    Natalie is very easy to work with and she will go out of her way to give you a fantastic, profesional recording. We used her for our recent album and we are incredibly pleased with the results. We hope to work with her again on our next album.

    Natalie is a top professional who has arranged and been involved in many recording sessions here at Parr Street Studios. She is my first call for all things strings! :)
