Add Strings to your Project with Joe Deninzon

He has arranged/performed/recorded for artists including Bruce Springsteen, Phoebe Snow, Everclear, Sheryl Crow, Ritchie Blackmore, Mark Wood, Peter Criss from KISS, Renaissance, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. In 2015, Joe composed and premiered his Electric Violin Concerto with the Muncie Symphony Orchestra. His electric violin instruction book, “Plugging In,” was published by Mel Bay. Joe's string quartets and solo pieces are published by Ludwig Masters and JW Pepper. His original music has been featured on shows like “Man V Food,” “Breaking Amish,” and “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.” 

He is featured on over 100 commercial and independent recordings. He owns and runs a fully equipped recording studio and offers a variety of services, including: 
  • -Solo recordings for acoustic or 7-string electric violin.
  • -String arrangements and recordings of string quartets or full string sections
  • -mandolin, vocals

In addition to violin, Joe plays viola and a “chin cello,” which, when layered, can create the sound of a full string section at a fraction of the cost. You can hear this on Joe’s original song, “The Prism," and his work with Bella D. (audio examples below). 

If the production budget allows, Joe can provide additional musicians.

If the budget is tight, Joe’s versatility and ability to cover the entire range of a 20-piece string orchestra, will keep you in the black.
