“Melodic, tuneful, soaring, emotional, rumpus, and fun! These are just a few of the ways that Laurel Thomsen helped sculpt and lift every song she played on. Her deft touch and ear added to the meaning and meaningfulness of every song. Laurel Thomsen has a gift for music. I highly recommend Laurel for any musical project that you even think might sound good with a violin, viola, or fiddle.”
“Laurel Thomsen is one of the best session players I’ve worked with. She crafts great parts, comes prepared, and her playing is incredibly consistent, making it easy to find usable takes. She has a great ear for arranging and blending, and after she's done it's like her vocals or violin or viola were always in the mix. I can't hear the song without them anymore, and that's a good thing! It’s also been a great help to have her in the studio when listening back to mixes, helping choose the best performances, and making the job of the producer a lot easier. Laurel is creative, relaxed, open to trying ideas, and really has a gift for nailing memorable performances."
