Leo Abrahams on SoundBetter

Credits with Mark Ronson, Jon Hopkins, Regina Spektor and many more. Guitar, but not as we know it. From pristine sonic landscapes, through intricately crafted parts, to utter filth. Everything I send you will serve the song - it won't just be sonic splurge. Unless sonic splurge is what you want.

I love playing guitar for people and contributing to their music. I'll bring unique sounds, and a producer's ear for arrangement and hooks. I made the Enigma sample libraries for Spitfire Audio, and now I'm excited to take a bespoke approach.

I'm equally happy taking specific instructions (including sheet music), abstract ones (someone once told me to play as if I'd been cycling uphill in the verse and downhill in the chorus), or no instructions at all. I can send a variety of approaches for you to choose from, which I can then develop further.

I always think about what works in the context of the song or piece of music - both in terms of musical content and texture. But first takes often have a specific energy, so I usually record my gut reaction before getting too analytical!

After studying composition at the Royal Academy I joined Imogen Heap's band. Over a 22-year career I've featured on over 350 releases by artists including Brian Eno, Jon Hopkins, Grace Jones, Mark Ronson, Paul Simon, Adele and Florence & The Machine, and on film scores such as Oceans 8, Twilight and The Lovely Bones.

DJing is not my skill but I've posted a montage of clips from various releases. Aside from the obvious, all the synth-y sounds are guitar too.

I'll be happy to help you however I can.

    Leo is magic! He delivered exactly what I was envisioning but incapable of pulling off myself — hyper-creative, emotionally poignant, and just plain fun! I can’t wait to start another track just to hire Leo again. My favorite collaboration on Soundbetter so far.

    I received incredible guitars from Leo that turned out perfectly for what my track needed, just a few refernces and he was able to get a sence of what i was trying to achieve. it definatly exceeded my expectations and the recording them selves were of high quality which made them aluminate the mix to another level, oh and yes you do get multiple stems to play with.
    All in all i was so glad to have had this experience and i will be coming back for more.
    Thank you Leo.

    I've worked with Leo before, and just as before, he dropped very tasteful tracks that fit exactly what my song needs. He does a great job of making sure his tracks support your music.

    Leo is an excellent artist to collaborate with. He thoughtfully listens to the music and finds the most beautiful ways to enhance and elevate it. I know I will be asking him for more guitar magic in the near future.

    This is the third time I have worked with Leo, I am not sure how many more superlatives I can use at this point! I gave Leo some erratic thoughts on where I was hoping the song could go and not only did he embrace said thoughts, he took the song to places I never imagined.

    Once again, Leo delivered better than I expected nailing the tone and parts of the song that I wanted. I find that Leo can play whatever styles I request in the most excellent manner. I will definitely be working with Leo as much as I can.

    Leo did am absolute amazing job on my new wave single with guitar tracks. He gave me a plethora of options to work with and many different variations of tone. I asked for a Duran Duran style guitar and he delivered more than I expected! Very timely on deliverables as well. Highly recommend Leo!

    I composed a couple of guitar tracks with a plugin but wanted them played by a real guitarist for a more human feeling. Leo was spot on from the start and even threw in additional ideas. Really happy with the result and work process (very responsive). Hope to work with him again.

    What can I say, incredible! I gave Leo the most basic of instructions/hopes and what came back was far greater than I could ever have hoped! Stunning guitar work including: atmospherics, glitch, drive, hooks. Thank you!

    My second project with Leo, and it won't be my last. I'm new to Sounndbetter, so it's great to have met someone like Leo on my first swing. I'm using him to fill out a lot of "empty space" in my tracks - places where a thoughtful effect, or an artsy but subtle rhythm can make all the difference. He's a genius at giving me options that I can pick and choose from for my arrangement, and he doesn't hold back creatively. Can't wait to conjure up another track to send his way.

    What can I say. . . my very first try on Soundbetter and I found Leo. I needed guitar tracks for a pretty heavily synth-based tune, but I didn't know WHAT I needed. Leo did. He sent me over 4 or 5 different layers that I could mix and match from, and nailed it in the first take. In our revision round, he added a new rhythm guitar part that will definitely make the final mix as well. He was extremely professional, on time, and super creative. Can't wait to work with him again.

    I can’t say enough good things about my friend Leo. Above all else, I admire his ability to bring out the best in everyone around him and knowing when to chime in with big picture suggestions at just the right time. The best.

    Leo Abrahams is one of Life’s rare creatures. A humbly brilliant musician who approaches every project he takes on with a passion and a joy that is contagious. His dexterity on any number of instruments is mindbending and his ears and hands in a studio are understandably highly sought after. I have been very blessed to have known Leo for many years in many capacities. We have recorded, toured, played in studios and on stages together for over two decades and every time we are fortunate enough to be in the same room sparks fly and beautiful things happen. Encore...

    I have worked with Leo on a number of projects, from Hollywood Multi million dollar blockbusters to small intimate indie art films and he always brings an amazing new dimension to each recording.

    His ideas are always fresh and inspiring and his enthusiasm for excellence is a treat to behold.

    Leo is without doubt, one of the finest and most original guitarists in the world. He’s managed to find a unique voice on a ubiquitous instrument and push the limits of sound design in both the digital and analog realm. Every session with him is fluid and productive, he’s a great producer and composer as well. I cannot recommmend him highly enougk.
