In this episode of the Rockstar Violinist podcast Shana interviews our first rock star VIOLIST, and truly one of the most prolific musicians we've had the pleasure of sitting down with. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson is a multi-instrumentalist, arranger, composer, music director, producer, DJ, and educator based in his hometown of Los Angeles, California.

Miguel writes and records and produces his own music but has appeared as an arranger, session player and featured soloist on so many records with so many famous artists that we could not begin to list them all here. (Visit to learn more.)

Miguel is a musical philosopher and a great interview. Sit back and enjoy his conversation with Electric Violin Shop's Shana Tucker. Musical excerpts heard in this episode are (in order):

"The Lung" - Hiatus Kaiyote (string arrangement by MiguelAtwood-Ferguson)

"Mezame" - Miguel Atwood-Ferguson

"Twelve O'Clock Shadow" - FLAKO feat. Miguel Atwood-Ferguson

"Reminisce" - Miguel Atwood Ferguson
