The Cello Doll on SoundBetter

The Cello Doll | Classical Music with an Edge & an Instagram following of over 17K! A cellist with 20 years of playing experience and appearances at Boston Symphony Hall, Tanglewood, and Carnegie Hall. As a composer and arranger, her style has been compared to Shostakovich & Apocalyptica for its intense, heavy string writing.

The Cello Doll holds a Bachelor's in cello / composition & a Master's Degree in cello from the Boston University College of Fine Arts. Recently, she has also graduated from the Mannes School in NYC with a Performance Studies Diploma. Her cello teachers have worked with artists ranging from Pablo Casals to Leonard Bernstein and Evanescence. This gives The Cello Doll technical and an ability to play in a wide variety of alternative styles.

As a social media presence, The Cello Doll has been making a name for herself as an improviser, modern music specialist, and electric cellist...all stemming from the techniques of her classical training. Her original music videos of crossover mash-ups have thousands of views on YouTube, and her Instagram account is still growing! She has experience arranging pop songs for orchestras, composing for string ensembles, chamber orchestras, and layering tracks of herself to create dense, cello choirs.

The Cello Doll has the ability to record remotely and has a world-class sound library for larger compositions. She cannot wait to work with you to make your musical musings an edgy reality!

    Carolyn (The Cello Doll) is one of the most dedicated artists I have ever worked with. Her passion for her craft is intense and palpable, and she brings to new music an almost unbelievable unique voice and authority. She has premiered two pieces of mine and I loved her playing so much, I have since written two more things completely with her in mind. Work with this artist in any way you can—she is a rare talent that you have to hear to believe!
