Rita was an amazing communicator and collaborator. She not only was able to deliver exactly what I needed quickly, but the strings were recorded beautifully as well.
I asked Rita to come up with her own parts, and the arrangement was fantastic and fit the song perfectly. If you need strings for your song, I can not recommend Rita enough.
Rita is a stellar performer, player, and person. She was so easy to work and communicate with, both as an individual and with her quartet, Atlys. I have had the good fortune to catch her string songs for about 8 pieces of original work. I cannot recommend them enough. For every track (ranging from simple folk to epic hip-hop) she was on point, dynamic, and solid. A total professional both in the studio and out of it, Rita is a master at what she does. Definite first choice of vio-voices.
If you're craving the sultry and sweet sound of the viola, Rita makes her instrument sing with pure soul like few others can! Versatile and well-versed in so many styles, there's nothing she can't play. Additionally, she has loads of experience improvising imaginative additions to your tracks, as well as writing arrangements, and is incredibly easy to work! Will hire again and again!
Beautiful big lush sound that takes any recording to the next level once Rita's playing on it! Highly recommend!
Rita can provide extremely imaginative arrangements and her sound and vibrato will breathe life into your music! She puts serious thought and work into each recording.
