Buffi Jacobs on SoundBetter

Cellist of the indie rock group The Polyphonic Spree and current cellist of Hamilton National Tour (Philip Tour, LLC). Since 2005, I have worked consistently as a session cellist (in studio and remote recording) for recording engineers such as John Congleton, Matt Pence, Austin Jenkins, Josh Block, McKenzie Smith, Chris Bell and many more.

Things you should know about me:

In addition to being the cellist for The Polyphonic Spree and Hamilton National Tour(Philip Tour), I have worked as an orchestral and commercial music freelancer since 1996. A large portion of that has been composition and session work.

I am comfortable working in Finale (notation software) and recording in Logic Pro X. I am happy to record cello parts that you have written for me or I can compose one should you need a cello part, small or large string ensemble arrangement, or a full orchestral arrangement written.

My workflow begins by scheduling an initial consultation with the client to ensure that your creative needs, expectations and deadlines are fully understood. Then, I send you a price proposal. Once the estimate is approved, then we proceed to the creative process! I will first submit a "mock up" of the project for your review. Revisions are made as necessary. Once approved, we proceed to the tracking stage where I collect recording specs from your engineer and we begin tracking for your project. Should your project require more than just one cello, I have a vast network of exceptional musicians that I work with daily.

Clients find that I am honest, professional, friendly and very easy to work with. I take pride in making each collaboration a unique and positive experience.
