I’ve been performing and recording violin for over 10 years.  I have a professional studio and I’d love to collaborate with you on your next project.  I can record a range of styles for violin or fiddle including folk, pop, hip hop, rock, jazz, classical, cajun, gypsy, country, and more!  Notation is not required so feel free to just send an idea if you don’t have sheet music.

Joel is a great, all around professional. He masterfully plays both violin and mandolin, knows how to play in ensembles, knows when to lean in and lean back, and, perhaps more importantly, is a consistent pleasure to work with. Besides being a great guy, his playing really adds to the music in the best ways. 
–Ben Bell
Joel always brings a fearless sense of adventure to new compositions. His passion and focus for creative work has been a consistent force through the years, leaving an indelible mark on audiences far and wide.

I’m so thankful I got to work with Joel Willson on two songs I recorded in 2019 and 2020. My sound engineer Johnathan Treeby and I gave him a very scratch version of the songs. In one conversation I told him the feel I was going for with him playing mandolin and fiddle. He went into studio and in no time we had plenty of beautiful mandolin and fiddle takes to choose from weaved throughout the songs. His work brought the exact emotion I wanted. I would ask him to play in studio for my work again and again! Thanks Joel!
–Taylor Frey 
Working with Joel Willson was a breeze. He has all of the chops and precision of a classically trained musician AND the playfulness to play the parts I could only hum for him.
