Luis Villalobos on SoundBetter

Hello, I am Bruce Springsteen's violinist. If you need the very best strings sound, look no further! My solos can be heard in his latest album "Western Stars". My string performances, compositions and arrangements, have been featured at the Latin Grammy's Special Awards Ceremony, and premiered in Carnegie Hall and with the San Francisco Symphony.

Hello everyone!

My name is Luis Villalobos and I will compose, arrange, perform, record or tune to perfection any string work that you need for your projects. Any genre is welcome, I hold two Master’s Degrees in classical and contemporary music production from the University of Freiburg in Germany and Berklee College of Music. You will receive the highest quality strings sound in the market, period! No project is too big or small. I will work with you with the same excitement and commitment as with the multi-Grammy-winners that have blessed my musical path (Bruce Springsteen, Dolly Parton, Antonio Sanchez, Arturo O’Farrill or Disney’s Dan Zanes). Whether it is an improvisation for one of your songs, a written arrangement for other performers, or a full recording session, I can make it happen with non-paralleled quality and elevate your project to the next level. With more than 30 years of experience as a professional violinist, I understand strings with incomparable depth. I am a professional composer and producer as well and will deliver ready-to-play tracks or raw files for integration in your project. If you like my work and are interested in my playing, I am available for concerts and touring anywhere in the world as well. Drop me a line and let’s get started, I am looking forward to making music with you!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    As a guitarist in many music styles, I can say that Luis Villalobos is one of the most interesting, multifaceted, and committed musicians I have known. Working along with Luis it has been always so rewarding in terms of professionalism, skills, and flexibility. I can rely on those characteristics at any musical situation, whether recording strings, live performances, arranging, or musical production. His wide knowledge about so many musical languages, from classical to world music, is perfect if you are looking for someone propositive and thought-flexible.

    I'm an electric bass player and composer. I hired Luis to write an arrangement for a piece of music of mine. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my compositions. I had heard his playing with his group the Villalobos Brothers and felt that he would be perfect for what I needed. I was exactly right! I couldn't have been happier with the work that Luis did for me, and for how he elevated my composition in a way that I couldn't have done myself. His string arrangement was not only beautiful, but it was creative, and it ended up feeling like it had always belonged there. Bravo, Luis!

    Luis Villalobos is a consummate professional and virtuoso of the violin! I hired him to play on an album of mine. I found him after listening to Bruce Springsteen's latest album and could not believe the beautiful violin playing on the record. I reached out to Luis and he provided me with excellent recommendations on the violin parts I had written, and he sent me back fantastic recordings of his playing. If you need a violinist hire him immediately!
