recommended session players

I can’t overstate the impact of having great session players on your booking. These players are pros: they’re faster and more in control of tone and performance and, because of that, they’ll save you money.

All of the players on this list are amazing people with tons of experience tracking at Tiny Telephone. They have our full endorsement.
Please discuss options with your engineer, we can help schedule the players.
