Reviews of MariaGrig
Maria is truly gifted and knows how to interpret a song and arrange strings to fit the mood. She did a spectacular job on my song; and also provided high quality WAV files from two separate mics (a close mic and room mic) and she layered the strings to give me the mood I was wanting. Excellent service and most importantly, stellar musicianship.
Maria truly amazed me with the excellent work which she did in performing the string parts to my song. She interpreted and performed the parts with musicality and control. I did not expect to find a performer who would invest so much care and attention into my music given my budget, but Maria exceeded all such expectations.
Maria is an excellent writer and musician. I am so thrilled with the track that she recorded for our song. I hope to work with her again in the future and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone looking to add strings to a project.
MariaGrid is the best to help me working on my project. She provided violin idea with many options and willing to listen to my direction and requirement. I really enjoy to work with her and those violin melody she created helps a lot. If you looking to add string/violin to your project. Maria is the best one ! A+++ Thank you again MariaGrig!
An incredible musician. She really helped us get more out of the song! She's a pleasure to work with, great communicator, and very professional. HIGHLY recommend.
Maria is definitely a pro. I like her professionalism. Definitely come back for more
Will come back for more in future.
Maria is a very dedicated professional. Delivered with excellence and in time.
I definetly recommend her. I am very happy with her contribution to the song.
MariaGrig is a total pro. Beautiful tracks and great ideas. The recording quality was also excellent. Highly recommended.
Worked on 2 instrumentals with her so far, both turned out better than I could've hoped. Responsive and really fast. Another great experience.
Wanted some viola, violin parts for an electrnoc based song to make it sound totally unique and different. Maria delivered yet again and supplied more than I originally asked for, Maria always delivers and she never stops amazing me with the amount of work she does, can't wait for the next time.
Maria again performed great in my 2 song! It is the 2nd time I work with her and I am very impressed with her string quartet! It's not easy but she really have done an amazing job! She arranged the quartet for me and played beautifully!
You should work with her if you have no idea on how the string quartet will be like in your songs!
Maria is truly a star!
Her playing is powerful yet emotional.
She is skillful and her turnaround is fast!
Can't wait to start another job with her!
Maria has been a pleasure to work with. I contacted her for a cello track, and I ended up with an amazing cello + 3 violins high quality orchestration that set a wonderful touch to my song.
Hiring Maria is a no-brainer if you are looking for a professional musician to take your track to the next level!
Another awesome gig from Maria!
When it comes to string sessions musicians I have to admit she is the first person that comes in mind. Always doing a professional job in terms of playing and sound quality and always willing to make the extra step that will give you an even better result than the one you had in mind.
I was happy with the result ..I came to Maria just to add Cello and she even created a little violin section to enhance the emotions in the song ! She's very talented !Thanks U
Excellent! Maria delivered a flawless recording in terms of playing and sound quality. Took my ideas to the next step, I will definitely collaborate again with her!
Another incredible job by Maria who went above and beyond to give me a full orchestra for the most challenging song on my upcoming album. Will hire her again and again. A rare talent.
Exceptional as always - Trust her.
Once again, Maria went above and beyond bringing a simple but amazingly moving arrangement to a simple piano hymn. It might be the best song on the album now. Really pleased with her pathos and professionalism. Would use again in a heartbeat.
Maria is awesome to work with! Super happy with her violin + viola performance on my track, and she records her gorgeous sounding instruments extremely well. Not only that, but she provides options for the mix with her instrumentals. Highly recommended and will definitely use her services again.

Always a pleasure. Excited to continue working with her.
Maria really added finesse and beauty to my song and gave it the pathos is needed. She's meticulous and professional. Will definitely be using her in the future.
Went above & beyond for her part on my track. Looking forward to working with her on future projects.
With minimal input from me, Maria was able to record exactly what I needed and was open to any requests I had. Very skilled, amazing recording quality and good communication. Can't wait to work with her again.
Maria was brilliant to work with, very quick turnaround and respected any changes or amendments that I asked for, which wasn't many as first take was spot on and hope to work with her again on other tracks.
Nailed my composition, truly a 10/10 musician, thank you for being so talented !!
Absolutely amazing ! A very talented person and I cannot wait to work on another project and include her on it !
One of my favorite people to work with. Adds life and a certain charm to all of my music. A pleasure to collaborate with
