goal is to produce weekly podcast episodes and additional bonus content here for my patrons featuring the guests I interview for those shows.
