Pro session horns for bands, songwriters and producers no matter where you are in the world


A Passionate Trumpet Player

Hi, I'm Danny Lester and I've been playing trumpet and other brass instruments for as long as I can remember. I first picked it up at 6 years old and haven't put it down since. I first started playing in brass bands but along the way my playing experiences have became incredibley varied. I have played as a session musician for a huge number of musicians and bands, playing and being in the studio with some of my all time favourites along the way, playing styles as varied as classical, hip hop, indie rock, hardcore punk, jazz, basically anything you can think of. Thanks to advances in technology, we no longer need to be in the same room to work together and this is where I come in as a remote session trumpet player.



What is remote recording?

Remote recording is quite a simple process and saves you as an artist time, money and the hassle of having to find a good trumpet player locally who can fit to your schedule.

Simply send me a WAV of your track as it is and an idea of what you want from a session horn track (this can be anything from a midi track to you humming it, I'm easy!) and I'll send you back the stems of me playing just that! Best of all you dont pay a thing until you are 100% happy with the track!


couldn't be easier

1. You write an awesome song!

2. You send me a recording of your song and a guide track or notes on what you want from the trumpet.

3. I record your horn track and send you an MP3 of the song as it is.

4. We discuss any changes you want and make any revisions until you are happy.

5. I invoice you and once paid I send you the high quality trumpet tracks.

6. You release a killer record and take over the world!


I've worked with some great people. I can't wait to add you to the list.

Danny Lester wrote and recorded several parts on my studio album and everything was fantastic: the brass parts were exactly what the song needed and the recording process was smooth and professional; would definitely recommend.

Kelly Kemp - Singer/Songwriter

Danny was a pleasure to work with! His tracks absolutely nailed the vibe of the song, and the recording was perfect for the production. I would absolutely recommend him, and plan to continually use his services in the future.

Bob Cooper - Producer

Danny worked with me on trumpet parts for my band’s latest record. I sent him the track and a rough outline of what I wanted, and he was fully prepared on the day, totally nailed the parts, and has made the song so special and beautiful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or work with him again in the future. Also he’s totally sound and a lush human being
