The Jones Thing - Dallas, TX

After pouring through tons of drummers on this site and others, I chose Darrell. Trust these reviews and ratings - he earned every star. His parts were perfect for my project which had a wide variety of styles.


Keyboards for The Moody Blues, John Lodge and Alan Hewitt & One Nation

Darrell is a badass drummer !!! He is so accurate with his stick placement which of course creates great sound. He can play the tightest groove to a huge Rock song with ease. If you want "the machine" for your session, he’s the Man!!!

"Another FANTASTIC Session !! Darrell never lets me down."


San Fransisco Based Neo-Funk Duo

"We're so glad Darrell accepted to record the drums for our new song. We had some pretty intricate funk-ish/rock MIDI drums that we manually tweaked for hours and we needed the human touch and groove on it. Darrell learned it, added his magic, respected all our extensive instructions and the result is simply amazing. He was spot on in just one pass!"

"Darrell Nutt saved my life. My first recording project had not been going in the direction I wanted it to. After hearing what Darrell could do with my unfinished material, I was sold on being his client from that point forward. He brilliantly mixed, mastered, and managed the release of my EP, Here I Am. Without him, I wouldn't have ended up with a product anywhere near as professional. Since then, we have recorded numerous songs together and plan for a full-length release soon. He has played an integral part of my music career!"
