I highly recommend the very talented Annie Leeth. I simply sent her the chord sheets and lyrics for our next music single and waited a few days.
Annie crafted the perfect string accompaniment to elevate our song (Light Up My Life-The Austens) to the next level. Don’t take my word for it. Check out the results in the music video link below:
I definitely will be using her again in the future.
I highly recommend Annie and love her work. She has worked on multiple songs of mine and I plan to hire her again in upcoming projects.
Interview with Annie Leeth
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I'm really proud of Maximo Park's "Nature Always Wins", for which I engineered as well as arranged and recorded strings. It was made right when the pandemic began, so we had to deal with all of the challenges of working on a primarily remote album. The experience left me feeling both resilient and fulfilled musically!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: It depends on the situation, I think! I've found that different genres tend to thrive in each. That being said, I came up in a hybrid studio, and have always felt comforted by analog gear. In a perfect world, everyone would have access to both, but technology has come so far that you can still get a great result no matter what.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I most commonly add layered string sections to songs that need a bit of an emotional push. I love creating lush, layered, large-sounding string sections as an affordable, real alternative to software strings.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Laurie Anderson, Andrew Bird, and Kishi Bashi come to mind. I love when I feel immersed in an album, where it's difficult to passively listen. These artists always do that for me!
