Felix Gerlach on SoundBetter

Hi, I'm Felix, session and touring guitarist/cellist and songwriter/producer, based in Hamburg, Germany.

Having played and recorded with several platinum selling artists and toured in over 30 countries so far, I have made quite some experience with popular music.
Working as a songwriter as well and producing music für advertisement, I'm always searching for a guitar or cello line which is suiting best for the track. I'm also scoring string arrangements and recording it wether live with the cello or mixing it with strings out of the box.

Let's work together and make a good record!

    Felix is not just a truly great guitar-player, he also plays the cello major-release-ready in his home studio. I already had the chance to work with him a couple of times and it was always a pleasure. He is an easy guy to work with and always tries to deliver what you need. Hiring him is a no-brainer.

  6. Review by André W.

    Felix is a very talented and reliable musician who can spontaneously implement ideas and specifications. I had booked Felix for several studio sessions and I was always more than happy with the results. He is a sympathetic and open-minded colleague, who quickly finds his way in different genres and with whom I always enjoy working together.

    I have the pleasure to work with Felix for several years now. He is very reliable, thorough and has a great taste. We recorded an acoustic EP on which he played acoustic guitar, cello and lap steal, he played banjo and e-guitar for my album and we wrote some great songs together, which he pre-produced. As you can see, Felix is an allround talent and also a really great guy!

    I've been working with Felix for a few years now and he does have a great taste in choosing the right sound and playing just what's needed for your song. Always worth the money!

    I recorded lap-steel guitar, banjo, acoustic guitar and cello with Felix last summer. He played great and offered many good ideas, so the recordings were quickly finished. It was fun to work with him and, by the way, he is a great guy too! :-)

    I was asking Felix for several commercial and recording jobs. He is a really really fast in creating new and catchy layouts AND he‘s one of the best cello & guitar player I ever met.
    5/5 stars!

    Felix is meticulous! He always hits the tight deadlines i give him and is always willing to go the extra mile to get the production where it needs to be.
