Karl McCrone on SoundBetter

I'm a professional guitarist from Dublin, Ireland with 10+ years of touring, television and studio experience across the UK. Having worked on a wide variety of areas in the industry including MD, musical theatre, session work and bands, I approach everything with a wealth of knowledge and professionalism that can take your song to the next level!

I write and record commercial standard guitar parts that suit your song perfectly, I am also comfortable with sight reading and Nashville number system if you have the parts already written. The bands I have played with cover a wide range of genres such as pop, rock, soul and jazz. Personally I'm a big fan of soul, disco, RnB music and happy to sit in the groove and play what's best for the song! Tracks will be sent both with my own effects and the clean signal for your own mixing. Full list of equipment and guitars available on request, see the gear highlights section for some of my favourites.
You can also check out my instagram for a huge selection of my guitar videos.

A personal highlight is being the MD and guitarist for Irish boyband Taken for their UK tours.
I am also interested in collaborating on songs if we share a similar taste in music e.g. Prince, Snarky Puppy, Tom Misch, Vulfpeck, Parcels, Chic etc.

Aside from my guitar playing I am a sound designer for video games and commercials with a showreel available on request.

    Stellar experience. I had a track demo with ideas that were disorganized and random- Karl did an amazing job realizing the guitar track to its full potential. Playing and tone is professional and creative! Also gave me the luxury of like 5~6 tracks that I could work with

    I've worked with quite a few session players here on sound better, but seriously guys Karl is a steal. Order from him!

    Amazing Musician and very professional to work with. He was full to the brim with ideas and provided lush chords that brought the tracks to their full potential. Very professional and very creative.

    Can’t recommend Karl enough. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on a number of projects, including live performances, in studio work and remote recording. Karl is Incredibly talented and versatile and holds a strong dedicated work ethic. He’s very quick and easy to work with and is extremely organised when delivering material, giving multiple options to choose from. (With effects and clean) He’s well rounded being both very creative with his parts and great with theory. On top of all that he’s as sound as a pound and brings great energy into every room!

    It was a real pleasure to work with Karl on my latest release. He brought the track to life with a studio-level recording and fantastic feel. Quick and easy to talk with, thank you Karl!
