About Edwin McLachlan

Edinburgh-based drummer and audio engineer, with 10+ years of session and touring experience.
Drummer
Edinburgh

I've been obsessively writing, performing and producing music since I bought my first MIDI keyboard aged 15. I began playing drums in bands in 2008, and have never stopped; I have since had the privilege of playing hundreds of shows, and on dozens of records. From international touring to BBC live sessions, and from basement free improv to meticulous professional studio sessions, I have a wide range of experience spanning all kinds of genres and projects. Let's make some art. [As of 2020, I offer remote session drumming services, where I can record drums for your project and send you edited mix-ready multitracks. Just ask me for more details!] www.edwinmclachlan.com

Kapil S, 1 year ago

Edwin arranged & performed live drums for a full band performance of my music for both festival and UK tour dates across 2018/19. Despite my music being written for only guitar and sequenced percussion, Edwin was able to seamlessly translate the feel of the songs to an acoustic-kit environment while maintaining the rigorous timekeeping required of such a task. The quality of his playing has earned him a place in my live band for a number of festival performances in North America / EU and UK in 2020.
