Musical Accompaniment for Solo Artists
One of the main music production services people come to me for is help with instrumentation on their songs/tracks. Solo artists (singers, songwriters and composers) can achieve a lot working on their software platforms using plug-ins and samples etc., but sometimes there is no substitute for real instruments, or combinations of programmed and real instruments.
Professional musical accompaniment can make all the difference between a good demo recording and a great music production. With a background as a session guitarist and arranger, I also play rhythm section parts – guitars, bass and drums and sometimes keyboards. Beyond this, where budget allows I also use expert session musicians on a huge range of instruments.
Artists are sometimes concerned that they may not want me, or studio musicians I work with, to influence their ideas. Being a songwriter myself I fully understand and am sensitive to this.
