Kristin Weber on SoundBetter

String hooks are my passion. Credits: Dolly Parton, Cage the Elephant. Lush indie string section, fiddle lines, ripping bluegrass solo, string quartet, violin, viola, sweet/smokey female vocal.

30 years of background in classical and fiddling and Berklee graduate, over a decade as a Nashville session violinist. My experience ranges from writing lush indie string parts for records, touring with a grammy-nominated bluegrass band as a fiddler, performing in a string quartet with Lorde, playing on tracks for Lauryn Hill, recording in a symphony for movie soundtracks, touring as a singer and violinist with various bands. I can give you lush indie strings, a simple violin/fiddle line, a ripping bluegrass solo, string quartet arrangements, female vocals or anything else you can imagine. I can arrange for and hire experienced session cellists and other violinists and violists if you seek a duo, quartet or full string section sound.

My recording credits include: Dolly Parton, The Beach Boys, Little Big Town, Cage the Elephant, Roy Orbison, Midland, Margo Price, Brett Eldridge, Kelsea Ballerini, Burt Bacharach.

My performance credits include: Lorde, Cage The Elephant, Eminem, Carrie Underwood, Michael Buble, Kacey Musgraves, Evanescence, Augustana, Midland, Margo Price.

    Kristin brought my song to new amazing places without losing the original feel, I could not be more happy with the finished project! Kristin brought in her own lush and beautiful melodies and arrangements. I'm definitely interesting in working together more in the future!

    Kristin's playing is so beautiful! She delivers high quality tracks and for me, they're perfect on the first pass. I couldn't ask for more. I can't imagine going to anyone else for fiddle or violin. Thanks Kristin!

    This is the second song I have been lucky enough to have Kristin play on, And I'm not sure if I will ever arrange another song without her playing!
    Kristin brings life to any job, Be it thru violin, viola or fiddle. because its not the instrument or tool she uses, Her message in the music is exactly what the song is trying to say. She has the skills of a master, and we are so lucky to have the chance to work with her. Her listening skills are impeccable, and I cant say enough good about her🎻!!!

    Kristin not only has the ears of a masterful string musician, But she also has a ear for production that is some sort of hybrid between the musical IQ of Michael Jackson nd Bach. she has brought out the whisper of the violin and the depth of the cello. Her melodic arrangements are heartfelt and joyful. I don't always wright poetry when I review a pro but Kristins string's, brings out the poet in me, I guess:) Communication and patience might be the only thing better than her playing. USE KRSTIN!

    Kristin was easy to work with and incredibly collaborative on all that we asked for. We were looking for an intimate and emotional string section. She beautifully delivered and I cried when I first heard it.

    I don't know Kristin's views on baseball, but her latest efforts were a grand slam-- a no doubter as they say. Our piece was in the bottom of the ninth, but I couldn't seems to bring it home. Kristin's imaginative, soulful, skillful playing, and her desire to swing for the fences made the piece. She gets references to all types of violin styles- and can do it all. Can't wait to work with her again.

    Kristin brings a depth of character to any song she plays on. A professional who only makes any song she plays on better. Great.

    Kristin is an amazing talent. Very professional and so easy to work with. Her fiddle/violin work for my song was a beautiful addition.

    Wow. Kristin has the chops, is super responsive, plays and sings with enthusiasm and has great musical intuition and ability. We had a track that was kind of lingering in the 'not going to make it on the album' bin. We decided to see what she could add to it- and now it's going on the record. I can't wait to find another track for her to work on.

    Kristin delivered a wonderful job for me. Her playing is versatile, sensitive, and quite frankly, exquisite. Super-friendly with requests, she listened carefully and delivered exactly what was requested. Thoroughly recommended! Thanks so much, Kristin :)

    Kristin Weber is a truly brilliant string arranger and executor. She did the strings for my debut record 8 years ago—everything from rippin' fiddle solos to creating all of the parts for a string quartet, to sweeping orchestral strings—and she has been my go-to all-things-strings first choice ever since. I am constantly amazed by how her creative brain works. She seems to just pull these unique parts from thin air that just end up MAKING the song. I can't recommend her services highly enough!

    I hired Kristin to compose string arrangements and bring in string sections for our last studio album and she KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK! She is a great player, creative composer, professional, and a joy to work with, plus she can charm a sarcastic engineer. I trust her musical instinct and versatility. She complemented the vibe of each song ranging from symphonic soul on “Listen Sister”, cinematic romanticism on “Sally’s Gone”, quirky, fun, and energetic on “Fave Wave” and a rowdy fiddle solo on “Intervention”. She is a five star, must hire!

    Kristin is an absolute pro and a pleasure to work with. I hire her often for string work, and each time she delivers beautiful arrangements. Her sense of melody, counter melodies and harmony are such a joy to hear and sit so perfectly in each song. Hire her, you'll love it.

    Kristin is one of the most talented, professional, conscientious musicians I've worked with. She always devotes herself fully to any musical work in front of her. She's not only technically a highly skilled violinist, well versed in multiple genres and styles, she also has a beautifully creative voice which is heard in her arrangements and solos. Her violin playing feels akin to a human voice: emotionally and uniquely expressive in a way that is all her own. She's also a great harmony singer, finding the most fitting parts and matching her phrasing and tone to the lead singer.
