Gregory Allison on SoundBetter

I create unique violin, viola, and cello compositions and arrangements for your song or film. Listening to you and the needs of the song is important to me. I'm a Berklee grad and have twenty years of performing experience, and over 10 as a professional recording musician.

Remote recording studio for strings. I can provide solo violin, fiddle, or full string sections (violin, viola, cello) for your tracks in any genre. All tracks are recorded at the highest quality in a professional recording studio. I'm classically trained with lots of performance experience in Folk/Americana, South Indian Classical music, Middle Eastern Music, and Eastern European/Balkan folk music. I also offer mandolin.

Make your tracks shine with a full string section, a ripping violin solo, or a beautiful melody to accompany your voice. I listen carefully to you and your music and serve the needs of the song or film.

Fast turnaround time. Easy communication. Professional quality. I can't wait to hear from you!

    i made my record alongside greg and i would have never had it any other way. greg is an astounding musician, creative force, producer, and friend. not only did we create a record i'd dreamed of making my entire life, but i had a blast every day of the process because it was with greg. do not miss out on an oppurtunity to work with him, i cannot reccomend enough.

    Greg is a World class musician, producer and engineer. He continues to promote and produce exceptional music and productions. His understanding of Analogue and digital production capabilities sets him apart from the pack.

  5. Review by Tristan de Liege
    by Tristan de Liege

    Greg is extremely professional and timely and has a wonderfully developed personal vocabulary with his violin that is sure to add a special touch to your music. I’ve used Greg on a few string arrangements and it’s amazing to me how he’s able to bring a track to life with all his layering. He’s masterful at pretty much any articulation you can think of and in terms of work flow is also very organized and communicative, which is always very helpful.
