John Culbreth

Session Trumpet Player

John Culbreth on SoundBetter

I'll write and record horn parts for any track. Artists I've worked with: Vance Joy, Griz, The Revivalists, Tank and the Bangas, Galactic, Delfeayo Marsalis, Es-K, Big Freedia, Naughty Professor and more.

I own a high quality recording chain and have a horn section I can call upon to incorporate more horns. Will write and record anything from huge funk section parts to chilled out solos. I love getting creative with it and always aim to best serve the song. I started out as a trumpet player for New Orleans instrumental collective Naughty Professor. I've been a studio session player since 2010 and have recorded on close to 100 tracks.

I've toured internationally as a trumpet player and have had the opportunity to perform live in front of hundreds of thousands of people.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
