Theo Hayes

Session Multi-Instrumentalist

Theo Hayes on SoundBetter

I will flesh out your basic arrangement into a fully realised, full band arrangement with bass, keys, guitar, and drums as you see fit. I can also just pull regular session duty - give me a part on any or all of these instruments and you'll get it played cleanly and professionally, however you want it to sound.

I'm classically trained as a pianist, but I write and perform mostly in jazz, rock and pop contexts. I've written, recorded and released 12 albums, on which I've played every single instrument, in genres ranging from punk to prog to jazz fusion to vintage motowny pop and back again.

Since I've written all my own arrangements, I'm very well versed in the process of taking the simplest core of the song up to a finished piece of music with all of the details it needs, regardless of genre.

Thanks to my classical training, I'm also very comfortable with the interpretation and recreation of parts, so if you have something in mind and just want it played note for note, or with a little flavouring, that's fine by me.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
