"I have booked Michael and his horn section dbhorns for 9 sessions. Each session was exhilarating, creative, dynamic and thoroughly rewarding for all involved because of the attention to detail and the impressive learning and playing ability. I would not hesitate to recommend as huge value for money and as a positive guy who showed incredible musicality, craft and an understanding of the variety of song styles from Rock, through pop to Jazz and big band styles." - Tim Warner, Sony Music Songwriter


"Michael’s trumpet solo was the perfect addition to my single ‘Fit for a King’. He was great to work with throughout the whole process; versatile with his improvisations whilst following direction to fit the brief. Will definitely be working with him again!" Tilly Valentine, Independent Artist

My name is Michael Maddocks and I'm a professional freelance trumpet player.

I record trumpet parts online for anyone who is interested, from amateur songwriters to professional composer. I am part of dbhorns and can also arrange for a horn section to be recorded, with the advantage of a using a section that plays together on a weekly basis and therefore know each other and are incredibly tight.
