The Lindale Project
"I have collaborated with Preston for 8 years both as a member of the band Distant Towers and within the confines of my own music engine, The Lindale Project. Preston brings a wealth of experience into his drum recording and engineering. He has a good ear for knowing what type of drum track a song needs, at the same time he has a willingness to listen to others. He truly wants his drums to be both his own creation and something that enhances the project he is working on. That is a very creative combination. I have enjoyed his friendship and being his bandmate but I have also learned many things from him as we worked together. It has been a rewarding collaboration and now others will have access to Preston and his considerable abilities."
