Lush pedal steel tracks!

Don't you love the classic sound of a pedal steel? I do. It can enhance a song in a way that no other instrument can quite match. Regardless of the genre, pedal steel can make a huge difference with the right player. My main objective is to serve the song, and deliver a beautifully played and great quality sounding steel, dobro, or guitar part that will bring your song or soundtrack to the next level and make it a super easy process.

I have top quality instruments at my disposal and the recording capability to send you a part that will fit perfectly into your project. I have a guarantee for all of my work and there is zero risk on your end by giving me a try. If you aren't happy for whatever reason, you'll be issued a refund (it would be a first!).

I will typically include one initial track and send it over as a REF track for approval. My main priority is for you to have exactly what you want, so if there's anything you'd like to hear differently, I will be happy to make any changes needed for the end result to be exactly what you imagined. I can't wait to collaborate with you! Here's a list of some of my gear--

Williams S10 Pedal Steel
MSA Legend XL D10 Pedal Steel
1968 Supro Airliner Console Lap Steel
Wechter Scheerhorn Resophonic Guitar
Martin D18
Custom Strat

  1. Review by Greg P.

    Zena was excellent! They were extremely professional and extremely fast. Their Pedal Steel playing was also phenomenal, exactly what my song needed. I highly recommend hiring Zena for all of your Pedal Steel needs.

    I recently hired Zena to play both pedal steel and guitar on my record. When I say Zena is one of the most talented musicians I know, I mean it will my full heart. They were highly professional, their musical ideas are bright and intuitive, and they delivered a quick result. 10/10 would recommend Zena for all of your pedal steel needs!

  3. Review by Silent Partner

    We sent Zena a number of songs that needed some spicing up and couldn't be happier! Great pedal steel solos, tasteful background ambiance, all well-recorded and done quickly. Since this was done remotely, I expected to go back with revisions/suggestions but everything was so great on the first pass I used it all. Highly recommended!

    I came across Zena while we were both working on a big production for theater concert in downtown Philadelphia. Zena was playing in a different ensemble but when I saw them performing I knew I needed to find a way to get them involved in the project I was working on. Since then, Zena has been a dedicated and innovative member of the band I put together consisting of a variety of great Philly session players. Zena can do it all; the classic country lines, western swing, as well as experimental and adventurous playing if the tune calls for it. Zena would be welcomed addition to any project.

    I've collaborated with Zena in a variety of musical situations over the years -- on stages small and large throughout New York and Europe, in rehearsal studios, and remotely in pandemic-times-studio mode. & I can honestly say that Zena is one of the very most skilled, thoughtful, and multifaceted musicians I know. Whether it's a live gig or a studio gig, you can count on Zena to exceed your expectations!
