Luis G. Moya on SoundBetter

Violinist, arranger, composer and producer.

I am a professional violinist and multi-instrumentalist with over 15 years of studio recording experience. I define myself as a versatile violinist capable of adapting to different musical styles and empathic, I usually know what artists are looking for their songs.
I can record violins in different styles: pop, folk, blues, swing, world, tango and classical, with a clean and tuned sound or a little more greasy if the style requires it.
I also do chamber and orchestral arrangements that can add brightness and depth to your songs.
I have studied recording techniques and music production and I have a home studio from where I can record with a professional sound.
