Chelsea McGough on SoundBetter

Hello! I'm a Nashville-based session and touring cellist. I've most recently played with Copeland, Gungor, Needtobreathe, and a host of indie singers and songwriters. While I love enhancing other people's music, I'm also passionate about writing, composing, and producing my own music too.

Even though I'm classically trained, I am well versed in multiple genres. I've also co-written several scores for indie films and many of my tracks have been successful on micro licensing sites.

The string parts I write and play are simple, tasteful, and executed quickly, matching them to fit your vision for the song.

I can track a part already written out or I can write and arrange the parts myself.

I can't wait to work with you in bringing your songs to life!

  5. Review by Greg Johnson

    Absolutely wonderful playing and her audio quality was fantastic as well. She has a wonderful feel and keen sense of melody.

  6. Review by Joshua Spacht

    No need to look any further. If you're in need of cello overdubs from a reputable and well-rounded musician, Chelsea should really be your choice. She can read notation, improvise, play expressively. And, she uses high-quality preamps and microphones on top of it all! She treats each project like an artist, not a "process". Exceptional work!
