cello arrangement for online session work August 2018

“Working with Emily was an absolute dream. We went from first contact to completing the project in less than a week – which seems to be a real rarity with session musicians nowadays! The most important thing for me on Table For Two was capturing a unique cello performance full of personality & passion rather than editing together ‘perfect’ parts, which was something Emily was able to get spot on first time with her great control of her instrument. The recording quality was fantastic, options of both microphone & DI recording were provided (both were used…obviously!!) and she totally understood what I was after. I really couldn’t be happier with what she came up with – the cello really defines that song now, which is exactly what I was hoping it would do.” “Table for two” . Cello arrangement and online session for Joe Perkins CD release “Double Denim”.

Online session for soundtrack composer Steve Horner – Horner Music. Los Angeles, CA

“I couldn’t be more pleased with Emily’s work on my latest project. Her performance was sensitive, beautifully executed, well recorded and delivered promptly to my specifications the first time. It’s so rewarding to work with a seasoned pro that fully understands the music creation process from beginning to end. I’m very much looking forward to working with her on future projects.” Steve Horner – Horner Music

Cello arrangement and online session for”Butterflies” from Jordan Grant debut EP

“I have recently had the pleasure of working with Ms. Burridge on the opening track of my EP. I’d decided I wanted a cello in my song, but knew no cellists. I took to Google and what started as choosing the first name on the list, turned out to be a match made in Heaven. Emily cares. She genuinely cares about music and about what she does. She asked me loads of questions about the nature of the song, the lyrics, the motivation for writing it and all of that poured into her crafting of the cello line; a line that has brought me to tears on numerous occasions. I cannot praise nor thank Emily enough.”

“Emily put down some fantastic, searing melodic parts on the album, that stylistically and emotionally fit the bill perfectly. She was a pleasure to work with, with a fast turn around on communication and the recorded parts. ” Will Jackson “Titanic” UK production

“I had the pleasure of working with Emily Burridge recently on some pieces intended for movie previews. Having a live cello blended in with samples was a huge help in giving the tracks an edge in a very competitive market. Emily was a consummate professional, she played beautifully, recorded the parts expertly and delivered them to me within 24 hours of my sending her the music, even giving me some alternate takes to chose from. She was terrific.” Stefan Girardet “Skyrunner” sent track over from Los Angeles USA
