Miriam Wakeling on SoundBetter

I am a dedicated session cellist who would love to add layers of rich cello sound to your track. Last year I toured extensively with producer Giorgio Moroder. I have a variety of recording experience, from traditionally classical, to pop, disco, afrobeat & folk. I can improvise and write parts for your songs and I'll find the sound right for you.

I love to record from home and to find the sound and style to best suit your song. I ensure every recording is the best quality it can be, and if you need anything played differently, or details added, I will ensure to do revisions for you.

I can offer improvised ideas for your track before recording, if you don't have a string arrangement already.
Or send me a score and the track and I can record straight away!

Simply send me the MP3 and the BPM.

I will be recording with Aston stereo microphones plus a Condenser Aston Origin microphone. I can give you a separate track on these if you'd like, no problem!

I have recorded for many TV/Film catalogues and I recorded the music for David Attenborough's series Dynasties.

Last year I also had the privilege to work with Trevor Horn, Beverley Knight and Pete Tong, but to name a few.
I also recorded recently on Roger O'Donnell's (The Cure) new upcoming album.

I have recorded for Dua Lipa, JHus, and appeared live on BBC1 Live Lounge with Yungblud, and BB1 with The Vamps and on Femi Temowo's Afrobeat album 'Music is the Feeling.'

I have a diverse musical background, having been a member of several bands. However I trained Classically on Cello for 6 years at Conservatoires, obtaining a Masters in Music Performance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London in 2013.

    Miriam is fantastic, gets it perfect every time. Always come to her for cello and I've yet to be disappointed.

  2. Review by Tom Campbell

    Miriam played and recorded my cello part exactly as I had imagined it, and got it over to me in a couple of days. Sounds beautiful, couldn't ask for more!

  3. Review by Tom Campbell

    Miriam played my cello part beautifully, and supplied excellent recordings well within the deadline. I will definitely come to her again for remote cello session work!

  4. Review by Gunnar S.

    This was my second collaboration with Miriam. I was totally blown away by the crystal clear sound, creativity and passion that she delivered back at our first collaboration but this time she even exceeded. I am beyond happy by the quality, pristine sound and professionalism she puts into every job. I have goose bumps listening to her cello and I am looking forward to many more collaborations! I highly recommend her and I am so glad I have found her here. Thank you!

    Miriam has done an excellent job, she exceeded my expectations and composed and recorded a wonderful cello part for my piano piece. I will work with her again in the future for sure. Recommended!

    Miriam is an amazing cellist that goes the extra mile to get it done. She also created an experimental track full of creativity and amazing ideas on top of what I was looking for. The quality is crystal clear and gives you extra goosebumps. Highly recommended!
