Violinist on Recording Project
I was first introduced to Alleya via a colleague, during the creation of, ‘Inspirations From My Imagination’, which was my final university project and my first commercial release. I did not know it at the time, but Alleya would become one of my most important collaborators during the project, who I have referred to as ‘The Unsung Star’ of the EP. Not only did she perform on 3 of the 4 tracks (all of which were in very different genres) but she put together the other string players who formed the string quartet that performed on one of the tracks, something she did entirely of her own accord and for which I still remain very grateful. Despite all my stresses with the project, I loved working with Alleya. She has been exceptionally helpful in making corrections and improvements to the violin parts which I have sent to her, for the EP, as there can be issues that make the original score unplayable in parts, which is a common problem when writing music electronically. She continues to do this with my more recent compositions. Alleya is a very talented and knowledgeable violinist who is kind, helpful and professional, as well as being incredibly patient. She can perform in various genres of music with equal measures of brilliance. It was an absolute honour for me to collaborate with her on this EP and I look forward to the next major collaboration with her.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

We provide packages and services to suit individual specifications. Our repertoire includes various genres like classical, Pop, film music, House, and Pop House. We perform for various wedding moments including wedding ceremony music for bridal entry, signing of register, (acoustic violin/electric violin with backing tracks), and for drinks receptions, and dinner. We also play LED violin with DJ. I am happy to meet with couples either in person or via phone/e-mail. After confirming availability for dates, we establish whether the couple would like a solo player or a group. We can provide 1-4 players and occasionally larger groups if requested. From there we look at what parts of the day the couple would like music, determining length of sets and booking. This helps create a custom package as every wedding is different. While we have a library of music prepared, the couple can also make specific song requests and genres to accomplish setting their desired scene. To fully confirm a booking, we request a deposit. We will then send a questionaire to iron out all details so that we can take care of everything music related and you can enjoy your wedding!
