Emily Booher on SoundBetter

I’ve recorded for artists such as Fiona Apple, Midland, members of the Dixie Chicks, Ximena Sariñana (MX), The Vaccines and more. Most of my recordings have been done at Sonic Ranch Recording Studios.

I’ve been recording and working in studios for 7 years. The main one being Sonic Ranch studios near El Paso, TX. I’ve recorded on countless sessions, specializing in cello improv and part writing on the spot.I recently graduated with a degree in music from Southwestern University where I not only played cello, but composed works for myself and my own projects. I’ve worked with artists such as Ximena Sariñana (MX), Kalimba (MX), Fiona Apple, Midland, members of Hanson & the Dixie Chicks and many others. I am currently working on string arrangements with the up and coming artist, Carmen Ruiz who has played with people such as Natalia Lafourcade and Julieta Venegas. I also play live shows- a few highlights would be the BMI Latin SXSW showcase (2015), and the sold out Teatro Metropolitan show with Allison for a live DVD (2017).

  1. Review by Michel Riecken

    High recommendations!

  2. Review by INTHARA Studio

    Emily was a pleasure to work with. Her composition worked so well with my track and the recording was pristine!

  3. Review by David H.

    Emily was so awesome to work with! She's as nice a person as she is talented, and that's quite a lot. She's also incredibly patient. Emily created some spectacularly beautiful cello lines for my song, and now it feels complete. It was an absolute honor to work with her, and I hope we get to do it again in the near future!

  4. Review by Nico J.

    Amazing and so fast! I highly recommend, very professional and highest service and quality

  5. Review by Esteban Vázquez

    Emily is a great musician, very professional and open to try different things other than classical cello pieces, that really comes in handy for contemporary music producers, great attitude as well.

  6. Review by Paul Castillo

    Amazing work. She understands what music needs and offers unique sounds and ideas. She delivers at every session.

Interview with Emily Booher

  1. Q: How would you describe your style?

  2. A: My style is very lyrical. If I'm playing with a band or artist, I usually gravitate towards complimenting the vocal or guitar parts. I love that cello has its own distinct voice, and a wide range for showing it off.

  3. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  4. A: I record most of my cello parts on the spot just by improv. If I'm in the studio, I love bouncing musical ideas back and forth with the artist or producer. For me recording is more special when it isn't from a piece of sheet music.
