Heloise Lefebvre on SoundBetter

I love strings. From the moving tone of a violin solo to the stirring sound of full string ensembles. The range of emotion string instruments convey is boundless.

A classically trained violinist, I got into jazz at an early age. Honored to be selected from thousands as legendary jazz musician Didier Lockwood's prodigal student.

My career as a touring and recording violinist includes two critically acclaimed albums as a band-leader, collaborations with ECM artist Julia Hülsmann, and many others. I'm an accomplished composer & arranger who thrives on offering my skills on a broad range of projects.

Through dedication to my art I've gained substantial experience outside of the jazz world. I've collaborated with pop, folk, and country artists. Worked on top advertising campaigns, assisted with numerous film scores and world music projects. Whatever kind of music-project you're working on, I have the experience to help.

Every recording is performed live to the highest organic quality (no samples) in my Berlin home-studio. A meticulous, passionate approach ensures all my musical endeavors receive a distinctive touch of artistic personality.

Single violin melodies, multi-instrumental textures, or full string arrangements, I give my all to craft unique sonic-signatures to elevate your piece to the best it can be.

    Oh my God! Heloise is authentic, the real deal; masterful in composing, arranging, and then performing her work! She took my pop tune into the stratosphere vibe-wise. She is as pro as one can be, easy to work with, and perfectly organized in her delivery of the final strings, which makes life much easier on the import. HIGHLY recommend.

  5. Review by Michelle Daly

    Heloise composed a stunning string arrangement and violin and viola playing for my track. She is wonderfully talented and skilled musician and so easy to work with. She is extremely hard working and brings imagination and passion to every project she works on. I am also lucky to have her provide 2 beautiful string arrangements for tracks on my upcoming album. Highly recommend Heloise for both her composition and playing. Thank you

  7. Review by Chris Tschuggnall

    I had the pleasure to work with Héloïse on several projects and the experience was always fantastic.The communication is always smooth and very friendly and she always comes to sessions well prepared. Her violin playing, of course, is extraordinary and there is nothing left to do except put the recorded files into the project. On some projects, I also asked her to find a string quartet section for me for recording, which worked out perfectly. She has a great network of fantastic players and took care of all communications. I really can recommend working with Héloïse!
