Dillan is currently writing, performing, and recording original music with his band, Witherow. But with a new home studio, he is now able to do session work quickly and easily, having worked on developing great tones on both electric and acoustic guitars. He is magical on lead guitar and can do some very impressive things on an acoustic guitar. He is an excellent choice for either!
Backing Vocals - $50/hr
Noelle is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, as well as a brilliant photographer! Perhaps her greatest asset in the recording studio, however, is her ability to create perfect backing vocals. A natural at creating unique layers of "oohs", "aahs", and the like, she also has an uncanny ability to perfectly match the lead singer's tone, timing, inflections, and vowel pronunciations...all of which help create harmonies that blend beautifully and keep the focus on the lead singer. We highly recommend her for any backing vocal needs you have for your project!
Cello - $50/hr
