Susie Winkworth on SoundBetter

Arranger and composer, strings specialist, and cellist. With 20+ years' experience as a session musician and string arranger in London, I write instrumental arrangements that add depth and magic to your track. Previous projects have been listed in The Times Culture Top 100 Albums, promoted Sony movies and showcased Classic FM chart-toppers.

I'm passionate about making every project a fantastic one and creating a great result for you. I take the time to understand exactly what you're imagining, and work independently to get a job done quickly.

I love transcription and can put what's in your head onto paper for efficient sessions with musicians. I produce detailed and clear scores and parts. I've worked in many styles - baroque, classical, opera, musical theatre, pop, jazz, folk, indie, rock, contemporary and commercial - and produce creative, flexible arrangements. I've helped both award-winners and up-and-coming singer-songwriters bring their vision to life, and I've got lots of ideas to help make your track shine.

I began as a cellist trained at the Royal Academy of Music - I've played with National Symphony Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia, Glenn Miller Orchestra, The Heritage Orchestra, Mary J Blige, Kanye West, Rod Stewart, Bryan May, Goldfrapp, Professor Green, Hayley Westenra, Katherine Jenkins, Alfie Boe, Willard White, Kiri Te Kanawa, the North Sea Radio Orchestra, John Greaves, Gilad Atzmon and more.

I bring all those sound-worlds to my writing, as well as many contacts with musicians who can provide remote recordings of the highest quality.

    Susie is doing a fabulous job on our project. The first string arrangement she did for us lifted the track to a whole new dimension, not only harmonically but emotionally. We are very excited about the next tracks she’s going to arrange. She’s extremely professional and very easy to communicate with when it comes to exchanging ideas and concepts. All in all the perfect choice for us:) A big thanks to the SoundBetter crew for connecting us.
