I compose, arrange, record and mix the ultimate horn section for your song. This includes multi layering tracks of each instrument to give it the brass power your song deserves!

I live in Berlin as a Trumpet, trombone and flugelhorn player while also recording horn sections in my very own music studio. I record brass for artists, bands, films and advertisements while performing and touring with various established musicians. These include Vance Joy, P!nk, Tash Sultana, Grouch, Tijuana Cartel and The Seven Ups. I can arrange and record in many different styles, and have had great experience in the past in funk, afro beat, folk/ pop, jazz, hip hop and more.

What I offer;
Trumpet/ Flugelhorn only - $70 per track

Trumpet/ Trombone/ Flugelhorn - $120 per track

Trumpet/ Trombone/ Flugelhorn/ Alto and Tenor saxophone - $200

I am also able to mix the horns in post for an additional - $100

After agreeing to the number of horns you would like, I would then compose a midi version of a horn arrangement to then send to you and see if it is to your liking. Once confirmed, I will then process to record the parts and send them to you stereo, unmixed. If you would like them mixed I am also able to do as well.

I can also perform the task quickly if needed, within 3 - 4 days if requested. Feel free to write to me if you might have any questions or requests.

  1. Review by Chris K.

    Kelly did an amazing job creating very tasteful, intricate and moving horn sections for my songs. She got the vibe exactly right. I'd definitely love to work with her again!

  2. Review by Matthias L.

    Kelly recorded and arranged trombone tracks for our acoustic pop project. She is fast, accurate and very responsive. We can 100% recommend her.

  3. Review by Kwun P.

    Kelly is an amazing multi-instrumentalist and one-person horn section! We added a full horn section to a project we’d started working on previously, and the sound was incredible. Really well composed, performed and recorded - melodic and inventive. Again I would highly recommend Kelly.
    Very easy to work with, super quick turnaround and highly professional. Thanks again!

  4. Review by Kwun P.

    I had a great experience working with Kelly. Very professional, she provided some great sounding improvised trumpet solos and trumpet lines, with view to adding a horn section to later. Kelly is very responsive, offering a quick turnaround and was extremely accommodating schedule-wise. I would highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again. Thanks Kelly!

  8. Review by Ethan Day

    Kelly is next level. We gave her complete control of all the horn parts in our song. She killed it; couldn't have asked for a better job!
    We definitely recommend
