Ivo Vollering on SoundBetter

Fingerstyle acoustic guitar and tasteful electric guitar playing. I love working on other artists songs by setting myself onto the journey of finding the right textures and sounds for them. It's enormous fun for me!

Ivo Vollering is a finger style guitar player from Berlin Germany. His instrumental music is a unique blend of ambient moods and traditional energetic finger picking.

Starting out with electric guitar in his early teens he set himself on a long musical journey from rock to jazz to country and finger style guitar.

Ivo's music has recently been added to the popular Spotify playlist "Acoustic Concentration".

    Ivo recorded lead acoustic guitar plus some electric guitar embellishments for a song we are working on. All we sent Ivo was the track with the lead vocal soloed, and Ivo delivered multiple takes with different approaches - all were nuanced, expressive and musical, and his mics and recording setup sounds amazing! We would definitely love to work with Ivo again in the future.
