Hamilton Berry on SoundBetter

Hello! I'm cellist with the Grammy-nominated PUBLIQuartet. I've recorded for Vampire Weekend, arranged strings for Cults, and performed live with Bjork, Rostam, Debbie Harry, and Fun.

I enjoy recording cello and writing arrangements for all kinds of music - recent projects here on Soundbetter have included everything from soundtrack work to multi-track cello arrangements for singer-songwriters. My goal is to tailor my style and sound to your needs for a given project, whatever those may be.

I received my Master's degree from Juilliard, where I studied with Timothy Eddy.

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

    I was beyond thrilled when I received a string arrangement from Hamilton perfectly tailored to suit a soft acoustic song. Each layer was rich with various tones and textures that fold into each other and build to bring the song to a whole new plane.

    Hamilton created excellent cello tracks for my song. They were spot on in that they have exactly the right feel and were played with precision. It was just what I was looking for. I'd highly recommend him!

    It was a pleasure to work with Hamilton. His recordings had very emotive and deep tones which is exactly what I was looking for. He's very obliging and easy to work with. Would highly recommend!

    Hamilton was such a pleasure to work with. He's super professional & I was able to convey my ideas to him w/o any problems at all. The cello tracks are recorded perfectly and the end result sounds beautiful!! I'll definitely be working with him again.

    Hamilton is a master. I was after a particular tone in the playing and he totally nailed it. :)

    Simply put, Hamilton is the man. He has contributed his elegant and surgical magic to numerous commercial scores of mine and live performances. Being a composer & producer, it's a treat for me to have such a reliable, punctual, enthusiastic and extremely talented friend to call upon when in need of cello. Hamilton is the epitome of a professional.

    Hamilton is one of my favorite musicians. Every context in which he plays gets hugely elevated due to the quality and taste he brings. He's also a wonderful personality to have in the studio or on stage with you. When I need cello I don't even bother with anyone other than Hamilton.

    As a drummer, strong rhythm and groove are important to me. Particularly in low-end instruments. Hamilton grooves *really* hard. The part is always right, but it's also always GREAT. Get after him!
