I love collaborating with musicians and producers, bringing unique elements to their recordings, and helping them on their creative path. That could mean adding subtle percussion and textures, hand drum parts and solos, a full rhythm section, unique melodic instruments, didgeridoo, flutes, or helping conceptualize and build a piece from the ground up. I have a wide range of instrumentation at my disposal, with an emphasis on ethnic and unique instruments, and a fully equipped studio. I have an easy and convenient system of uploading files, recording from my studio, sending sample mixes and full res back and forth. Or, if you prefer, we can work in person at the studio of your choice. Below is a partial list of instruments I work with, and I would be happy to learn about your project and give a free consultation as to what I might contribute.

“I had the pleasure to work with Gabriel Harris during the recording of my song ‘La Medicina’ last year. Gabriel was most helpful and a pleasure to work with from the very first encounter. He added the touch of his amazing percussion in the track and got into the feeling of the song without a problem. He was very professional, friendly and focused. I look forward to future collaborations and highly recommend him”
