String arranging and recording

Simmy Singh on SoundBetter

With Sim's String Sessions you get the whole package. I can record, write and arrange strings for you! From solo string lines to full lush string sections, I'm here to help you find the perfect string sound to add to your work. I'm a professional violinist/violist who loves to bring performance into the studio and provides a sound like no other.

Real strings will always sound better and bring a life and vitality to any track that's hard to beat and that's why I want to make it a real possibility for composers, arrangers, singer-songwriters, bands and producers to use them

I'm a professional violinist/violist that is equally at home on stage performing or in the studio. I am classically trained but have experience in many different areas and I believe this gives me my unique sound. My freelance career ranges from playing with top jazz artists such as Chris Potter and Gwilym Simcock, to playing in chamber and symphony orchestras Manchester Camerata and Sinfonia Cymru, to leading my own crossover orchestra - Kaleidoscope Orchestra, to working with electronic producers such as BBC Radio 1's Benji B and Werkha, to leading my jazz/crossover string quartet, Amika, to writing string parts for my band, Biederbeck - and I love every part of what I do.

I am here to help you find the perfect string sound to your work, whether you want me to record string parts you have already written or would like creative input from me, I am here to help and look forward to working with you!
