Lizz on SoundBetter

Improvising, Jazz influenced violinist. Classically trained at the Academy of London. Performed live and in session work for many artists including Richard Hawley, Newton Faulkner, Peter Gabriel and Smokey Robinson. I love to create solo violin lines or quartet arrangements for singer songwriters. I can record from home in garageband.

I can provide or read dots for string parts, or improvise over an instrumental solo section. I have worked with many singer songwriters over the last 20 years as well as performing as part of touring bands. I have regularly recorded sessions in studios such as Yellow Arch - Sheffield and Real World - Bath. I work independently or with other musicians and love collaborating and creating a specific sound for an artist that suits them and the song.
A full album example of my work with this kind of character in mind is Bitter Ruin - Brighton, 'Waves'. Here I wrote and recorded 4 part harmonies on violin and viola to create a full string section sound.
I am happy to write and record from home and send high quality files using good quality condenser microphones (usually ambient and close).

    I'd been hoping to work with Lizz for a number of years after hearing her at a local gig. Finally a project came up! I asked for contributions to three separate sections on a long form progressive rock piece.

    Technically: the files I got back were very well recorded, clean, plenty of headroom, & in the format/samplerate requested.
    Artistically: just beautiful, exceeded expectations, & will have added a lot to the final track when completed.
    Professionally: extremely easy to work with, understood the brief. A small issue was resolved quickly.

    Already looking to work with her again.

    Lizz is an exceptionally gifted and intuitive violinist, arranger and composer. She is always delightful company, a consumate professional and full of bright, optomistic energy, charm and grace. I LOVE working with Lizz, as do all the JT Band. We are very lucky to have her on board.
