I have a large network of musicians-for-hire who have contracted with me to play or sing on various projects. These are professional musicians who perform for a living and require no rehearsal. They can hear your song in "scratch form" when they come in for the session and perform in any key or meter "on the fly." Most songs do not require more than one hour of recording time for these musicians. We record multiple takes of each instrument and the best parts of each take are comped into a single take and put in the mix. The fees for these musicians are in addition to the studio time for them to record. My rates for these musicians are $52/hour* for instrumentalists and $104/hour* for vocalists. If you want to bring in your own musicians, you are free of course to negotiate payment with them individually instead of using mine, but do keep in mind that amateur musicians generally require more time in the studio and the difference in quality is noticeable in the final product.

*One-hour minimum per session, billed in 15-minute increments after the first hour. Session time includes all necessary set-up.
