I’m a conservatoire trained cellist with experience playing live across Europe and the World. I am also a working TV and film composer with Primetime TV and feature film credits (which you can see elsewhere on the site) and can write a tailored part for the cello if required.
Some of the groups and Artists that I have done recording sessions and concerts for include Dj Tigerstyle, Nathan ‘Flutebox’ Lee, Drugstore, Addie Brik, Sir John Tavener, The Dreem Teem with Kele le Roc, Starman (Pineapple Dance Studio), Kool G Rap, Noraay, Fours. I have played live on major radio broadcasters and across the World at venues including Sydney Opera House, The Southbank Centre in London, The Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Prospect Park in NYC and at Festivals including Glastonbury, the BBC Proms and London Jazz Festival at the Barbican.
I’m available for remote sessions to record cello for your tracks and projects. If you are based in London or the South East of the UK then I can also attend recording sessions in person. Contact me for a quote.
Send me an MP3 of your track with info on it’s BPM and we can discuss what you want in the cello part. I’ll then send you back an MP3 of the cello recording for comments and possible alterations and after you’ve signed off on the recording I’ll send the final tracks over at sample and bit rates of your choice. The recording setup here is nice and simple – the cello is recorded with an AKG C414 microphone through a Focusrite pre-amp into an RME audio interface. Contact me for more information about online session cello. I try to obtain traceable testimonials so clicking on people’s names in the testimonials and comments below should take you through to their websites where provided.

I’ve worked with Matt for well over 5 years and have him for his exceptional cello and piano playing on tracks I’ve done with the likes of: Kool G Rap, Saigon, Richard Darbyshire.
He has a great ear for music and melodies and he has never let me down and always adds something special and unique to tracks and scores that he has done. I can not thank him and recommend his services highly enough.
