I was recently contacted by a fellow in Round Rock, TX who asked me if I do recording work. If you're looking for fiddle on your album, I'm your guy!
I've done quite a bit of recording over the last decade or so. A few of the albums I've recorded on are:
The Devil Makes Three - "Do Wrong Right" (studio) and "Stomp and Smash" (live)
Rita Hosking - "Burn" and "Silver Stream" (studio)
The West Nile Ramblers - "Honkabilly Western Garage" and "Western Garage & Country Noir" (studio/live)
I've worked in all sorts of recording environments and am really comfortable with the whole process. I'm set up to do "mail-order" sessions from home and get a really good sound from that. I also have connections to folks with studios in Austin if you're looking for a super high-quality recording using fancier preamps, mics, etc. That would cost more, of course, and doing that would be dependent on your needs.
My current home setup consists of an M-Audio 410 Firewire interface, Logic Pro 7, and a Shure SM-81 condenser microphone. If that doesn't mean much to you, just trust me when I say it sounds good. I'll try to post some audio samples soon.
I'm comfortable with writing and improvising my own part or playing an already-composed part. If you're looking for someone to record some fiddle or violin parts on your next record call or shoot me an email!
