David S. on SoundBetter

I am a professional freelance saxophonist and flautist located in NYC. I have years of experience in large event band settings, recoding sessions, and small group live performance. My playing is energetic, modern, and bold. While I can stand out, I can also blend in large groups, can write arrangements, and lead a section.

Hello everyone-

I'm offering an array of services:

Saxophone/flute recordings: I am a professional Jazz musician and I can quickly lay down a solo or arranged parts for any track you may have. I can make sure my playing lines up with the feel and style you have in mind and can use tenor, soprano or flute in layers to add depth and an ensemble sound.

Ableton Live: I can mix/master and produce original instrumental recordings for your tracks. I'm not big on obsessing about gear, so I'll let the tracks I post here speak for themselves.

    David was easy to work with and very professional. The project was done in a timely manner. He added in that missing element that was desperately needed to make my project sound complete. He mixed in his own ideas along with what i wanted. The perfect blend of saxophones and horns was put together well. I would highly recommend working with David again in the future.
