Strings go well with anything! OK, I’m biased. I particularly love strings in hip hop and in American rock – that heavy, gutsy, polished rock that only the North Americans do well.
Here’s a minute of a track we did for Harry Hess, not only a renowned producer but a great singer and guitarist. And although the strings are seemingly overwhelmed by the wall of guitars, bass and drums, the texture and lines (and emotion that they provide) still poke through.
The track is ‘It’s Over’ from the album Living In Yesterday.
