Mike Snow on SoundBetter

Let me put a live horn section on your recording and help bring it to life.I play most brass instruments plus Akai EWI wind synth and harmonica. You get several musicians for the price of one with me. I use an assortment of mics to give a nice sound variation.

I'm able to play in pretty much all styles. I can arrange and lay down all the parts for a complete horn section and do solos as required.If you're not sure what you want; I'll do the arrangements for you at no extra cost. I play straight and cross harp harmonica too and can embellish and solo. I cut my chops playing in brass bands and then jazz big bands. My first pro gig was with Supercharge who played at huge festivals such as Reading and Glastonbury and backed up top American and UK blues artists.I then did session and live work all over the UK and Europe as part of a horn section, playing on TV and radio commercials and also with the likes of Ruby Turner and Climax Blues Band,
I spent a year teaching trumpet whilst I put together my own band. I front, sing, play trumpet,harmonica, drums, trombone, EWI, keyboards and guitar in my band which has released several albums and toured all over the world and recorded at Abbey Road Studio in London.I've also had a BBC Radio 2,Terry Wogan record of the week.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Just finished buy second project with Mike. The first was a big arrangement with full horn section. This one was much more intimate. Both times he came up with interesting and creative sounds that really added to the project. Highly recommended. Would definitely work with him again.

    Mike was super, super easy to work with. He put a lot of thought into his parts, and delivered something that fit in nicely. Everything was top notch. Very lucky to work with him.

    Want a world-class horn section playing on your song? Well then you've come to the right place. Mike did an awesome job my song in which he included stellar performances on multiple instruments. In addition, he's super easy to work with, fast and professional. We clients are lucky to have him as an SB player.

    Mike is great! He was able to take a melody and lay down a full horn section with harmony parts and everything, and went above and beyond what we asked him for. Prompt response time, great sounding tracks, easy to work with. Looking forward to working with Mike again in the near future.

    This was my first time working with horns in an arrangement. Mike made the experience a pleasure. With very little direction, he quickly got the vibe I was looking for and delivered a series of layered tracks that gave me plenty of options to pick from. Great communication. Quick turnaround. Highly recommended. Would definitely work with him again.

    I’ll readily admit I had nothing more than a vague idea of wanting horns in a song. Mike took that and gave me something great. My song is many times better for his talent.

    Mike gave my track EXACTLY what it was missing. Even went as far to give some extra tracks that I didn't even request, but ended up using, and gave the song that magical extra 10% that sets it apart. THANK YOU MIKE!

    Mike put just as much heart and care into this project as the original artist I produced these songs for. It never felt like we had a hired session player, it felt like we had a new member of the band. Thank you Mike!

    Can't be more happy with the horns tracks Mike delivered for two songs. Mike went way beyond what I expected with multiple layered tracks, all great quality and a wonderful performance.

    Mike is an expert multi-instrumentalist who supported me on my latest track by performing a fantastic brass section. Not only was his playing perfect, he was very quick to respond to communications and flexible on delivering the part quickly with revisions. I would be very happy to work with Mike again on future projects and would recommend him wholeheartedly.

    Mike is a class act, both in communication and his work. I told him the mood I was looking for and gave him some basic instructions and what he delivered totally exceeded my expectations. I'd gladly work with Mike again and would have no hesitation recommending him to someone who needs a horn section arrangement and recording done well and in a timely fashion.
