Kelly O'Donohue on SoundBetter

I can record trumpet, flugelhorn and trombone for you at a professional level, in all different styles. This can include funk, jazz, soul, rock and more. It can either be just a solo instrument track, or a full blown horn section, send me a message so we can create the perfect horns for your song!

I have over 20 years experience as a trumpet/ trombone/ flugelhorn player and live in Berlin, recording horn sections in my very own music studio. I have recorded brass for artists, bands, films, advertisements and video games. When I am not recording, I am performing and touring with various established musicians. These include Vance Joy, P!nk, Tash Sultana, Grouch, Ina Forsman, 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. Check out the works I have performed on in the soundcloud link below

    Working with Kelly is always a pleasure. She is an incredibly talented arranger and player. Her horns for my song were exactly what I was looking for.

    Kelly went the extra mile in so many ways. Absolutely nailed the trumpet i was looking for. The parts were composed expertly - i gave almost no direction and I was given solos and full sections across the song in all the right places. Highly recommend!

    I was really thinking a lot about how to describe Kelly's work: Really great tone, really super professionell, really super creative.
    I really would like to work with her again if there are another Trumpets or Horn sections on my next tracks. Great pleasure to work with her!

    Kelly is a truly professional performer and musician with a focus on very kind, attentive and flexible service. Kelly takes the direction perfectly and her overall performing and sound quality is so impactful! Minimizing the chance for revisions, saving valuable time.
    I enjoyed working with Kelly on numerous tracks ranging from Latin to Swing mischievous Jazz for production music including tv and advertising.
    I couldn't be more satisfied and would highly recommend working with Kelly.

    Kelly is a spectacular trombonist and collaborator! She totally nailed exactly what we needed and played with joy, style and tone. She was incredibly helpful every step of the way and even sent me little demos to make sure she was on the right page. If you need an awesome trombonist for any pop, r&b or gospel tune, I would highly recommend using Kelly!

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

    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!

    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!

    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
