Daniel Cardoso is a proliferous drummer and record producer, hailing from sunny Portugal.

He is best known as the drummer in the British progressive-rock band Anathema, where he also played keyboards for a while before switching to his instrument of choice: the drums.

With Anathema Daniel has played hundreds of shows all around the world, most notably having played on stage with the late professor Stephen Hawking in a once-in-a-lifetime performance at the Starmus festival in Tenerife.

Daniel also played a key part on the acclaimed album Murder Nature by Head Control System where he recorded not only drums, but all the instruments.

At his own studios (UltraSoundStudios / öhme Studios) Daniel has recorded session drums for countless artists and bands, as well as fully produced, mixed or mastered several records.

What about Daniel’s first drumkit ever? A 90’s Pearl Session Series. Little did he know that one day he would become part of the Pearl family.
