Professional Tracks for Pedal Steel, Guitar, Folk Instruments and more for your Song or Album for $100
Hi! My name is Ben Waligoske, and I'm a professional touring, studio, and session musician based in beautiful Denver, Colorado. I play pedal steel guitar, guitar, bass, keys, sing/write, and also pick some dobro, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica from time to time. I work both out of a home studio and a larger project studio here in Denver as a player, producer, and engineer, and I love working with artists big and small, from all genres and and backgrounds. I'd love to add any of these instruments to your project!
I keep my rates reasonable (100 per track, per instrument - but contact me for bulk discounts or custom orders) and offer excellent communication and turnaround on each project I take on, so if you're interested in taking your song or album to the next level and adding some serious professional polish to it - I'm your guy! I will write, record, and deliver high-quality files in any format you choose and am happy to offer revisions until you are 100% satisfied with my work!
