Session cellist with a professional studio set up ready to add depth and emotive sounds to your songs. Last year I toured extensively with producer Giorgio Moroder. I have a wide variety of recording experience, from traditionally classical, to pop, disco, afrobeat and folk. I can improvise and write parts for your songs, just tell me the vibe!

In 2019 as well as working with Giorgio Moroder I also had the privilege to work with Trevor Horn, Beverley Knight and Pete Tong, but to name a few.
I also recorded recently on Roger O'Donnell's (The Cure) new upcoming album.

I have recorded for many TV/Film catalogues and I recorded the music for David Attenborough's series Dynasties, as well as having a creative input in the process.

I have recorded for Dua Lipa, JHus, and appeared live on BBC1 Live Lounge with Yungblud, and BB1 with The Vamps and on Femi Temowo's Afrobeat album 'Music is the Feeling.'

I can offer Cello arrangements for your track, or initial improvised ideas before the final recording.
Or send me a score and the track and I can record straight away!

I would be recording with and two stereo microphones plus a close Condenser microphone.

I have a diverse musical background, having been a member of several bands. However I trained Classically on Cello for 6 years at Conservatoires, obtaining a Masters in Music Performance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London in 2013.

    Miriam played my cello part beautifully, and supplied excellent recordings well within the deadline. I will definitely come to her again for remote cello session work!

  2. Review by Gunnar S.

    This was my second collaboration with Miriam. I was totally blown away by the crystal clear sound, creativity and passion that she delivered back at our first collaboration but this time she even exceeded. I am beyond happy by the quality, pristine sound and professionalism she puts into every job. I have goose bumps listening to her cello and I am looking forward to many more collaborations! I highly recommend her and I am so glad I have found her here. Thank you!

    Miriam has done an excellent job, she exceeded my expectations and composed and recorded a wonderful cello part for my piano piece. I will work with her again in the future for sure. Recommended!

    Miriam is an amazing cellist that goes the extra mile to get it done. She also created an experimental track full of creativity and amazing ideas on top of what I was looking for. The quality is crystal clear and gives you extra goosebumps. Highly recommended!
