Online Session Musicians

How does this work?

In the same way that Thompsound Music can travel to record your project at a destination of your choice, Thompsound Music can also procure the services of session musicians of your choice for your project.

This could also mean that the session musician comes to Thompsound Music to record here or that it is all dealt with online. The recorded files are then made available to you using Dropbox or WeTransfer in whatever format is required, or added to the session. All dependent on the project of course.

Thus far, most clients have chosen to use Billy Thompson’s string work on their projects. Go to the Portfolio page to hear examples of how this has worked for a while now.
