  4. Review by Paul C.

    Amber created a beautiful cello track for my acoustic ballade "You're Beautiful." She is a very talented, creative, and skilled artist. What I like the most about working with Amber is her ability to translate my simple, non-cellist guide track into a wonderful counter-melody, which enhanced the song by breathing life into it. Her high-end acoustic cello specially designed by David Wiebe has amazing tone and texture.
    Here's the video for that song:

    We've only started working with Amber. She is professional, passionate and her playing is outstanding.
    When doing film score work there is a need to have personality, and she brings that to the table, ten-fold.
    Highly recommended.

    Amber has been my go-to session and live player for a number of years.
    She's a highly skilled cellist with a sensibility and expression that really enhances all of my productions for pop music and film scores alike. She's easy to work with and can, on top of working with prepared sheet music, easily interpret even the most basic written notations or play by ear and bring your melody to life.
