Matt Chamberlain – On How Life Is

Matt Chamberlain is helluva guy. This tiny link proves it beyond doubt. He is one of the few drummers to actually carry a signature sound and that’s why he served as the go-to guy for pop/rock producers for almost two decades now.

One of his best works is Macy Gray’s debut album, On How Life Is released in 1999. All the songs in there have pretty much the same chilled mid-tempo feel but that doesn’t count as a bad attribute.

It’ s the drumming that keeps the whole record together as a whole but at the same time sets every song apart in a very unique way. Mixed with loops and percussion layers, Matt Chamberlain’s amazing touch shines through.
