I've been arranging strings since I was a kid. I have a home studio here in Nashville, TN. I play all four classical string instruments (violin, viola, cello and bass). I started doing that because I didn't have anyone else to play it for me where I grew up. So I became my own string section. I can be your string section too.

Hey! I'm Kiara Ana and I'm a professional violist and violinist based in Los Angeles. Does your song need a little bit of live string love? Perhaps just one haunting line? Or stacks of sweeping orchestral lines? Maybe you don't know what it could use, but you think strings might be the answer? Let's chat, be creative and get strings on your song!
