Annie Leeth on SoundBetter

Annie Leeth is a session violinist and engineer with credits by Faye Webster, Kishi Bashi, Erasure, the Magic Gang, and Grouplove.

I am a producer and violinist originally from Richmond, Virginia. After graduating from the University of Georgia, I moved to Atlanta to learn from producer Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter) as his assistant engineer and studio manager. I am now working as an engineer and violinist at Chase Park Transduction in Athens as well as a touring keyboardist, violinist and saxophonist for Faye Webster. I enjoy producing, recording, or playing on any project with a sound that interests me!

I'm looking forward to hearing your work!

    This was my first time working with Annie, and hopefully not my last! She did an incredible job finding her role in the song and wrote some truly beautiful and creative parts. Thank you!

    Annie was super easy and friendly to work with, and quickly made an entire string arrangement for my song that gave it a whole lot more color and elevated the entire track. Would definitely work with her again!

    Annie crushed it! I sent five piano pieces and gave free reign with a couple of artists/songs to reference (Olafur Arnalds, Sigur Ros, etc). What she sent back was just what I hoped for. She was very accommodating with the couple of notes that I sent back and was a joy to work with! Will definitely be hiring her again.

    Annie was very communicable about her workflow and process. She reads music well and she recorded violin, viola and edited the cello parts to my ensemble piece. She has subtle mixing techniques for balancing sounds and sends complete stems, as well as her own sample mixdown which is very helpful. I’d recommend her in the future to all who are interested!

    Annie did a great job playing a bunch of string parts on my song. She was easy to work with. Quick turnaround, gladly made revisions, and sent back professional sounding tracks.

    Annie has recently recorded string sections for five of my tracks and they all sound amazing. The standard of her playing is second to none and the quality of the recordings are excellent. She has been a pleasure to work with and the whole process has been extremely smooth and efficient. I would definitely hope to work with Annie again in the future!

    Annie was able to take the project and run with it with very little direction...doing her own arrangement and recording the strings perfectly. Highly recommended.

    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.

Interview with Annie Leeth

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  2. 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!

  3. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  4. 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.

  5. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  6. 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.

  7. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  8. 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!
