The Grime Violinist on SoundBetter

I write and play violin for grime, afrobeat, pop, hiphop, soul and other non-classical music. I'm a one-off.

Tanya Cracknell is The Grime Violinist. She collaborates with MCs and producers in the grime scene as a writer and recording artist, as well as performing for music videos, brand collaborations and live shows.

TGV has appeared in music videos with Lethal Bizzle, D Double E, JME, P Money, Maxwell D, Asher D, Young Tribez and many more. She has performed live with artists including Giggs, Mr Eazi, Lowkey, Fazer, Lady Lykes and Lioness.

TGV has performed around the world at festivals such as Glastonbury, Wireless, Wilderness and Boomtown, at venues including The Royal Albert Hall, Southbank Centre, Koko, Roundhouse and Hammersmith Apollo, plus appearances on BBC, ITV, SBTV and Channel 4 on the Big Narstie Show.

TGV also performs for private events. Clients have included Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel and former England footballer Eniola Aluko. Recent brand collaborations include Vodaphone, Coca-Cola, BooHoo, and Ellesse.

As well as her solo performing career, TGV writes strings for other genres including pop, chart, afrobeat, soul, film, house and hiphop. Improvisation combined with classical training ensures the best result in any studio session.
