I’ve followed Mike’s recordings and drum work for quite a while now…The great thing about Mike is his adaptability. If you need pocket solid drumming, he’s as solid as anyone I’ve heard anywhere. He plays with soul and passion and has that “IT” factor you want a drummer to have. Mr. Fields is easy to work with and gives you EXACTLY what YOU want!
