Karl is a great player and a focused, attentive, and dedicated musician. Great tone, great time, great hang!
Karl demonstrates everything a producer / artist would possibly want from a session musician. He arrives fully prepared and is able to adapt to all genres of music and be incredibly flexible to all different recording approaches. Karl is able to execute in very few takes, whether it be reading down a chart, learning lines by ear, improvising, etc. Aside from the highest caliber musicianship, Karl always brings an incredibly positive and friendly attitude to every session which makes him a pleasure to have around the studio. He is always my first call.
Karl Lyden is a top-notch session player who brings superior musicianship and sensitivity in his ability to lift a variety of styles off the page. I've hired him to record for pop music remotely, as well as to play in a symphonic scoring session, and I can't recommend him enough. He is a breeze to work with and always brings high quality playing and professionalism.
