Park Lane Hilton

 

I am based in Barnet, North London and have been playing guitar for 30 years.
I have worked with many bands, TV & radio stations and record
companies playing most styles of popular modern music. 
My main playing styles are funk, soul, R&B, pop, folk and rock.

I have a well equipped recording studio and offer an online guitar session playing service. I  can also help with production and arrangement ideas.

  Sessions...
Whenever I get involved in a recording session, my aim is to contribute guitar parts that focus on the feel & vibe of the song and compliment the existing sounds rather than compete with them.  The sounds I use will always be in keeping with the musical style of the material being produced.  The end result should always make the artist and their material sound as good as possible.

Online sessions...
If you are a singer songwriter, working in your own project studio, and your tracks need some inspired guitar parts then I can provide them for you without you needing to leave your producer's chair.

Simply create a stereo mix of the track, upload it to my site and I will create and record separate guitar tracks for you to download and add to your multi-track recording. 

The tracks I record for you will be copyright free, so you will have complete freedom to do whatever you wish with them.

Contact me for more information on the online session services I offer.
