Sasha Ostrovsky on SoundBetter

Professional dobro, steel guitar, lap steel, etc.- slide overdubs, from a Grammy nominated musician. Also some banjo and acoustic guitar. 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, 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 and more.

For the last 8+ 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, Tommy Thayer (KISS), Luke Bryan, Brooks & Dunn, Brad Paisley and many more.

I record in 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 or may not work), tempo, recording specs (like 24bit/48kHz)
If possible: number or chord charts, any notes and audio/video references.

I'm always open for discussion and suggestions.

    Sasha is very professional and skilled. He has managed to give my compositions the final cream. Not too little, not too much. Just right. And then he is super nice and communicates clearly. 5 out of 5 stars for Sasha.

    Sasha is amazingly skilled and professional. Super communication. His steel guitar track was perfect in the first attempt and delivered very fast. We are already collaborating on the next project.

    Sasha is incredibly talented, and a pleasure to work with. He's always willing to listen to your needs (even for insanely weird projects, such as western-inspired EDM, haha) and work with you to create the best song possible. I can't recommend him enough!

    It was a great pleasure working with Sasha (fast delivery, valuable creative input, great recordings, thoughtful communication, etc.) and his input was exactly what we needed for our song. 10/10, I couldn’t have asked for more!

    Sasha is a true professional in every sense of the word. Not only did he record a dobro and steel guitar track that were perfect for the song, he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Great communication and quick turnaround. Can't recommend Sasha enough!

    Sasha did an amazing job on my tracks. His turn-around time was fast and his playing was tasteful, dynamic and masterfully played. Sasha was easy to communicate with and he seems like a super great guy. Thank you so much Sasha.

    I've used Sasha on tracks (both email and in person) for years. If I want playlist options, that's what I get - if I want comps, that's what he gives me. He's a pro's pro and your songs will be better if you hire him.
