I Am Cello
Cellist Deryn Cullen and composer Dan Cullen have just released I Am Cello; a captivating, dynamic experience that is from start to finish an epic journey that needs to be repeated.

“For my heart is a furnace
And my music is fire
I AM CELLO”
With a decade of Film, TV and Game composition behind them, the Cullens have forged a unique and exhilarating sound, defined by Dan’s bold, expressive and epic compositional style and Deryn’s rich, virtuosic cello playing. Deryn creates extraordinary textures by taking on the role of an entire string section, recording all violin, viola, cello and bass parts on various coveted celli in her broad collection. The result is at once a familar, yet exotic and truly one-of-a-kind sonic experience. I AM CELLO draws from the troubled times engulfing us, painting a musical world of light and dark, weeping over that which divides us and celebrating that which unites us. It is a master work quite unlike any other.
Deryn’s exquisite cello ensembles give Dan’s dramatic orchestration the life and dynamics it deserves; a magnificent live choir recorded in LA accentuates the epic emotion; and Emmy award-winning Epic Music producer Yoav Goren’s creative direction and lush three-dimensional mixes elevate each track to astonishing heights. The result is a musical experience that will evoke passion, tears and joy – sometimes all at once – and will have you reaching for the repeat button.
