Sasha Ostrovsky on SoundBetter

Professional dobro, steel guitar, lap steel, etc.- slide overdubs, from a Grammy nominated musician. Also some banjo, acoustic guitar, ukulele and Russian balalaika. Any style and genre- from bluegrass to rock to fusion.

I have been working in Nashville for the past 20 years- at first with my Grammy nominated band Bering Strait, then with multiple artists live on tour and in the studio. In these settings I have worked with Darius Rucker, Keith Urban, Sugarland, Pat Green, Clint Black, James Otto, Lady Antebellum, etc., performed on TV programs such as Today, Good Morning America, Ellen, American Idol, the ACM, CMT and CMA Awards, night shows with Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and more.

For the last 13 years I have been a part of Darius Rucker's band, touring the world, doing TV performances, Award shows, studio work. In Darius Rucker's collaborations with other artists our band backed up Sheryl Crow, John Oats (Hall & Oats), Kenny Rogers, Charlie Pride, Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Jelly Roll, Tommy Thayer (KISS), Luke Bryan, Brooks & Dunn, Brad Paisley, Hardy and many more.

I record in Logic (sometimes Pro-Tools) and send you a WAV file. In some cases if there's a need for multiple instruments and/or it may take a lot more time to accomplish a very specific request my rate could change based on the agreement with the client.

Please provide: recording track in .WAV format (MP3 may also work), tempo, recording specs (bit/kHz)
If possible: number or chord charts, any notes and audio/video references.

I'm always open for discussion and suggestions.

    Sasha was great. Very fast, efficient, and most of all creative. He advised which instrument from his arsenal, going with a steel, and worked his magic. Highly recommended, a real pro.

    I always enjoy working with Sasha. The parts he played were perfect for the project and high quality. Fast turnaround, very responsive, and delivered high quality files. We did not even need to do any revisions. Highly recommend and I look forward to our next project together!

    Solid dobro parts and pedal steel! Speedy response and great at accomplishing the task at hand by matching what I requested! I wish there was a way to give four and a half stars cause he deserves it. I'll be using him again for sure.
