Sessions and Recording

DSC_0058_edited.jpg

During the 2020 pandemic, much of my professional work was affected and I instead invested a lot of time into learning how to record and produce high quality sound at home. Since then I have made over one hundred recordings for people all over the world out of my home in Manchester. This includes many of my own compositions, arrangements and harp parts that I have written to compliment a sprawling range of music from songwriters’ demos to large orchestral works.

As well as my ability to play from composed sheet music, I have built plenty of experience from work which has required me to arrange harp parts myself, or write commissioned music from entirely from scratch. This skill means I can help artists and producers regardless of the current working state of their music. If you are working on your own music that you think might benefit with the help of a practiced harpist, be it via a remote recording or organised session work, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

To get an idea of the kind of music I have made for others previously, you can listen to some of the recordings I have made on my soundcloud. Linked below is a playlist of my ‘harp meditations’ - compositions I have written for those who have requested soft looping music that is suitable for rest and relaxation.
