Justin Lepard on SoundBetter

I will record studio quality, beautiful arranged cello parts remotely. I can improvise over, play along with, or read any part you need.

1. Studio quality sound - quiet and clear
2. The benefit of a real tube preamp to sound like it's been through a real board (a natural mic is used too)
3. Easy-to-mix arrangements, sensitive to the frequency spectrum of the project
4. Style tailored to your piece - can send any reference track to match
5. No need to edit anything, and easy to load
6. Unique improvisation ability for 20th century popular music forms
7. Small or large string ensemble size (cost scales with amount of required overdubs)
8. Mixing and mastering option if you have a string-only composition

Finally, I feel it's helpful to say I'm very interested in wave physics and how that affects music production. As such, I like to think my parts are uniquely effective at helping a production come to fruition through cello parts that enhance the total resonance of the song. This influences everything from room setup, mic'ing, gain stage, arrangement, performance, and guaranteed phase alignment between section parts.

  3. Review by Gunnar S.

    Justin is a true creative genius on the cello. I sent him a rather empty piece for him to lay down some improvisations and he totally took the track to a higher level. It is always an absolute pleasure to work with him. Highly recommended! Perfect experience!

  8. Review by Jeffrey M.

    Wow! Justin is amazing! I'm blown away by the magic he brought to my song with his beautiful Cello playing. Warmth, tenderness and the feeling that my song is being hugged barely describes how good his work is. He also took his time with me and made sure I got exactly what i needed, as well as, helping me to understand a lot of the process. Thank you Justin!

  10. Review by Martin Wykes

    This is my third track with Justin and he is a joy to work with. He is is equally at home improvising on a piece or re playing all ready written parts. Yes I can do that! is always his answer, he communicates extremely well and provides beautifully played and recorded tracks.
    Meeting a musician like Justin is the essence of what is great about SoundBetter.

  11. Review by Molly M.

    Justin went WAY above and beyond for my project and was timely and reasonably priced. The cello parts he gave me are excellent and I highly recommend working with Justin!

  12. Review by Martin Wykes

    This is my second time working with Justin and he is an incredible cellist and brilliant to work with. What I really like about Justin is he interprets music beautifully and writes his own parts going beyond any fleshed out ideas I send him.
    You need to work with Justin and the minute i have another song with cello I will be going back to Justin too.

  13. Review by Martin Wykes

    WORK WITH THIS MAN - Justin is an Incredible Cellist who OVER delivers.
    Like you I had never met or herd of Justin until choosing him on sound better. Justin took the time to make my music better, he is an absolute professional and his playing absolutely elevated my work. If you are lucky enough to work with Justin he will elevate your music too. Absolutely brilliant.
