Soren Reiff – guitar player, musical director, producer, composer & author
I’ve been professional guitar player for more than 25 years, playing in house bands on TV-shows, on tons of sessions and major tours. I’ve also been Musical Director on TV-shows since the midnineties.
Albums: “Funky Flavas”, “Miss you” and “Gratitude”
I’ve released three albums as a recording artist. In 2015 I released the album “Gratitude” featuring a killer cast of jazz, funk and fusion greats. This includes Jimmy Haslip, David Garfield, Gary Novak, Michito Sanchez and more. Before that did I release two albums. In 2003 the album “Funky Flavas”, which also features Mike Stern and Michael Ruff. In 2010 the album “Miss you” on which I have the pleasure to play with David Garfield, Will Lee, Steve Ferrone, Ricky Lawson among others.
Musical Director on TV-shows
Since the mid-nineties I’ve been musical director on TV-shows. This work have led me to play with stars like Chaka Khan, David Sanborn, Mark King and many more. Since then I’ve been composing and producing music and tracks for tv, radio and albums.
Professional guitar player
Before I started working as a producer and Musical Director, I had since the eighties worked as a professional guitar player. This includes tons of sessions, major tours and in housebands on hundreds of TV-shows (“Husk lige tandbørsten” a Danish version of “Don’t forget your toothbrush” and “Meyerheim & co.” a Danish version of “The Late night show”).
My books: “Reiffs riffs” & “Reiffs rytmer”
In 2004 I had my debut as a writer with my first book “Reiffs riffs”, concerning how to play guitar solos – now I’ve got five books published. Four of them are about guitar playing – two on soloing and two on rhythm playing. My fifth book is about the music industry and tips on how to do a good career in the business.
Sample library: “Funkguitarist”
I’ve also been involved in a a guitar-sample library called “Funkguitarist” where I’ve played all the samples and was part of the team developing the product. So if you need some funky rhythm guitar parts you can always look after this plugin, I think it’s great and it’ll cover your needs if you are into funk, soul or music related to those styles.
I’ve played live or recorded with: Robert Palmer, Randy Crawford, David Sanborn, Chaka Khan, Mike Stern, David Garfield, Eric Marienthal, Rick Braun, Toots Thielemans, Tracy Silverman, Michael Ruff, Michael Brecker and many more.
