If you need someone with professional-level technique and award-winning chops for a modern sound, then I'm your cellist! I combine years of focused classical study on the cello with my experience as an electric guitarist and modern cellist to deliver stellar sounding results at an affordable price.
Visit my website to hear Demos at https://www.stevenschumann.com, my first song is free for all studios!
One of the reasons that strings are possibly the hardest instrument to synthesize beautifully is due to the deep technique and finesse required to make them sing! I am an award-winning classical cellist (Belle & Lynum Jackson award, 2019 1st Place) but importantly, I spend much of my time playing with modern bands on both the cello and on electric guitar. This means that I bring a fine level of technical effectiveness, and combine that with my ear for modern, radio-ready sounds. I am featured on the 2019 winner of the International Songwriting Competition in the Country Music category (Kate Pederson, The Landing) and have worked with producers from all over the U.S. and internationally. I regularly perform with groups of various genres, as well as my own folk trio Cypress. From part writing in the style of Bach, to soloing over changes, my wide exposure to many styles guarantees my tracks will sit well in the mix.
I record with high-grade equipment, including a Neumann Tlm 102, and an acoustically-treated room. My experience in the studio means that I am familiar with techniques which help a track mellow out or cut through accordingly. Book me today for a session for great sounding tracks and a quick turnaround!
