Kristin Weber on SoundBetter

String hooks and fiddle licks are my passion. Credits: Dolly Parton, Cage the Elephant. Lush indie string section, fiddle lines, ripping bluegrass solo, string quartet, violin, viola, sweet/smokey female vocal.

30 years of background in classical and fiddling and Berklee graduate, over a decade as a Nashville session violinist. My experience ranges from writing lush indie string parts for records, touring with a grammy-nominated bluegrass band as a fiddler, performing in a string quartet with Lorde, playing on tracks for Lauryn Hill, recording in a symphony for movie soundtracks, touring as a singer and violinist with various bands. I can give you lush indie strings, a simple violin/fiddle line, a ripping bluegrass solo, string quartet arrangements, female vocals or anything else you can imagine. I can arrange for and hire experienced session cellists and other violinists and violists if you seek a duo, quartet or full string section sound.

My recording credits include: Dolly Parton, The Beach Boys, Little Big Town, Cage the Elephant, Roy Orbison, Midland, Margo Price, Brett Eldridge, Kelsea Ballerini, Burt Bacharach, Kacey Musgraves.

My performance credits include: Lorde, Cage The Elephant, Eminem, Carrie Underwood, Michael Buble, Evanescence, Augustana, Midland, Margo Price, Greta Van Fleet, Chris Stapleton.

    We are so happy with Kristin session. She did it so well, even though the song was in another language, it was important for us to deliver the right feelings and she did.
    Kristine took our song to another level. Thank you Kristin

    Kristin was everything I could’ve hoped for in a session player: Creative, original, patient, and kind. So happy with the finished product! It was a song that was difficult to arrange because it had some existing violin parts to work in, but she didn’t bat an eye, and was a pleasure to work with! Looking forward to doing more songs with her. Thank you so much, Kristin!

    Highly recommend Kristen. She is very easy to work with and more than willing to both listen to your ideas as well as come up with her own when asked. I asked her to improv a part and play a pre-written part and both came out beautifully. Everything was also done well ahead of schedule. I'll be back for sure the next time I need violin!

    This is the second song I have been lucky enough to have Kristin play on, And I'm not sure if I will ever arrange another song without her playing!
    Kristin brings life to any job, Be it thru violin, viola or fiddle. because its not the instrument or tool she uses, Her message in the music is exactly what the song is trying to say. She has the skills of a master, and we are so lucky to have the chance to work with her. Her listening skills are impeccable, and I cant say enough good about her🎻!!!

    Kristin not only has the ears of a masterful string musician, But she also has a ear for production that is some sort of hybrid between the musical IQ of Michael Jackson nd Bach. she has brought out the whisper of the violin and the depth of the cello. Her melodic arrangements are heartfelt and joyful. I don't always wright poetry when I review a pro but Kristins string's, brings out the poet in me, I guess:) Communication and patience might be the only thing better than her playing. USE KRSTIN!

    I don't know Kristin's views on baseball, but her latest efforts were a grand slam-- a no doubter as they say. Our piece was in the bottom of the ninth, but I couldn't seems to bring it home. Kristin's imaginative, soulful, skillful playing, and her desire to swing for the fences made the piece. She gets references to all types of violin styles- and can do it all. Can't wait to work with her again.

    Wow. Kristin has the chops, is super responsive, plays and sings with enthusiasm and has great musical intuition and ability. We had a track that was kind of lingering in the 'not going to make it on the album' bin. We decided to see what she could add to it- and now it's going on the record. I can't wait to find another track for her to work on.

    Kristin Weber is a truly brilliant string arranger and executor. She did the strings for my debut record 8 years ago—everything from rippin' fiddle solos to creating all of the parts for a string quartet, to sweeping orchestral strings—and she has been my go-to all-things-strings first choice ever since. I am constantly amazed by how her creative brain works. She seems to just pull these unique parts from thin air that just end up MAKING the song. I can't recommend her services highly enough!

    I hired Kristin to compose string arrangements and bring in string sections for our last studio album and she KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK! She is a great player, creative composer, professional, and a joy to work with, plus she can charm a sarcastic engineer. I trust her musical instinct and versatility. She complemented the vibe of each song ranging from symphonic soul on “Listen Sister”, cinematic romanticism on “Sally’s Gone”, quirky, fun, and energetic on “Fave Wave” and a rowdy fiddle solo on “Intervention”. She is a five star, must hire!

    Kristin is an absolute pro and a pleasure to work with. I hire her often for string work, and each time she delivers beautiful arrangements. Her sense of melody, counter melodies and harmony are such a joy to hear and sit so perfectly in each song. Hire her, you'll love it.

    Kristin is one of the most talented, professional, conscientious musicians I've worked with. She always devotes herself fully to any musical work in front of her. She's not only technically a highly skilled violinist, well versed in multiple genres and styles, she also has a beautifully creative voice which is heard in her arrangements and solos. Her violin playing feels akin to a human voice: emotionally and uniquely expressive in a way that is all her own. She's also a great harmony singer, finding the most fitting parts and matching her phrasing and tone to the lead singer.
