For more than 20 years, Nir has been in demand with artists across all genres including Hunter Hayes, Jason Mraz, Chris Cornell, Blake Shelton, Joss Stone, Alana Davis, Wynonna Judd, and John Oates. Prior to his work on John Mayer’s breakthrough album, Room for Squares (yes that was Nir), Nir took Phil Collins’ seat behind the drum kit in the legendary band Genesis on their 1997 album Calling All Stations and the following European tour.
Though he moved from Israel to New York City in 1993, since 2010 Nir has rooted himself in Nashville, Tennessee where studio work with session peers continually keeps Nir’s sticks in hand and his contagious, energy flowing. Nir’s years of experience as a drummer and recording engineer are now put to good use in his personal studio complete with a rich, musical tracking room and outfitted with the best of the best gear. In addition to his drumming, his skill as a percussionist and a programmer are also on tap. In short, Nir gives you every rhythmic option you could ever want.
