Instrumentalist, Arranger

Jess Stroup on SoundBetter

Do you need help filling out your tracks? Need a tasty guitar part, bass line, some percussion or electronic elements? I can come up with parts and arrangements to help take your track to the next level. Or I can just play what you have in mind. Vocal or instrumental music.

I'm a composer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist. As a composer, I've scored indie films and documentaries like the Sundance select Camp X-Ray. As an arranger and musician, I've worked for composers on blockbuster films such as the Horrible Bosses and Ride Along movies, as well as network TV shows like Scorpion and The Bachelor.

I play acoustic and electric guitar, bass, mandolin, as well as some keys. I have a large collection of vintage guitars and amps, nice mics, and lots of plug-ins and virtual instruments for electronic or more diverse sounds.

I love working on all types of music but my specialties are rock, indie rock, acoustic, americana, and electronic. If you have a vocal track that you need help filling out, I can come up with parts. If you have an instrumental track or scoring cue and need help arranging or filling it out, I do that too. Or if you just want a bass part, a simple guitar line, acoustic guitar etc, I can do that as well. I think more in the indie world, and am not afraid to get experimental or weird if that's asked for.

I love collaborating, am always receptive to feedback, and easy to work with. While I can mix, there are better mixers on this site, so I would rather just provide you with elements and instrumentalist work.
