Classical violinist gone rogue, I graduated from Oberlin Conservatory, have toured internationally across the US, Brazil, U.K., France and Italy and performed twice at Carnegie Hall. I specialize in soundscapes/textures, improvised melodies, string harmonies, and virtuosic shredding with effect pedals.
ABOUT ME: I have 25 years of experience performing and 10 years experience recording in almost every genre from classical to metal and hard rock.
MY SOUND: I record using two different violin set-ups.
Set-up 1: My first violin has a completely acoustic set-up with a one-piece back violin from Philadelphia made in the early 1900's, warm and rich tones often used with singer/song writer/folk/blues/classical tracks.
Set-up 1: My second violin is rigged with a pick-up designed by Eric Aceto in NY that is installed in the bridge itself for a clean, warm signal which I can run through a variety of amps/effect pedals and that I use for the majority of my performing. I love finding new combinations of distortion and delay to emulate other instruments entirely, especially lead guitar lines. I also use a variety of octave pedals that gives me the flexibility to sound like a bass or cello, whether it be melodic lines or pizzicato bass figures.
RECORDING EXPERIENCE: I use AbeltonLive as my primary DAWS for both recording and performing. I have my own private studio which includes a variety of condenser and dynamic microphones. Because of the diversity of projects I've toured and performed with, I offer unique insight into tracking violin parts and love new challenges!
