Fluent in many different styles, recently recorded Jazz flute tracks on "Parcels" debut EP on song including "Lighten Up"
I am an accomplished and polished professional flute player, equally comfortable reading difficult parts and improvising for tracks. I am able to record parts that you have written for your tracks including overdubbing, or write arranging and/or improvise over the tracks myself. You may have heard me most recently in the Parcels Track LightenUp https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQz5l55qtsY (The flute solo is towards the end of the track)
