SESSION MUSICIAN

If you wish to enrich your already-written songs with takes done by a session musician, I offer my services to record individual instrument takes. I work mainly in pop, funk, electro, urban & rock music styles.

Here are the instruments I can record for you:

  • I have been singing for 15 years.Main vocals and/or back vocals in tenor and baritone registers. Many different techniques are possible. According to your needs, melodies can be written with or without lyrics, dubbed or harmonized.
  • Bass lines (4 strings). I have been playing bass guitar for 10 years. Takes can be performed fingerstyle or using pick or slap techniques. I cover various genres, ranging from funk to hard rock through pop and jazz.
  • Guitar holds. I’ve been playing guitar for 9 years, in lead and rhythm guitar. The holds can be done with a pick or fingers.
  • Jazz pianist since 5 years, I can take care of your keyboards, pads, synthesizers or pop piano jacks.

Concerning the lyrics, I have been writing lyrics for more than 15 years. The total amounts to more than 1000 lyrics in French and English on many themes. Whether you want a long, scenery-based text or something much more raw, dry and urban, I’d be happy to write that for you. Don’t hesitate to consult some excerpts, in French and English.

All the services listed above include the following:

  • Realization of a high quality composite take, based on several unique takes
  • Rhythm quantization and pitch correction, if desired
  • Track clean-up (silences, breaths, high-pass filter)
  • Sculpting sounds with effects, if desired
  • A revision is included in the price

Here is the list of information and files to provide me :

  • A .wav (or .mp3) file of the song without the track you want to record.
  • If you have already recorded a draft or an alternative track for the desired instrument, please send me a separate audio file.
  • As much information as possible about the song(s): tempo, key(s), and time signatures if you know them.
  • (optional) 1 to 3 reference songs close to the song you are creating.

For example, let’s say you want me to record a funky bass line for your song. Ideally, you should send me one or more songs with similar bass lines.

If you’re available, this list of information could be supplemented by a quick call. Thanks to this exchange, I will be sure to list your project specifications and requirements
