I’m Simon Treasure – a London-based freelance musician, specialising in drums but also offering electronics, guitar, musical direction and programming. Since graduating from the Academy of Contemporary Music in 2012 and receiving their ‘Outstanding Student Of The Year’ award, I’ve built up a diverse list of credits and a reputation for consistently delivering a solid pocket and creative sound. I use Istanbul Agop cymbals.

I’m available for remote drum sessions from The Factory Studios, just outside London. My recording experience includes some of the UK’s finest studios (AIR, Livingston, LA Sound, Toy Room, 123 etc.), working with producers such as Mike Rowe (Noel Gallagher, Sheryl Crow, Mick Jagger), Andy Britton (Amy McDonald, Baby Strange) and Chris Hewitt (Newton Faulkner, Calvin Harris). I’ve delivered drum tracks to clients all over the world, including the USA, Australia, Hong Kong and Brazil. Songs featuring my drums tracked remotely have been mixed and mastered at top facilities like Abbey Road and Metropolis Studios, and have gone on to receive BBC and international airplay as well as over 3 million streams.
