Sometimes, a song or an album can benefit from the addition of new colours and timbres that additional musicians can offer. Luckily, the Cabin Studio works with some of the best session musicians in London. If you, for example, wanted to book a string section, brass players or experienced soloists from a number of genres, you can book any of the following musicians through this website.
